EVDIV 517 — Scoring to Picture
This course introduces students to the fundamental skills for composing and producing music for visual media. Students examine the world of film music from a variety of viewpoints, from the dramatic and psychological to the stylistic and structural. Topics include spotting to picture, creating a musical composition based on image and story, and how to set up a scoring project in your Digital Audio Workstation. Over the course of the semester students compose cues to a diverse spectrum of media, from web episodes, to short narrative, to documentary, to feature film. The final project involves scoring and recording the music to a longer-form excerpt, with the participation of one or more live players. A basic knowledge of music technology and Logic Studio is required. Placement interview required.
