CART12004 - Music Production 4: Creative Songwriting and Production

General Information

Unit Synopsis

You will build upon your expanding knowledge of songwriting, continue to rehearse, record, and perform in ensembles, and attend classes in the technical aspects of stage. In the songwriting classes you explore a genre-agnostic view of practical song production methods from professional practice, addressing the four Ps of creative production: person, process, product and place. You will consider songwriting collaboration, copyright, creativity, evaluation and analysis, emulation, and flow for songwriting. You will examine processes of recording and public performance of your own songs. You will also undertake a class in the technical aspects of theatre production such as lighting and sound.
