New Master in Composition with Focus on AI - HfM Trossingen

Dear members of the Flucoma community,

Starting in October 2023, the University of Music (HfM) Trossingen (Germany) will offer a master’s degree program that is unique in Europe and aims to train a new generation of artistically and technically competent composers, sound artists, and music designers, especially by critically exploring the creative possibilities of AI-based technologies.

This program (Master of Music in Composition*) builds on the music technology teaching foundations of the HfM Trossingen and takes place in close cooperation with Furtwangen University. The students are taught by an internationally renowned team of researchers and experienced artistic practitioners, first and foremost Prof. Dr. Luc Döbereiner and Prof. Dr. Joachim Goßmann. In addition, this course is being developed within the framework of a cross-university project funded by the BMBF (KISS - Artificial Intelligence Service and Systems), whose long-term goal is to establish a center of excellence for the sustainable development of AI.
As part of the master’s program, interested students with prior musical and/or technical experience at the bachelor’s level can choose one of three concentrations: Music Design, Instrumental Composition, or Electroacoustic Composition. Available modules of study range from Digital Lutherie, Experimental Sound Synthesis, and Interface Design to Sound Ecology and Digital Ethics. In addition, a new space for the conception, experimentation and realisation of artistic projects (“Latent Space” - Space for Artistic Research and Design in Music and AI) is being created.

Further information about the program, application requirements can be found on the following page: AI in Music.
The application period for the upcoming winter semester is March 1, 2023 to April 1, 2023. If you know students who might be interested in this study offer, please forward this message!

All the best,
Luc Döbereiner
