Awarded MMus in Musicology by Edinburgh University

Clara Galea recently completed with distinction the Master in Musicology course at the University of Edinburgh. Her studies were conducted with leading researchers and lecturers in the field, including Prof. Peter Nelson, Dr Benedict Taylor, Dr Noel O’Regan and Dr Elaine Kelly.

For her final dissertation, supervised by Prof. Nelson, Galea focused on soundscape composition, a subcategory of electroacoustic music that brings together music, culture and the environment. The final part of her research consisted of an analytical study of two works by two soundscape composers – Hildegard Westerkamp’s Beneath the Forest Floor (1992) and Cathy Lane’s Tweed (2013).

Galea holds a first degree in music from Edinburgh Napier University and an ABRSM diploma in performance. She also has extensive experiences as a chamber and orchestral flautist.

In her final year in Edinburgh, Galea was a member of the Edinburgh University Symphony Orchestra, and a choral scholar at St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church.

Galea’s studies at the University of Edinburgh were funded by the Maltese government through a bursary awarded under the Malta Arts Scholarship scheme.
