This subject follows on from Applied Aural Musicianship 3. It develops advanced musical hearing, focusing on atonal and non-triadic materials, and the intersection between acoustic and synthetic sound types. Students determine their own pathways, concentrating on skills most relevant to their individual needs and interests. Learning activities include specialized keyboard lab sessions, lectures, tutorial workshops, and varied online experiences through which students will be supported in developing their overall aural abilities.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
- read and sing complex melodies, countermelodies, arpeggiation of chord progressions, and bass lines using a variety of naming systems and solmizations;
- read and perform complex rhythmic patterns, including various compound times and changing meters, tuplets, and unusual subdivisions using both non-pitched means and rhythm solmization;
- memorize, transcribe, and analyze melodies, rhythms, chord progressions, countermelodies and basslines in a variety of contexts including modal and alternative tonalities;
- analyse sophisticated musical and sonic properties such as tuning, detailed harmonic functions and timbral characteristics.
