Screen Music

Unit code: 10344

Description: This unit transgresses from contemporary songwriting and production to focus on another potentially lucrative aspect of contemporary composition, media composition. The unit is less experimental in nature than Synthesis and Sampling, returning to a more analytical and systematic approach. It focuses on the analytical study of key exponents and significant developments in screen media across differing screen genres. The student explores concepts and techniques in composition and synchronisation in differing commercial contexts. They research and utilise applicable music technologies and apply these in composition, production and delivery. The unit is designed to complement Arranging and Orchestration and is designed to be the last phase of development before an independent project.
