1646.20 - Independent Work II - Music

Course number
Independent Work II - Music
It is a condition for participation that the student is enrolled on the Diploma in Art.
Students learn to work critically with their own music and to develop their own style of composition.
This course is a continuation of Independent Work I – Music. As with the previous course, work will focus on students’ own works composed for the course. The main emphasis will be on close listening, analysis and critical examination of own works considering how composition, form and arrangement correlate with the student’s artistic intentions. Students will also be required to read relevant theory, which provides a broader artistic, philosophical and social context for their own works.
Learning and teaching approaches
Teaching spans 3 hours a week over one semester. The approach used is master classes where students’ own works are discussed and developed through group work and one-to-one sessions.
Learning outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course can demonstrate ability to: - explain their own method, - explain their own music-making with regards to style, form and genre of music - assess the artistic strengths and weaknesses of their own works, - demonstrate examples of how their own music making has developed (produce portfolio).
Assessment method
Portfolio submitted at the end of the course.
Marking scale
Relevant materials are circulated at the start of the course. For examination, students shall submit the material examined during the course. The volume of this material must be equivalent to the provisions for BA-level courses at the Faculty of Faroese Language and Literature.
