Great work on the Bach harmonizations!!! Here is a rundown of our schedule for the first Preludes Project.
- Over the week, look over the remaining pieces in the score packet I handed out yesterday. We will cover a few if we have time.
- Select your model(s). Minimum of 2 pieces for the composition majors, min. 1 piece for the non-composition majors. Maximum of 3 pieces for everybody.
- Be prepared to present your model(s) for the class. Discuss anything you found intriguing about the piece: form, harmony, melodic/motivic development, texture, etc. Describe what your "point of departure" will be for your own piece.
We will coach each other's pieces together, providing constructive feedback for potential revisions. Please email or drop off in my mailbox by NOON, so I can make copies
We will cover questions of notational and clarity together.
Preludes, Part I Due
We will play through the final, beautiful preludes, and provide some final comments and feedback on the whole composing process.
