The unit enables students to prepare a creative music technology folio and minor exegesis linked to the folio. Note: The folio must be different to that presented for examination in the unit ATS4938 Special project: Creative music technology part 1.

  1. undertake extensive creative projects in creative music technology that involve the research and synthesis of relevant techniques;
  2. plan and implement creative strategies that serve to develop particular skills and learning as negotiated with the allocated academic supervisor;
  3. develop a minor exegesis including the articulation of a research question and methodology.
