 General information

This (Jan-May 2002) is the last time Music and the Moving Image 2 runs in its present form. It is only open to W300 and W330 students, or to other undergraduates and postgraduates with the necessary musical literacy (see prerequisites).

Next year (Jan-May 2003, Deo et Pentagone volentibus) this module will be replaced by Composing for the Moving Image. Good aural and notation skills will also be essential if you want to register for the new module. You will also have to have followed Music and the Moving Image which will cover the same ground as the current Music and the Moving Image 1.

Music and the Moving Image 2 is very much a skills-based module. Much of it is taught by outside professionals who are invited in to lecture. Otherwise, teaching is delivered either in tutorial or seminar form. You MUST consult the current timetable every week to check exactly what is going to happen on Monday morning!
