The Master of Music in Commercial Music Technology is a progressive degree that focuses on the creation, development, and distribution of commercial audio. As audio creators, we rely on technologies that allow us to pursue a variety of creative careers. The course promotes research and exploration of these technologies as well as their contextual application. Understanding their history and how it relates to future industries. Special audio, advanced recording, mixing and mastering techniques, synthesis, music, and the moving image are all areas of study.
