MUSC4705 Performance Laboratory D (Music Creative Practice) is the fourth and final Performance Laboratory course for your Music Creative Practice major. You will consolidate the milestones achieved in earlier Performance Lab courses through the advancement of your technical, creative, interpretive and curatorial skills. The course focuses on the performative, creative and cultural elements of music making to augment your individual and collective performance experience and expertise. In addition, you will critically examine the nature of performance and the varied ways different kinds of musicians and artists collaborate to create innovative, cutting-edge performance formats reflective of the 21st century’s cultural milieu. Throughout the course, you will work on devising, developing and realising a creative individual or collaborative project of 30 minutes in length (20 minutes for composers), which will be presented in a public performance event in Term 3. You will also extend your experience of ensemble music making by participating and performing in an approved ensemble or chamber-music group under the guidance of an ensemble director or chamber music coach.

Note: This is a 12 UOC course. You will enrol in 4 UOC in each of three successive terms with a result reported by a single grade at the end of the third 4 UOC course.
