Learning outcomes #
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Describe and apply the fundamental concepts of music computing including digital synthesis, algorithmic composition, and musical interface design.
- Demonstrate knowledge of design and performance issues around computer music interfaces.
- Critically examine computer music systems and laptop ensemble performances.
- Create a computer musical instrument, composition or interactive sound artwork and present it in concert.
- Demonstrate collaboration skills with a laptop ensemble through design feedback and critical self-reflection.
|1. understand & apply fundamental concepts in CM||incomplete or flawed application of fundamental concepts||adequate application of fundamental techniques||competent application of fundamental techniques||thorough application of fundamental techniques||innovative application of fundamental techniques|
|2. describe design & performance challenges in CM interfaces||incomplete or flawed description of performance challenges||adequate description of performance challenges, no potential solutions||competent description of performance challenges and potential solutions||thorough description of performance challenges and potential solutions||insightful description of performance challenges and potential solutions|
|3. critically analyse CM systems/ensemble performances (inc. self-reflection)||incomplete or flawed analysis of systems/ensemble performances||adequate analysis of systems/ensemble performances||competent analysis of systems/ensemble performances||thorough analysis of systems/ensemble performances, limited self-reflection||insightful analysis of systems/ensemble performances, including deep self-reflection|
|4. produce a CM instrument/composition and present it in concert||flawed/non-working concert performance||concert performance, major technical issues||competent concert performance, some technical issues/performance shortcomings||very competent concert performance, very minor technical issues/performance shortcomings||innovative and compelling concert performance|
|5. demonstrate collaboration skills & feedback within ensemble||no evidence of collaboration or feedback within ensemble||problematic collaboration, superficial feedback||competent collaboration, some critical feedback||thorough collaboration, useful/actionable feedback||strong collaboration, insightful feedback (making others better)|
