MUSC 430 Studio Composition III


The project-driven Studio Composition III explores writing for solo instruments, solo instruments with electronic accompaniment; and the final small chamber ensemble piece (instrumentation varies) with multimedia and audience participation. During the course of the semester, the students will be exposed to non-Western and Eastern European musical idioms, elements of common-practice tonality and extended chromatic tonality. The projects in the week 1-7 and 8-15 will involve working with the master-composers-in-residence at MFA Music Composition for the Screen. These composers-in-residence will bring to the class their most recent and current projects, keeping the students abreast with the latest developments in the music industry, as well as their unique perspective to the students’ class projects. The students will produce score and parts according to professional standards. All compositions are recorded; the best pieces are performed in a public concert at the end of the semester. The students assist production and recording of the pieces. This project-driven course explores writing for solo instruments, solo instruments with electronic accompaniment, and the final small chamber ensemble work with multi-media and audience participation. The students will work directly with the composers-in residence in the MFA Music Composition for the Screen program in order to understand current industry practice. Students will be expected to conform to such practice in the preparation of scores and parts. Selected compositions will be performed in a public concert late in the semester.
