The field of contemporary experimental music and sound art is constantly growing.
The newly revised international programme for Experimental Composition and Creation mirrors this process and looks for creators who have a curiosity for interdisciplinary situations, with a master programme tailored for your personal artistic development.
If you are active as a composer or performer within instrumental/vocal music, sound art, performance art, sound installation, electronic music, free improvised music or areas neighbouring these fields, we invite you to send us your application. Your application consists of a description of an explorative project that continues through the entire programme.
Structure of the programme
The Music, Composition programme from University of Gothenburg is designed to provide intensive scheduled studies during fourteen weeks spread out during the autumn and spring semesters. The scheduled activities include individual sessions with professors and supervisors, collective class with your fellow students, project weeks with invited guests within different artistic fields, lab/workshop sessions where you interact within the class, collaborations with professional ensembles.
The weeks in between are for developing your composing/performance, self-studies and own exploration connected to your individual work.
