Electronic Music and Media Arts   BA programme

For those, who're interested in sound, noise, silence and their electronic / digitals forms. For those, who doesn't accept the media of sound and vision in the closed box, rather open it for experimenting, improvising. Therefore for those, who're interested in sound art, interactive arts, networked projects and performative arts.
We're running educational projects since 1996 in the field of electroacoustic  music, video art and design, presenting a special role in the faculty, where both of the fine arts and musician students cooperate in the projects. With starting the BA programme in electronic music and media arts we plan to cover the gap in the study of electronic music and in wider perspective, specialized to the arts of new media.
