This subject provides a capstone for the undergraduate composition sequence. Students bring together the skills acquired across the preceding semesters in a folio of original music (scores and recordings) including works for large ensembles, and for electronic media. Assessment also includes a concert presentation of their music in collaboration with their peers.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
- demonstrate advanced development of individual musical ideas and working methods;
- communicate with performers through elegantly presented music notation;
- apply new ideas to the creation of musical works through practice and experiment;
- write idiomatically and creatively for large ensembles;
- use electronic music hardware and software fluently and creatively;
- work collaboratively with performers and peers on the curation and presentation of their music;
- critique and respond creatively to recent developments in musical composition, both aesthetic and technical;
- contextualise their own compositional practice through awareness of contemporary music repertoire.
On completion of this subject students should have developed:
- the ability to think laterally in relation to concepts and problem-solving;
- the ability to communicate in an abstract medium;
