The recording and production of music is central to the development of new contemporary works. With the music industry becoming increasingly decentralised, industry professionals are using readily available DIY recording technologies to engage in independent and collaborative creative practice. This course will help students working in music to develop a proficiency in applying the theory and practice of these technologies. Technical skills developed by students in this course can in turn directly translate to opportunities in a range of other creative disciplines that utilise recorded music and sound, including theatre, film, television, and radio.

This course introduces the practical and theoretical procedures employed by musicians when recording a new musical work. Students are introduced to recording techniques and technologies. Students are then mentored through an application of their learning in generating new recorded material.* The course also offers students a chance to participate in collaborative learning activities introducing them to new perspectives and facilitating key network building opportunities.

Assessment outcomes in this course will contribute directly to the development of a professional portfolio of creative work.

*This course assumes students have the ability to operate a computer and navigate a file-system and the ability to contribute to the creation of a new musical work.
