Sonology is the discipline that integrates technology into music. The Sonology specialty trains professionals in the field of music technology, within an eminently musical context, and enables them to face critically the various possibilities that technology provides to support the creation, transmission and dissemination of music, in the different formats in which it can be presented.
At the end of your Sonology studies, you will have the ability to manage the processes related to the creation, adaptation and critical application of technological resources to support the composition, interpretation, recording and dissemination of music. Your activity can therefore be carried out in various environments: recording studios, concert halls, radio stations, network broadcasts or companies whose objectives include the production and dissemination of music.
This specialty will introduce you to various media and technologies so that you can learn to work in an organized and efficient way in a recording studio, to detect and solve problems with the various technologies available, to make gestural and musical control interfaces, to plan and to perform musical productions, to create and transform sounds for creative purposes or to support soundtracks or multimedia productions, and to develop computer software to support musical creation, among others.
