Wednesday 23 January 2013

Lunch provided

Coombehurst StudioKingston University, Kingston Hill

The aim of this research day is to shine a spotlight on the practice of evaluating composition within an academic environment. We will be presenting a panel with anonymously presented composition to promote discussion about various approaches to the evaluation of composition under different circumstances, and how this might impact on evaluation and assessment. In addition we will be asking:

What is the role of institutional culture?

Are there common approaches/aspects to the evaluation of composition or are we just idiosyncratic reviewers?

Where are the areas of agreement and disagreement?

In what way does the purpose of the review (teaching, selection) impact on the evaluation style?

Participants include Cellist Anton Lukoszevieze who will be performing some of the compositions and Chris Fox.

The event will end with a short concert by Anton Lukoszevieze.
