Music Discovery Day

Date: 12-Jun-2019

Time: 09:45 – 14:40

Location: Goldsmiths, University of London

Information & benefits of attending this event: Over the course of the day you experience two taster lectures engaging you in contemporary, critical debate within Computing, tour the college to see where our students study and socialise, and learn about student life and wellbeing at Goldsmiths. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet some of our current students on your course of interest and hear first-hand about their experiences selecting a subject and starting a course at university.

Session One: Why study Musical Performance at University?

You will explore why studying Musical Performance matters in the context of university studies? You will look at different ways of understandingwhat Musical Performance is all about, and how these affect our identities, as musicians, and our approaches to music.

Session Two: Functions of Music in Film

In this session, you will investigate how music can be used to support the narrative and dramatic development in films. Excerpts from feature films will be used to show how different aspects of this craft are put into practice. Please note: This is an introduction to BMus Music, the undergraduate degree that covers a wide range of genres, from Western Art Music and Jazz, to music for moving image and World Music. It does not, however, cover the variety of styles generally covered by the term 'Popular Music'. There is no need to bring a musical instrument.
