Subject Description
This capstone music subject allows students to complete a sustained creative project in any area of music or digital audio production that encapsulates the creative, technical and conceptual knowledge acquired throughout their program of study. In consultation with the lecturer/supervisor, students will devise their own creative project, which draws on the creative and technical skills acquired either through the music studio stream or in the audio production stream, or on some combination of the two, supported by a critical, reflective framework that engages with current music debates and identifies their position as a contemporary musician, sound or audiovisual artist. This subject is the culmination of the Music program, and requires students to draw upon the skills they have gained throughout the BCA, as well as contributing to the development of their peers’ work. The outcomes will be presented in a public concert or exhibition environment as appropriate.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of creative practice in their chosen area: composition and performance, sound design, audio-visual work, or some hybrid form
2. Work independently to research, construct and refine a large creative project
3. Respond creatively to the challenges of contemporary music practice, sound design or audio-visual work, according to the demands of a large creative project
4. Work effectively as members of a creative team, taking responsibility for project outcomes and using an informed critical vocabulary to discuss music and effectively articulate individual creative aims and processes
5. Reflect on their position as a creative practitioner in local, national and international contexts

Textbook Information
Students will be advised of recommended texts at the commencement of session.
