About

The Music, Composition programme of the University of Gothenburg provides the opportunity for active creators within the experimental music and sound art field to develop and deepen their personal artistic practice. You will bring your artistic practice to a new level, interact closely with fellow students, and be inspired by international teachers who are experts in music and other art forms.

Overview

About

Experimental composition and creation

The field of contemporary experimental music and sound art is continuously 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. If you are active as a composer or performer within instrumental or vocal music, sound art, performance art, sound installation, electronic music, free improvised music, or areas neighbouring these fields, and want to tailor your education to your personal artistic interests and goals, we invite you to send us your application. 

In-depth explorative process

We offer the opportunity to follow an explorative project through the entire programme, beginning already with your application where you submit a description of your idea. Throughout the Music, Composition programme of the University of Gothenburg, you will examine new perspectives and challenge your practices through encounters with your fellow students, your supervisor, and our guest teachers who are experts from the music field and other art forms. You will receive support from professors at our department as well as other departments at the Academy of Music and Drama, such as Contemporary Performative Arts, Improvisation, World Music, Opera, and Music and Sound Production, to suit your specific ongoing music exploration.

Diverse collaborations

The programme is characterized by an interdisciplinary environment through interaction with fellow students and visiting lecturers, and we have close links to the research environment at the institution, faculty, and University. You will have access to ongoing collaborations with established musicians and ensembles such as Mimitabu, Gageego, Curious Chamber Players, Musica Vitae string orchestra, and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. We frequently collaborate with venues and institutions such as Röda Sten, the Gothenburg Museum of Art, Atalante, and Nefertiti.

Programme Structure

  • The programme 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 classes with your fellow students, project weeks with invited guests within different artistic fields, lab and workshop sessions where you interact within the class and with other master’s programmes, and collaborations with professional ensembles.
  • The Independent Project course accounts for one fourth of the programme, and you have a great deal of freedom to experiment and explore new ideas and reflect on your choices. You proceed with your investigative work independently in consultation with your supervisor.
