Call for application, Master of Music degree: Klang und Realität. Robert Schumann Hochschule Dusseldorf, Germany. Application deadline: October 31, 2022

The Klang und Realität master’s program is housed at the Institute of Music and Media, which brings together performative, compositional, and algorithmic forms of contemporary art. In keeping with that expansive mission, the program combines many approaches of time based art.

Musical practice is not bound to musical instruments; it encompasses many approaches to art and research. Accordingly, the master’s program is open to students from all disciplinary backgrounds. Student projects are at the center of this process, continually re-conceptualized over two years of study on the basis of critical and multi-perspectival feedback. During their studies, students are supported by an international and versatile team of lecturers and professors.

Students design and execute these projects in collaboration with their peers, working in one of two areas of focus, Epistemic Media or Transmedia Forms, each of which opens up innovative avenues of inquiry.

The Epistemic Media concentration emphasizes independent research and the development of new methods in the humanities, sciences, and arts. The Transmedia Forms concentration, conceived as an extension of contemporary compositional environments, aims to actively translate and integrate musical, artistic, and media processes.

Over the course of their studies, students will develop positions independently. They learn to reflect their own approach in relation with artistic, academic, political, and scientific contexts and will graduate prepared to shape, advance, and even anticipate developments in the 21st century.

The application deadline is October 31, 2022. Further information can be found here.
