Applications open Monday, July 22, 2019, for the Music User Experience Design (MUXD) for the fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters. This is a collaborative experience exploring signal flow, connectivity, musical expression, user interface, and sound and art installation.

About the Creative Technologies Lab

The Creative Technologies Lab (CTL) is a place for us to innovate, create, and connect on a large scale inside our field of work and all adjacent mediums. 

The subtext to everything we do is to create connections between our internal Berklee communities (Berklee College of Music; Boston Conservatory at Berklee; Berklee's campus in Valencia, Spain; Berklee Online; PowerStation at BerkleeNYC; and the faculty, staff, administrative, and alumni communities) and professionals and industry partners outside our community who are doing important, innovative work that needs to be amplified. We make human connections between people across disparate communities through the projects we execute.
