About the programme

Sound Art & Sonic Arts study module (SAMA) examines sound as a wide-ranging form of contemporary art. The artistic practices and contexts of sound art stem from the fields of music, sound design, visual arts and performing arts.

With its diverse areas of expertise, The University of the Arts offers an excellent environment as well as the necessary facilities for an interdisciplinary approach to Sound Art and Sonic Arts. SAMA is coordinated by the Uniarts Helsinki Open Campus, and planned jointly by Time and Space Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts, the Masters’ Program of Sound at Theatre Academy Helsinki and the Department of Music & Technology at the Sibelius Academy.

Teachers

During the academic year SAMA will be offering courses, workshops and seminars held by international and Finnish sound artists. The language of teaching is English.
