Professional Media Composition
Students will work exclusively on real-life projects. They will tackle a broad range of technical and artistic challenges, looking at rich and vibrant areas of creative practice including scoring for commercials, documentary, animation, games as well as feature films. They will place media music in context and will also study the history and development of the form from the early 20th century through to the present day. The prime purpose of the programme is to enable students to become effective and multi-skilled film, television or games composers, capable of meeting complex musical and technical challenges when composing for the media. In this fast-developing area of professional practice, the programme will offer substantial and sustained opportunity to engage with the research of others, stimulating interdisciplinary enquiry, furthering the student's knowledge and developing original solutions and insights into technical and creative problems.
Indicative modules: writing in styles; writing to a brief 1; writing to a brief 2; film music in practice: origins; music editing; an introduction to writing to picture; writing to picture: drama; film music in practice: the modern era; final major project (dissertation).
