MUSICS began in 2006. At that time, Faculty of Cultural Studies was a Language and Literature Program. At first, several students who were music fans gathered in front of Faculty of Cultural Studies building to share knowledge about music, experience, and hobby. In that association, there was a problem about establishment of small groups of jazz, rock, pop. The problem continued until MUSICS was established in 2009.
Later, MUSICS actively organized events like kustik in wifizone, which was held in the Faculty of Cultural Studies’ hall. However, after the development, some MUSICS’ activities became passive. MUSICS just followed competitions held by Universitas Brawijaya or public. Although being passive in events organizing, MUSICS can contribute some achievements for Faculty of Cultural Studies. One of them was getting the third place on Festival Jazz Kharisma and competitions between faculties.
After being passive in some years, MUSICS started to try organizing some events. One of them is Musicoustic, which is also supported by Dean. Now, MUSICS develops into independent and innovative student activity unit. MUSICS provides services like lending sound system, music equipment and soundmen.
