"Performance: Setting a tone against a wall at a slant." Rolf Julius


Sound Studies and Sonic Arts investigates, questions, analyses and shapes auditory cultures and practices. Our methods are scholarly and artistic, our field is the world of sound with all its conditions and implications. In a truly interdisciplinary program, we confront theory, technology, design, and artistic creation, so that students may engage in a multi-facetted discourse to develop their specific practices.

Sound Studies and Sonic Arts is three-year part-time program with intense months (April thru July) of rigorous course work and long stretches of project-based study. After one semester of basic training, we encourage students to pick from our broad curriculum or that of adjacent fields from UdK or other Berlin universities to define their own focus. The concluding master project may be creative, theoretical or situated in the field of artistic research.
