About Music and Technology
Carnegie Mellon University’s Music and Technology degree programs span music and
various aspects of technology, including topics grounded in both
electrical engineering and computer science. The degrees offered
are Bachelor of Science in Music
and Master of
Science in Music and Technology
The Music and Technology degrees are awarded at the University level
and administered by the School of Music with participation by faculty,
department heads, and deans across the University.
Areas of Study
The Music and Technology programs draw upon the world-class resources
of Carnegie Mellon University. Students can pursue areas such as:
- Recording Technology - the art and science of music recording
- Audio Engineering - the design and analysis of electronics,
algorithms, sensors, and transducers for audio
- Digital Audio Effects - signal processing for music manipulation
- New Musical Instruments and Interfaces - electronics,
mechanics, sensors for musical interaction
- Computer Music - the intersection of computer science and music
- Interactive Music Software - real-time performanc using
- Music Information Retrieval - music databases, data mining,
large-scale content-based search
- Sound Synthesis - models of sound production and control,
including both realistic simulations of traditional instruments and
completely new sounds
- Music Languages - exploring effective ways to program music
applications, including programming systems and live coding
- Musical Robotics - electro-mechanical instruments played by
- Music Composition - with a focus on electro-acoustic
music using state-of-the-art tools and techniques
- Music Performance - with an emphasis on live electronic and interactive
- Music Theory - especially computer models and implementations,
algorithmic composition, use of timbral and spectral models
