Music Design regards the work with acoustics as a part of an overall production which listeners experience in a multimedial and multisensory way. Music designers work closely in the design and implementation of this production with other artists, marketing and product acoustics experts from the areas of brand communication, product development, architecture, media installations, film, interactive applications and mobile content. In doing so, music designers produce acoustics from elements of (composed) music, speech, sound and noises, and can analyse and evaluate these from an aesthetic and psychoacoustic viewpoint.
Music designers can be employed or self-employed in the following areas:
- Audio-/sound design
- Sound control
- Media production
- Project management
- Audio-supervision and sound design for production companies (music, video, computer applications/games, advertising)
- Agencies (advertising, advertising film, web and events agencies), radio/TV and music schools
