ThinkSpace Education, a leading online music school specializing in composing for film, video games and television, in partnership with the University of Chichester, today announced the launch of three groundbreaking new master’s degree programs: Composing for Video Games (Master of Arts), Sound Design for Video Games (Master of Arts) and Game Music and Audio (Master of Fine Art). Commencing this September, ThinkSpace Education courses are the first online master’s degree programs focusing on the field of game music and sound design. Enrollment is now open to postgraduate students at www.thinkspaceeducation.com.
In consultation with leading industry professionals, ThinkSpace have developed a suite of online postgraduate courses to prepare sound designers and composers with the real-world creative and technical skills that future employers are looking for. Thinkspace Education is billed as the only school staffed and tutored exclusively by professional working composers and sound designers, with video game franchise credits including ASSASSIN’S CREED, BIOSHOCK, DRAGON AGE, FALLOUT, MASS EFFECT, TOMB RAIDER and many more.
ThinkSpace Education’s partner institution, the University of Chichester also has close links with the games community and the program liaison tutor Dr Stephen Baystead has a long list of credits as a top game composer (NEED FOR SPEED, PROJECT CARS and many more) as well as audio director at Slightly Mad Studios.
Closing the gap between academia and the real-world of game music and sound, ThinkSpace Education courses provide personal one-to-one tuition from top professional composers and sound designers; work on a wide range of games including commercial releases; detailed feedback from a range of tutors, online workshops and tutorial groups, forum discussions and exclusive webinars.
Guy Michelmore, ThinkSpace Education’s course director and an EMMY nominated film, games and television composer, commented, “There are plenty of music and sound production schools yet, despite increasing interest in video game soundtracks, almost none who specialize in game music and audio. We’re excited to offer the first online master’s degrees in composing and sound design for video games.”
