New Master of Music in Composition with AI

Starting in October 2023, the University of Music (HfM) Trossingen 
(Germany) will offer a master’s degree program that is unique in Europe 
and aims to train a new generation of artistically and technically 
competent composers, sound artists, and music designers, especially by 
critically exploring the creative possibilities of AI-based technologies.

This program (Master of Music in Composition) builds on the music 
technology teaching foundations of the HfM Trossingen and takes place in 
close cooperation with Furtwangen University. The students are taught by 
an internationally renowned team of researchers and experienced artistic 
practitioners, first and foremost Prof. Dr. Luc Döbereiner and Prof. Dr. 
Joachim Goßmann. In addition, this course is being developed within the 
framework of a cross-university project funded by the BMBF (KISS – 
Artificial Intelligence Service and Systems), whose long-term goal is to 
establish a center of excellence for the sustainable development of AI.
As part of the master’s program, interested students with prior musical 
and/or technical experience at bachelor’s level can choose one of 
three concentrations: Music Design, Instrumental Composition, or 
Electroacoustic Composition. Available modules of study range from 
Digital Lutherie, Experimental Sound Synthesis, and Interface Design to 
Sound Ecology and Digital Ethics. In addition, a new space for the 
conception, experimentation and realisation of artistic projects 
(“Latent Space” – Space for Artistic Research and Design in Music and 
AI) is being created.

The application period for the upcoming winter semester is March 1, 2023
