Contemporary Music Practice 5 - MUSC3405

Year - 2020

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. Students will analyse a series of 'concept albums' as they work to write, perform and produce a collection of tracks bound by an overarching aesthetic concept. This process 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 cohesive body of work (approximately 20-30 minutes of music).

1 x 2hr workshop per week

Listening log 20%; Pitch and schedule 20%; Concept album 60%.
