PS-640 continues the learning that began in PS-540 Masters Performance Forum: Global Jazz. In this performance workshop, students continue to learn interdisciplinary approaches to music-making. They explore various concepts of aesthetics, with a focus on developing their own aesthetic philosophy as they critique each other. The course provides a platform for students in the contemporary performance master’s program to launch the execution phase of their culminating experience project. The course also provides a framework for project management, including planned milestones, visiting artists, and material strategies to incorporate students’ projects into tangible career opportunities. Additionally, students complete weekly directed studies with artists-in-residence, focusing especially on their own artistic projects.
