About

This Sound master's programme at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David focuses upon the whole spectrum of sound as a social phenomenon in theory and practice, from listening, generating and recording to its potential for transforming our experiences, environments, lives and cultures.

Overview

Sound is an area of growing social, cultural and environmental importance -  yet it is often overlooked and underappreciated in our overwhelmingly visual, screen-based society. It has great emotional power for communication through storytelling, music, and more subtle and evocative forms.
