The Sound of Innovation is about examining and discovery. About inventing innovative products, projects, and concepts that have roots in music, but reach far beyond. This ArtEZ University of the Arts master’s programme urges you to explore new directions and opportunities.


As an innovative musician, composer, sound artist, producer, teacher, manager or scientist it is up to you to step forward: to see past what is, to disrupt and to break new common ground between different areas of expertise within the fields of creative art, tech, education, and (health)care.

The Sound of Innovation offers a stimulating interdisciplinary environment from which to experiment. You focus on self-reflection and research in order to build sustainable and alternative futures; while your passions become the building blocks, the music serves as the cement.


This ArtEZ University of the Arts Master's course helps you to open up your horizon and to look for cooperation in unexpected places. As a graduate, you will have developed a great nose for opportunities and a potential to work across different areas of expertise, collaborating with local and international professionals within and outside the music field to think up things that have not yet been conceived – whether it be new instruments or notation systems, sound design for museums and exhibitions, innovations in multimedia or education, burgeoning festivals and conferences, technologies, or health care applications.
