Subject Overview:

This subject extends and deepens the field of enquiry initiated in Cross Disciplinary Studies A and B of the Postgraduate Diploma in Performance Creation, or equivalent. It focuses upon the potential for interplay and dynamic dialogue between the various disciplines involved in the processes of performance creation. Seminars and practical/studio-based classes provide interaction with other discipline streams to develop communication and collaborative abilities with processes of artistic composition. The focus in this advanced subject will be on the place within performance of areas such as musical composition, visual art, sound design, filmic media and digital technology. The capacity of the student to work autonomously will be augmented through introduction to IT programs of basic sound and film editing processes.
