MUSC 222: Composing for Ad Hoc Ensemble

In this composition course, we will create music for ourselves to perform. The members of the class constitute the Ad Hoc Ensemble; we will begin by writing small studies for individual instruments or voices in this group, and methodically build to composing for the entire ensemble. We will focus on idiomatic instrumental writing and orchestration, and will explore both traditional and experimental approaches to notation.  Prerequisite: Music 110 or instructor permission
3 credits; ARP; Not offered 2021-2022
