The Master of Music in Sonology offers context for independant work by students in the areas of the composition of electronic music, algorithmic composition, live electronic music, sound synthesis, sound installations, DSP research etc. Students meet each other during weekly colloquia and bi-weekly Research Seminars. The student works on a thesis and during their course will give two presentations during the Research Seminars, and will give two of the colloquiae.

The Sonology master’s programme serves as an excellent preparation for doctoral research – graduates have continued their studies in PhD programmes at universities such as Stanford University (Björn Erlach, Mauricio Rodriquez), Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona (Ángel Faraldo), Queen’s University, Belfast (Miguel Negraõ, Henry Vega), University of Washington, Seattle (Stelios Manousakis, Hector Bravo Bernard), University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz (Luc Döbereiner), University of Huddersfield (Barbara Ellison), University of Birmingham (Sergio Luque, Yota Morimoto, Jan Trützschler von Falkenstein), University of Sheffield (Amy Beeston), Leiden University (Juan Parra Cancino, Babis Giannakopoulos), Erasmus University, Rotterdam (Stuart Griffin), University of Salamanca (Ángel Arranz), University of Porto (Filipe Lopes), Brunel University, London (Hugo Morales Murguía), University of Victoria (Jakob Leben) and Oxford University (Patrick Valiquet).
