Programme Overview

BDes (Hons) Sound for the Moving Image is a two year degree programme, which has been running since 2018. Applications are welcomed from students entering directly into year 3, with articulation from HND programmes at college, or from mature students with relevant experience. The programme creates a learning environment for students to develop their conceptual and technical skills in sound for the moving image. Applications are welcomed from students entering directly into year 3, with articulation from HND programmes at college, or from mature students with relevant experience. Students begin by recording and constructing soundscapes, then branch out to create original documentary/abstract/narrative film, eventually building interactive audio-visual installations. The fundamentals are taught in Year 3 (stereo sound production, fixed frame video, and interactive systems) before embarking on more complex practices in Year 4 (such as multi-channel spatial audio, 360 film, music for picture, as well as self-directed projects in the student’s chosen medium). The studios in our department allow students to make their stamp on the film, broadcast and game industries – but also the art world. That means that we share key pedagogical approaches across the art school. We all emphasise collective studio practice with connected, active learning - spotlighting practitioner role models from art and science. We use state of the art interactive learning technologies such as Miro and Padlet – so that our lecturers deliver their expertise, and students can reply in their chosen format (such as text replies, sharing media, and class discussion). Students and staff share their insights from their own worldview, so students build a creative practice that is informed by their cultural experience. All GSA degree programmes are validated by the University of Glasgow.
