Cass Alumma accepted at Columbia University

Cass alumna Alice Emily will start the MFA Interdepartmental Sound Arts at the Computer Music Center (Columbia University) in September 2014.

Date: 28 April 2014

Cass alumna Alice Emily will start  the MFA Interdepartmental Sound Arts at the Computer Music Center (Columbia University) in September 2014. The course at Columbia is 2 years long, and it is new to Columbia having run only since September 2013, so that Alice will be enrolling onto the second intake. Sound Arts is also a rather new artistic discipline, which has a variety of creative outlets but where sound is the key component. The MA is essentially a Fine Art program with the entire 2 years being aimed at the completion of a final year exhibition/show.

Javier Garavaglia, course leader for BSc Music Technology Sound for Media said "The fact that this MA in NYC has only four places available puts into perspective not only the type of education Alice received at the CASS during her studies in the Sound for Media Music Tech course, but also her talent and dedication to this particular type of Sound Art."

Alice's final project for the BSc Sound for Media at the CASS can be seen here.

Congratulations to Alice!
