The Music Design pathway is divided into the following four strands: Composition, Music Production, Music Technology and Sound Design.
Music is not just about playing instruments and composing. Often, music has to be designed, which means that account must be taken of the suitable design and production processes and the context for which the music is created and performed. Other important factors are the application of technology, multidisciplinary collaboration and research. Alongside the quality of performance, composition and interpretation, all these factors influence the final musical product, and should therefore be determined by a musician. This vision and approach is what distinguishes the Music Design pathway.
