EPAS, a one-year postgraduate in the creative potential of sound both of itself and as part of a multi media practice, is organized by The School of Arts (Gent), NFA (Amsterdam) and ifs (Cologne). As a partner of the EPAS Consortium we are glad to communicate that the first 9 EPAS-applicants have been accepted. There are still some places open to participate in the EPAS course, so we are launching a second call now! Applications are open until August 15th.
Although academic studies do explore the theoretical and conceptual sides of audio production, sound is generally considered a technical rather than an aesthetic subject.
EPAS, a postgraduate with an international certificate as outcome, aims to address this imbalance through an integration of practice and theory continuously fed by critical and conceptual thinking. It will teach sound as a discipline in itself, as well as in relation to screen production, performance and other arts and media.
