Instruments & Interfaces Programme

The master’s programme “Instruments & Interfaces” was offered by the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague together with STEIM in Amsterdam, and started in September 2011. Unfortunately, STEIM ceased to exist in January 2021 (see As a result, it is no longer possible to admit new students to the Instruments & Interfaces programme. However, research project proposals in the field of Instruments & Interfaces will still be considered. The Institute of Sonology itself has always maintained an interest in research issues around electronic/digital instrument design and interface development, and  candidates who wish to submit such a proposal are kindly asked to apply for the regular Master of Music in Sonology.
