The unit provides a practical introduction into the creation of, and aesthetics for music and moving image. Topics for discussion will include, but are not be limited to: relationships between image and sound, diegetic and non-diegetic sound, thematic development, partnerships between composers, directors and other such collaborations within the creative sector, sound design, music for games and animation, and non-commercial applications of music for image (audiovisual art, cymatics etc). The unit seeks to enable students the ability to develop a skillset within their own studio spaces for the creation and dissemination of their projects; both at a sector ready, as well as a technically proficient level. Importantly, students will be presented with a variety of possible projects and collaborations with industry partners across differing creative sectors.
