Introduction to Composition: Explorations in Musical Time and Space


Exploration, in seminar/workshop format, of sound and music, expressed through projects involving instruments, voices, and intermedia. Consideration of the current field will provide concrete examples, ranging widely across 'kinds of music.' Investigations will touch on music theory and acoustics, orchestration, music technology and analysis. Primary emphasis on composing: creative discovery of expressive possibilities and compositional value of craft. Intended for students who may have written songs or composed, and who would like to continue their explorations.
