Composition Practice 3 - CMPN5123

Year - 2018

This unit is the capstone unit for the M.Mus.Studies (Compostion) degree. Students will present a folio of new work developed over the course of a semester. The works will follow the specific compositional techniques and genre in which the student chooses to focus (such as choral, vocal, orchestral, chamber, electroacoustic, mixed media or film music) and the folio of works will also be presented in digital or performance mode. The final folio of work will also become an exemplar of the students' work that will be suitable for assessment as a sample of compositional style for future professional work opportunities.

Classes
1 x 1.5hr seminar per week - Composition Practice Class; 1 x 60 minute one to one lesson per week for 12 weeks per semester

Assessment
Composition portfolio incorporating: 1 or more completed composition(s), presented in either a Capstone performance concert or publicly available digital portfolio, with digital documentation (75%); Technical Tasks (25%).
