This unit of study provides students support to plan and create a major work at the culmination of completing previous principle study units, Contemporary Music Practice 1, 2, 3 and 4. A process of music composition, performance and recording will be supported by ongoing peer, instructor and industry feedback plus written critical self-reflection. Students will be asked to consider, justify and situate their practice and production of music within both broad and specific contexts. At the conclusion of this unit, students will have developed a body of work (approximately 15-20 minutes of music) to further refine and present to audiences in the following unit, Contemporary Music Practice 6.
