Creative Music Technology at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music focuses on the creative application of technology within professional music, sound, broadcast and multimedia and research contexts.
Students will develop creative and music technology skills for employment within new media, composition, recording and performance creative industries such as sound engineering, computer music, audio-visual production and post-production, mastering, scoring for film and multimedia, audio for games, software development, and multimedia production.
We often welcome leading artists and engineers as guest lecturers, to provide insights into professional workflows and creative practices.
As part of a large and active school of music, Creative Music Technology emphasises the integration of musical and technical skills with a close connection with the Performance and Composition programs, encouraging collaborations that explore new relationships between experimental and traditional approaches to music.
Students studying Creative Music Technology will experience a holistic music education, studying subjects in music theory, history, composition and performance.
“My experience of working in the studio with Ben Grayson [Co-ordinator] and the Creative Music Technology students made me wish that I’d had his tuition when I first started my career in music. The years that I spent apologising for my inability to communicate in the studio resulting in wasted time and money, could have all have been avoided. If you’re the slightest bit interested in being a recording artist or a producer-engineer, then this course is an absolute prerequisite!” – Kate Ceberano
“The opportunity to collaborate and interact with some of the best young jazz and classical musicians in the country make the music technology course at Monash both unique and essential.” – Tamil Rogeon (True Live, Raah Project)
