Studio Project (W3070)

30 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

This module is a combination of seminars and individual or small group supervision/tutorials for developing individual portfolio projects. Ensure that you complete reading and listening in time for each seminar, and build on this work by compiling your own bibliography and discography, relevant to your project. The module is delivered through a series of seminars, followed by tutorials to advise and assist on the development of your final project. The outcome of the module is an extended (five minute) studio composition either in the form of a sound file, interactive work using Max/MSP or Pure Data, or for example a soundtrack for games. The final portfolio should illuminate the relationship between the musical ideas, their development, and the studio techniques in your piece.
