Art of Sound

Sound and media increasingly play an important role in today's society. We not only think of music productions and sound design for concerts or visual media, but also for example new developments in the field of 3D sound, new approaches to spatiality in sound amplification or the artificial creation of virtual sound worlds. New techniques such as object-based audio make their entrance into the sound world, where, among other things, spatiality, placement and mixing preferences are described with meta-data and the listener can ultimately even have an influence on the sound image.

Partly due to these technological developments, we see that there is a need for specialists who can design the content for these media in a professional and creative way. Not only does technology offer new creative possibilities, but these possibilities also require new creative insights. This means that these specialists must not only have technical skills, but especially creative skills at a high level.

The Art of Sound master's program offers tailor-made education based on three pillars: artistic development, professional preparation and research. These three pillars are closely linked and arise from the same question: what will my position be in the professional field? Whereas the Art of Sound bachelor's program is aimed at developing the skills needed to get started in professional practice, the master's program focuses on the creative development of the student. Individual coaches are available for the main subject, research and for professional practice projects. Practical projects are carried out in a team context.


You have a Bachelor of Music degree with a Tonmeister / Music Recording specialization, or similar. You have a clear idea about the position that you want to take in the professional practice, but you are looking for more knowledge and in-depth knowledge that are needed to achieve your goal. You have a specific research question that follows directly from your ideas about your position in the professional practice. You are good at conducting research independently, but you need an expert who challenges and inspires you. You have a clear vision of what your graduation project should be and how it is related to your research question and your future position in the professional practice. You show initiative, you have organizational skills and you are willing to work hard at irregular times.
