Todays Spotlight: Digital Music and Sound Arts Degree Show 2017

Every year, our students’ interests, talents and curiosities are manifested in many surprising and innovative ways. Each degree show delivers a whole new range of explorations, provocations and creative outputs. Either in the form of instrument building, video game design, sound installation art or sound for film and new media, the DMSA students offer new perspectives into what is possible through sound and a way of thinking about and doing with sound that goes beyond the audible into other senses, materials, technologies and the body. The 2017 Degree Show presented a series of ambitious, at times, large scale projects that grasped the attention of audiences and industry specialiststs who attended the Degree Show. Our students Guoda Dirzyte and Jordan Edge won awards for the outstanding quality of their pieces. This is of course the result of hard work often involving the extensive support of our technical staff and mentoring and guidance by our academic team.
