Interactive Composition is an intensive, collaborative program giving students the skills to create music and sound for a range of contemporary media contexts.
This major works closely with all other disciplines within the Faculty and across the University and focuses on commercially driven cross-art modes of composition – for events, film, television, animation, theatre, music theatre, dance, pop music, advertising, video gaming, online sites, installation art and sound design.
