Music Technology 1B FCJ118



The Music Technology major is devoted to developing the student's awareness of what is required for musical expression utilising music technology, as well as how and why this might be achieved, at a professional level. Using industry standard audio design tools, students will engage in problem-based learning requiring them to analyse, experiment with, reflect on revise and develop their craft and skill as music technologists. In this second unit students build upon the concepts, theories and practices relating to music technology established in the earlier unit.
