Operating as a professional musician requires a detailed working knowledge of a range of specific performance contexts and of the impact that these contexts can have on the way musicians prepare for and navigate performance outcomes. For example, performing in a recording studio, on stage, or for live radio or television all employ distinct approaches and specific workflows. This course offers students a chance to work with music staff to identify and model an appropriate context to situate their ensemble project, giving them the opportunity to develop industry specific knowledge and experience, while continuing to build the practical and interpersonal skills essential for a career in music.
This course further develops the skills acquired through completion of MUI2003 by requiring students to work both independently and collaboratively on a project. Under the guidance of teaching staff, students will identify a relevant industry specific performance outcome, and design and develop an ensemble project that explores music performance in that specific context. Students must not only perform in the ensemble, but co-ordinate projects, be directed by fellow students and staff, identify key resources to support individual and project development, and critically reflect upon all relevant processes and outcomes.
