Goals of the Master is to prepare:

  • experts in the fields of electroacoustics and computer science, capable of dealing with direction and sound reinforcement of concerts and live performances , design of recording studios and systems related to the audio production (including the latest loudspeaker systems and digital audio controls) ;

  • audio experts in the field of multimedia publishing;

  • experts in recording and cataloguing of sound sources ;

  • sound engineers and designers of TV studios, audio equipment, recording studios, concert events .

Of consequence, the possible employment areas are:

  • sound recording engineer,

  • audio processing and restoration technician,

  • computer music developer and producer,

  • Tonmeister,

  • sound designer for indoor and outdoor performances.

 

The course imparts technical and humanistic training: it is based on one hand on the engineering and acoustics expertise, using resources of the Casa del Suono and the LABEL of Casa della Musica , on the other hand on training in History of Music, music critics and musical sound . The training is similar to that required for the formation of a Tonmeister or a Realizateur Informatique Musicale, requiring sophisticated technical and engineering skills combined with musical training and cultural training for proper handling of sound objects .
