Admissions are now open at Brown University for fully-funded Ph.D.’s in the
Music and Multimedia Composition program. We encourage applicants from a
wide range of diverse influences and methods to apply. Students in the
program will produce, analyze, and perform original works that may include
the use of electronic music, acoustic composition and sound in combination
with video, performance, installation and text. They will conduct advanced
inquiry into the cultural, theoretical, technical, and aesthetic issues
surrounding music and multimedia production in close collaboration with
faculty researchers strongly invested in real-time, interactive sonic and
visual media, sound art, instrument design and acoustic composition. In
addition to faculty mentorship, students can collaborate with a broad array
of visiting artists and professional performing ensembles presented on the
Brown University campus.

The graduate program in Music and Multimedia Composition offers an array of
resources unique to Brown. Students have access to the department’s
Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments (MEME) studios, and the
university’s Granoff Center for the Creative Arts. These specialized
research facilities house recording studios, electronics shops, project
studios, exhibition and performance spaces. Regular opportunities exist to
interface with the larger arts and digital media communities at Brown, at
the nearby Rhode Island School of Design, in Providence and the New England
region. Music and Multimedia Composition students also partake in the many
scholarly offerings of the Musicology and Ethnomusicology Ph.D. program,
with faculty specialties in technoculture, sound studies, copyright,
improvisation and timbre. A Brown doctoral degree in Music and Multimedia
Composition leads to a career in college and university teaching, or to a
position in applied research and creative work outside of higher education.

All PhD students receive full funding for 5 years, including costs for
tuition and health insurance, plus stipends for fellowships and teaching
assistantships. Online application is through the Brown University Graduate
School website: https://www.brown.edu/academics/gradschool/. The
application deadline is December 15th.

There will be two online Open House events for prospective students this
year, one on October 30th and one on November 20th. The events are for
visitors to learn more about the PhD program and will provide an overview
of its research, curriculum, production resources, and student support.
Faculty and current students will be available to discuss the program and
answer questions.

Director of Graduate Study.
