THIS COURSE IS A ***REQUIRED*** COURSE FOR CCS MUSIC COMPOSITION MAJORS, WHO MUST ENROLL IN AT LEAST ONE UNIT'S CREDIT.
AVAILABLE TO OTHER UNDERGRADUATES STUDYING COMPOSITION ON A SPACE-AVAILABLE BASIS.
In the first analysis, the course concerns itself with READING.
That is, it provides an opportunity to try out your music with real musicians and conductor (if desired) in a studio setting.
Just occasionally, when things work well, the result can be an adequate recorded performance, invaluable for graduate school applications, competitions, and for personal archiving. Creative Studies funding is annually set aside to
rent the studio and so that we may hire capable musicians in the orbit of the university for these readings.
This year we continue in the UCSB Sound Recording facility, second floor, Kerr Hall, thanks to the good offices of the staff of Instructional Development. Participants should bring take-away flash media with them to each class session, or follow instructions on receiving their files in a dropbox format.
Recording services will only be contracted for those CCS and L&S undergraduate music majors who *officially enroll* and who *attend class regularly.* CCS Music Majors are REQUIRED to enroll in the class for at least one unit, and may only be excused with the permission of the faculty advisor.
Sessions are scheduled from 12pm to 3:00 PM beginning Wednesday, January 9th and ending Wednesday March 13th. Each session must be completed in the time allotted, with no run-over.
Come prepared to the first class, "Everlasting Gobstopper," on 9 January with the following: *solo piano pieces. We'll record as many as we can. If possible drop off your piano pieces to Jeremy or Leslie in advance of the first class meeting.
SESSION ONE is partly a WORKING session!
*a list of pieces you would like to have recorded, arranged in priority order. Include full instrumentation and an accurate duration. It is highly recommended that you place finished works at the top and
that works-in-progress should be a lesser priority. We already need percussion lists, if applicable!
*performance materials if available. The sooner we have them, them, the
better your recording will be. We need one copy of your score and all the parts.
Have another copy of the score and parts available at the session in case of emergency.
ADVANCE PARTS MAY NOT BE EMAILED TO JEREMY HALADYNA, faculty coordinator! He may, however, provide player emails to which part files may be directed when circumstances so permit.
