Georgia Tech is now accepting applications for the MS and PhD programs = in music technology for matriculation in August 2014. All PhD students, = and a limited number of MS students, receive graduate research = assistantships that cover tuition and pay a competitive monthly stipend. = The deadline for applications is January 31, 2014. The MS in Music Technology is a two-year program that instills in = students the theoretical foundation, technical skills, and creative = aptitude to design the disruptive technologies that will enable new = modes of music creation and consumption in a changing industry. Students = take courses in areas such as music information retrieval, music = perception and cognition, signal processing, interactive music, the = history of electronic music, and technology ensemble. They also work = closely with faculty on collaborative research projects and on their own = MS project or thesis. Recent students in the program have worked and/or = interned at companies such as Apple, Avid, Dolby, Bose, Gracenote, Rdio, = Sennheiser, Ableton, Echo Nest, and Smule, and gone on to PhD studies. = Applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree in music, = computing, engineering, or a related discipline, and they should possess = both strong musical and technical skills. Students in the PhD program in Music Technology pursue individualized = research agendas in close collaboration with faculty in areas such as = interactive music, robotic musicianship, music information retrieval, = digital signal processing, mobile music, network music, and music = education, focusing on conducting and disseminating novel research with = a broad impact. PhD students are also trained in research methods, = teaching pedagogy, and an interdisciplinary minor field as they prepare = for careers in academia, at industry research labs, or in their own = startup companies. PhD applicants are expected to hold a Masters degree = in music technology or from an allied field, such as computing, music, = engineering, or media arts and sciences. All applicants must demonstrate = mastery of core masters-level material covered in Music Technology, = including music theory, performance, composition, and/or analysis; music = information retrieval; digital signal processing and synthesis; = interactive music systems design; and music cognition. Both the MS and PhD programs are housed within the School of Music at = Georgia Tech, in close collaboration with the Georgia Tech Center for = Music Technology (GTCMT). The GTCMT is an international center for = creative and technological research in music, focusing on the = development and deployment of innovative musical technologies that = transform the ways in which we create and experience music. Its mission = is to provide a collaborative framework for committed students, faculty, = and researchers from all across campus to apply their musical, = technological, and scientific creativity to the development of = innovative artistic and technological artifacts. Core faculty in the music technology program include Gil Weinberg = (robotic musicianship, mobile music, and sonification), Jason Freeman = (participatory and collaborative systems, education, and composition), = Alexander Lerch (music information retrieval and digital signal = processing), Timothy Hsu (acoustics), Frank Clark (multimedia and = network music), and Chris Moore (recording and production).
