In the Music Production, Technology, and Innovation program at Berklee College Valencia, students learn hybrid arranging, composition, recording, editing, sound manipulation techniques, and live interactive performance systems. They also explore the art and science of musical innovation and case studies of transformative music innovators.

Students apply the principles of innovation to an advanced music project, which may be a technology-aided composition, a large-scale recording project, and/or live performances that may feature interactivity; multi-channel audio; digital visual expressions; originally designed instruments and systems; and/or musical applications for web and mobile devices. Other innovations that push the boundaries of music and technology may also be possible for this culminating project.

The goal is to produce a body of work that will prepare students for a career in music technology innovation, composition and production, interactive and mixed media, remixing, electronic musicianship, DJing, software and game development, live performance in solo and ensemble settings, and/or education. Upon completing the program, students will also be well prepared to adapt to rapid changes and new creative directions in the music industry.
