The Creative Audiovisual Coding module prepares you for work in interactive media, such as game development, virtual reality, augmented reality, the web, mobile apps and other interactive platforms. The module introduces key techniques and technologies for creative audiovisual coding, ranging from sound synthesis to interface design and visual animation. The programme of learning is designed for students from arts and humanities backgrounds with no coding experience, and is delivered in practical workshops. The module is also a good preparation for the third year Sound for Interactive Media and Generative Arts and Musical Machine modules.
