Composition and Music Technology students are offered streams in classical, electronic, film, popular and jazz music, as well as sound art installation.
The ethos of the composition program centres on learning through practical experience, performance and collaboration. At every stage, our students collaborate on projects in the dance, film, video, electronic arts, gaming and theatre departments. All students study recording, mixing, mastering and online networking, as well as comprehensive composition approaches for the 21st century.
The Composer in Residence program provides access to a range of visiting artists from the community, and students are provided with opportunities to engage with industry throughout the course. In addition, all students are involved in the performance of electroacoustic music through the ECUatorial and Aletheia student ensembles, and are encouraged to work with music performance majors for the performance of their works.
