MUS 325 - Composition Seminar
4 credits (Spring)
A course for students who wish to develop their skills and possibly prepare for graduate study or professional work as composers. In addition to composition assignments, students will engage in thorough analysis of important works, discussions of compositional aesthetics, and explorations on a broad range of professional topics, including career options, performance opportunities, grant-writing, and commissions.
During Spring 2014 this course will be taught as “Collaborative Vocal Composition.” Under the supervision of professors John Rommereim, Lee Running, and Dean Bakopoulos, aspiring writers, artists, and composers will be brought together to create collaborative works. Scheduled at the same time as ENG 385 Fiction Seminar and ART 320 Site Specific, the three classes will meet in the same room for many of the sessions, and at other times, the composers, writers, and artists will meet separately. The course will culminate in a public performance and an exhibition toward the end of the semester
