A9801: Alternative Approaches to Music Composition in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
If you've ever tried composing music, you might be used to staring at a blank piece of staff paper, wondering what dots to write next. While this tried-and-true approach has lead to many masterpieces throughout the ages, it is often time-consuming. In this class, we will discuss alternative approaches to composing, from graphical notation to written instructions that are quick . Examples include Terry Riley's In C. Performance of works will take place in class and may include performance of an in-class composition (time permitting). Instruments are helpful but not necessary. Singing---or for that matter any other creative form of noise making---is perfectly acceptable.
