DMS8012 : Advanced Creative Digital Practice: Live Electronic Performance
- Offered for Year: 2018/19
- Module Leader(s): Professor John Bowers
- Owning School: Arts & Cultures
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||20|
To address and familiarise the student with the main principles behind a range of live electronic music applications in a context of creative practice.
To share staff's research-based expertise.
Outline Of Syllabus
Students are introduced to the basic operational techniques of live electronic music applications through lecture-workshops. They then carry out a series of set tasks to familiarise themselves with each application. In consultation with the Module Leader they then decide upon appropriate projects to be realised using these applications. During the academic year there will be one or two visiting artsists/composers who use similar live electronic applications in their own practice. Students have the opportunity to work individually with these visitors. Final assessment will be based upon the successful realisation of the designated project.
