Anti-requisite(s): 50842 Electro-acoustic Composition


In this subject students specialising in music and sound composition develop and complete a major original project through all stages. This directed project allows the composer/sound designer to demonstrate their technical skills and creative expertise in computer/electronic, electroacoustic, art music composition and performance, multimedia or interactive sonic performance, with a view to establishing their graduation portfolio and professional dissemination. The subject caters to different creative approaches and projects may be individually or collaboratively produced, but should build on previous learning completed in the major. Students are guided in project management, collaboration processes, research techniques, critical reflection and documentation, and the technical, aesthetic and structural development of the work. Style, genre and medium are intentionally extremely flexible to promote experimentation, creative thinking, innovative mixed-modality, and a scope of performative or interactive works. In addition to producing a substantive creative work, students hone their presentation and professional delivery skills through work-in-progress showings and a final public outcome.
