About the research project

Music and Media explores the various functions of music for established and emergent media, and investigates the nexus of technological innovation and music creation. This project will harness the multidisciplinary strengths of the University of Tasmania's School of Creative Arts and Media, and the state-of-the-art technology of the Hedberg - the University's new performing arts centre. Music for Media affords research potential to those wishing to explore areas such as film music, music for theatre, composition for 3D sound environments - utilising the Hedberg's AFC system, immersive and spatial audio design and composition, and the relationships between sound/music, screen, light, space, and audience experience.
