Able to select approaches appropriate for professional contexts, you will use current technologies in creative ways and develop innovative solutions to prescient problems and explore the potentials of software and hardware.
Hosted at The Performance Hub at our Walsall Campus, music, dance and drama teaching and learning provision are integrated in one building. Boasting exceptional facilities to support student learning at the highest level, the building includes two recording studios with analogue and digital recording/mixing/mastering facilities and Pro Tools HD technology, plus two large computer suites equipped with 60 iMacs running Pro Tools, Logic, Final Cut Pro, and a variety of specialist Open Source software. The proposal for the Audio Technology Project is developed in the Research and Development module, providing time and opportunity to consider the project’s direction thoroughly, and to explore possibilities for collaborative/interdisciplinary working.
