Electronic Music Unit (EMU)

Director: Stephen Whittington
Coordinator: Christian Haines

The Electronic Music Unit (EMU) is the hub of music technology, sound production, sonic arts and electronic music at the University of Adelaide’s North Terrace Campus. Housed on the 4th and 5th fl oors of the Schulz Building, EMU enjoys stunning daytime and night-time views of both North Adelaide and the CBD, and is only a 5-minute walk from the Rundle Mall and centralised transport to the city.

The Elder Conservatorium has been offering courses in studio production, electronic music and music technology for more than 40 years, and EMU is the oldest established electronic music studio in Australia. Conscious of the need to remain at the forefront of technological developments, EMU provides secure 24/7 access to a range of specialised facilities that include production studios, recording rooms, digital audio laboratories, interactive spaces and student amenities.

Being at the Elder Conservatorium and the University of Adelaide students are part of the largest community of musicians in South Australia including jazz, classical and commercial musicians. Further, the university is host to a number of touring local, national and international artists and bands. EMU works closely with the broader university community to provide opportunities and experience for our students in other areas such as media collaboriation and research.
