Assessment method

This course is aimed at both high-level creators interested in composition, production and musical analysis, and those wishing to develop tools for other content, including composers, performers and analysts. Guided by your supervisor, you'll work through a series of structured elements, with your final submission being either: a dissertation between 30,000 and 40,000 words on your registered topic, alongside a comprehensive resource list (including scores, analyses, articles, books and concert ephemera, internet and audio-visual resources). Candidates in musicology, ethnomusicology or analysis will normally follow this route, but it is not exclusively limited to these subjects; or a portfolio of compositions for any instrument, voice, ensemble, audio media or multimedia, with an accompanying critical commentary. The commentary will draw out the research embedded in the practice, discussing aspects of the compositional processes and situating the work in a research context; or a portfolio of performance projects, fully documented through video/audio recordings, and submitted alongside a crticial commentary. The commentary will draw out the research embedded in the practice, discussing aspects of the performance processes and situating the work in a research context.
