The arrangement of and with sound is the central topic of the interuniversitary and interdisciplinary “Sound Design” master’s programme. Students not only learn about the artistic design, the media-enabled and technical processing of sound, they also learn about semantic and psychoacoustic perception. The main areas besides audio production for video design, game design and mobile apps are sonic interaction design, sonification, audio branding and product sound design for the industry. In the areas of acoustic environment, soundscapes and sound ecology we examine the significance of hearing in a society that is visually dominated. This interdisciplinary course is offered in cooperation with FH JOANNEUM - University of Applied Sciences.
