MUSC2404: Contemporary Music Practice 4

2024 unit information

In this unit of study, students will focus on three areas: generating effective lyrics, composing and recording instrumental tracks, and writing and recording toplines. In doing so they will build creative, technical and research skills. They will continue to build their ability to generate musical and lyrical material, and their familiarity with recording studios (both at the Con and home set-ups). They will also develop collaborative skills, through working together both in person and on line.
