Advanced Dramatic Orchestration and Recording Techniques
This course allows advanced senior film scoring students to move towards mastery in the areas of orchestration and conducting live ensembles to picture. Working with a studio orchestra, assignments allow students extensive experience orchestrating, composing to picture, and recording with an all-live ensemble. On alternate weeks, students will be the composer-conductor of a cue, or assist one of their fellow composers as music librarian and booth reader. This course is paired with both a music production and engineering class and an ensemble class that meet concurrently. A glimpse into this unique course can be found in this video.
