The MASTER STUDIES IN SOUND ART OF UNIVERSITY OF BARCELONA focuses on understanding the ideas and techniques required to articulate an art production proposal in the field of sound art, along with the technologies needed to undertake it. It uses reference texts that address new ways of hearing, helping students to articulate new ideas fully contextualized within the framework of international contemporary art.
The master's degree aims to develop a practical and experimental attitude with the representative concepts, procedures and techniques of sound art. We will work with the intersection of languages from different backgrounds: artistic concepts based on experimental art from recent decades and hybrid conceptual frameworks of science and music.
A method of working based on network thinking will be developed, through interrelationship, interaction, interconnection of examples, concepts and artistic works understood as a process. In this work in process the information and experiences are combined, mixed and reorganized in multiple possible ways.
System A practical work system based on direct experimentation with sounds, spaces and materials will be applied. I will develop a cumulative structure of combinatorial experiences aimed at expanding to a variety of relationships and directions.
The Master's Degree is structured in two postgraduate courses and a Final Master's Project. Visit the curriculum of the Master's Degree in Sound Art here.
