What is this course about?My main question is, is it worth it, I mean, although the course sounds brilliant in itself, the practical value from what I have been told by others and somewhat of myself is lacking, and by practical I mean, what jobs would be available to me in the end.
This course is the first of its kind to combine the domains of sound and music, and prepare students for new emerging domains that require the confluence of sound in design and interaction.
Students' learning outcomes include expression through creative practice, and technical fluency across a range of technologies.
Why study this course?
The course appeals to students with an interest in music, creative arts, design and technology or multimedia. It converges creative practice (art thinking) and innovative solution (design thinking) through music and sound. It offers a unique, contemporary sound and music degree experience by merging art and technology across domains of composition, entertainment and audio technology, as well as combining features of music and audio engineering with interaction design.
"What jobs are there for graduates?Only problem is these jobs, at the present moment in Australia, aren't incredibly common, and although I can do business electives, It still would be a narrow path to take by entering this course.
Career options include working in sound design or production across a diverse range of media, communication and design outlets including music, animation, web applications, gaming, product design, exhibition design and architecture. Specific examples include new media artists, interactive media artists, installation artists/sound sculptors, computer musicians, electronic music composers, product audio designers, software interface designers, e-fashion designers, new sonic interface designers, information system (sonification) designers and mobile/smart-phone and device audio interface designers."
