The one year Masters course introduces students from a variety of
backgrounds to creative and technical aspects of Sonic Arts. The course is
composed of project based modules which cover the following areas: Musical
Acoustics, Digital Recording, Sound Design, Electroacoustic Composition,
Computer Programming, New Interfaces for Musical Expression and Live
Electronic Performance. The programme culminates in a summer project
through which students can explore particular technical, creative or
cultural aspects of the Course.

The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) is a newly established centre of
excellence, dedicated to the research of music technology. This unique
interdisciplinary project has united internationally recognised experts in
the areas of musical composition, signal processing, internet technology
and digital hardware. The Centre is established in a purpose-built facility
located alongside the engineering departments of Queen's University.

The centrepiece of SARC, the Sonic Laboratory, provides a unique space for
cutting-edge initiatives in the creation and delivery of music and audio.
The Sonic Laboratory's uniqueness is vested in the degree of flexibility it
can provide for experiments in 3D sound diffusion and for ground-breaking
compositional and performance work within a purpose-built, variable
acoustic space.

The Centre was completed in October 2003 and was officially opened by
Karlheinz Stockhausen in April 2004.
