Electronic Music Studio (EMS) @DMARC

Electronic Music Studio (EMS)

The EMS (Electronic Music Studio) has long been at the very heart of both electronic and electro-acoustic music making. In the early days, it was academic institutions (and national radio broadcasters - WDR (Germany), RAI (Italy) and Radio France that first helped establish its discourse.

The production and research within Electronic Music at the University of Limerick’s Department of Computer Science & Information Systems has a 25-year tradition of education, research and production in the fields of electroacoustic music and computer music. Students can access well-equipped studios, the most extensive voltage-controlled analogue studio currently in operation in Ireland and the UK. The ULEMS represents Ireland in the ICMC (International Computer Music Conference) and has partnerships with the CMC (Contemporary Music Center)

The development of the CSIS EMS as both a place of learning and research. A place where students and composers alike can explore electronic music making in a more fluid and hands on environment.

EMS Launch - Friday April 12th 2024 - Details soon!
