"It is this research and practice that influences the teaching and learning on the MA Sound Arts course, enabling artists and musicians from a variety of backgrounds to do things with sound in their own way but informed by a contemporary sonic output.
"The aim is to facilitate each student’s individual development while fostering contextual and conceptual awareness and focusing on the sensorial material of sound itself too.
"The relationship between reflection and practice is an essential feature of the course as it aims to encourage students to understand writing, thinking, listening and composing, making sound art work, as part of one integrated practice."
