Would you be kind to invite any qualified undergraduate students to

consider UM for a Master of Music in Digital Arts and Sound Design at

UM?Many thanks.


The University of Miami’s Frost School of Music offers a Master of Music

degree in Digital Arts and Sound Design (M.M.). The degree provides

students with the opportunity to develop advanced compositional skills

in digital music and arts. The thesis project for this degree will

consist of a major work composed in the areas of digital music, sound

installation or multimedia.

The Frost School of Music is equipped with a number of state-of-the art

music technology studios which are available to the students. The DASD

students are encouraged to take advantage of collaborating with the

students and faculty from other disciplines. In addition to on-campus

opportunities, we have set up a network of relationships with major

music, technology and art institutions in Miami, which the students are

encouraged to explore. Interactive multimodal installations driven by

sensor technologies, techno-human performances, electronic music

ensemble events and outdoor public sonic experiences exemplify the

program’s focus on artistic exploration of new technologies. In addition

to their work with the faculty, the students interact with the visiting

artists that in the past included Jonty Harrison, Laurie Anderson, Mason

Bates Pamela Z, Jaroslav Kapuscinski and Mari Kimura to name a few.

To apply, the student must submit a portfolio


of original electroacoustic and/or multimedia works. The portfolio

should include items such as sound recordings, videos, programming

examples and any other related documentation. For specific requirements,

please refer to the Graduate Portfolio Requirements


After review of the portfolios, finalists will be invited to do an

on-campus interview. Teaching Assistantships are available to highly

competitive applicants. To be considered, the student must interview

with the department faculty.
