Concepts of Music Through Composition 1 - CMPN1331

Year - 2020

The rationale behind this unit of study is to explore fundamental concepts of music as related to build upon Concepts of Music through Composition 1 where fundamental concepts of music are explored via the medium of a portfolio of compositions. Musical compositions may be completed via various means: musical notation, improvisation, recorded audio and their combinations. It also allows for students to curate an individual creative project and be supported via a scaffolded process. This unit is the first pathway for students interested in exploring such issues in the Creative Music program as part of the Bachelor of Music.
