Bc.Sound Production

Academy of Performing Arts in Prague - Music and Dance Faculty

The Bachelor?s programme is conceived as an artistic programme for graduates of secondary schools (conservatories, academic high schools, industrial schools, etc.) who have aural abilities as well as technical and musical knowledge and skills at the required level. The basic focus is on training students for individual and team creative work with sound in the area of autonomous sound production, in particular music recordings, realisations of electronic sound, sound post-production, sound dramaturgy of autonomous sound works and stage sound. In addition to the specialist, technical and acoustic-theoretical subjects, the instructional plan is oriented toward supplemental music-theoretical education, knowledge of the history of music and repertoire, aural analysis, recording analysis and orientation in note recordings.

Graduate profile

A graduate of the Bachelor?s programme in Sound Production at HAMU is capable of performing independent creative work with sound. He or she must know how to connect mastery of the latest technical means and methods with an aesthetic quality and individual creativity, and how to connect the psychophysiology of aural perception with the current aesthetic norms of sound communication ? in particular in recordings of classical music and jazz, in realising electronic sound and in generally creative work with sound in the area of autonomous sound production. Graduates can apply their skills as sound-masters, in particular in small recording and music post-production studios, cultural organisations with a requirement of professional work with sound, or as stage sound-masters, pedagogues at primary arts schools (in the fields of Electronic Music Processing and Sound Production).
