USSS supports undergraduate and postgraduate study in music technology, sound recording, computer music and electroacoustic music. At undergraduate level our studios are open to students taking modules in composition, sound recording and sound and moving image.

USSS is the centre for a diverse range of activity, including various flavours of electroacoustic composition, software and hardware development, audio-visual art and interactive instrumental work. USSS is committed to the performance of new music and theoretical research into the aesthetics and analysis of electroacoustic music. USSS comprises a 20 PC laboratory space, two single-user composition spaces and two recording studios (control room + live room). Two control rooms have multichannel monitoring.
