Advanced Music Production - MUS300

Building on MUS203, this unit examines advanced techniques for music production. Moving beyond desktop music production and software tools, students learn about the recording studio environment using studio hardware and production tools. It addresses areas including: digital audio theory; microphone techniques and placement; fundamentals of audio engineering; and mixing and mastering concepts. Students produce original creative music works using a fully-equipped music studio, gaining practical studio experience. Further aspects of this unit include the establishment of critical listening skills, research of specific musical genres, and the development of an understanding of audio production concepts in a recording studio environment. Students obtain a knowledge base which may be applied to many areas of music production in real-world contexts, and create recordings that incorporate a practical and theoretical understanding of contemporary music production.
