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.
