Electronic Studio Basel (ESB)
The Electronic Studio Basel, as part of the Hoschule für Musik FHNW, offers Bachelor and Master studies in Audio Design.
The Audio Design studies are focused on electronic and electro-acoustic music in a contemporary artistic context. By being introduced to many different practices of composition, performance, and production of electronic music, our students are given the skills and knowledge to work in a variety of interesting fields. Our multiple studios are equipped with a diverse range of music technology (from state-of-the-art mastering tools to historical synthesisers and multichannel studio settings), that inspires and encourages our students to do a lot of practice-based work. With a strong emphasis on the rich historical and theoretical background of electronic music, our students acquire a strong technical foundation in the fields of audio technology and music programming. Students of the Electronic Studio are also given opportunities to perform and train in classical music to develop a high level of musicianship benefitting their future professional work.
