Betreff: [cec-c] Call for applications for MSc. in Sound and Music Computing, Aalborg University in Copenhagen

Please help us to spread the word about our SMC education in Copenhagen:

Aalborg University Copenhagen offers a Master education in Sound and Music Computing.
A limited number of spaces are available. Tuition is free for EU/EEA citizens, deadline for international applicants March 15.

The two-year master’s education provides proficiency in the foundations of audio and music technologies, such that graduates can actively contribute to advancing the current generation.

Coursework includes: sound analysis, synthesis and processing; music perception and cognition; physics based sound synthesis and control; novel interfaces for musical expression; augmented performance; sound for multimodal environments; sonic interaction design; and music informatics and intelligence. A perspective from one of our current students: http://www.en.aau.dk/education/master/sound-and-music-computing/academic-content/testimonials/music-technology-is-the-future.cid239042

Aalborg University Copenhagen works with „problem based learning“ (PBL), in which each semester combines classwork with project work to increase the extent and depth to which students interact with the subject matter, as well as the faculty. With this unique approach to learning, students gain considerable experience solving real problems individually and in groups, and with collaboration by members of the faculty.

Furthermore, there are many resources available for projects at Aalborg University Copenhagen, including high-end facilities and equipment, such as: anechoic chambers for acoustics work and recording; virtual reality labs including motion capture with a system of 64+ speakers set up as a wavefield array / ambisonics, etc.; an augmented cognition lab with equipment for measurement biophysiological signals such as electroencephalography (EEG), skin conductance and eye-movements; an augmented performance lab with equipment for advanced explorations in musical expressivity and gestural interaction; and an electronic and prototyping Fab Lab with 3D printing and laser cutting facilities.
