The Master's degree course is directed at Music and Arts graduates wishing to research and develop artistically formative, compositional intentions in highly advanced studies focusing on the spatial and intermediate strategies of composition. The course is based on the latest developments in an intermediate understanding of music and art, which has emerged in the past two decades. Here currents of new music, electronic composition, sound art, audiovisual art and radiophonic art, so-called Ars Acustica, focus on one thematic unit. At the highest artistic level, compositional approaches with a focus on spatial and intermediate composition strategies are researched and developed. This includes the development of surround sound or sound installations as well as performative concepts or media representations.
