Designed in the spirit of conceptualising new trajectories of creative music, this option offers an integrated approach to performance and composition and/or improvisation. This advanced programme represents a singular option for candidates on the path of evolution and refinement of their personal artistic development.
The Performer-Composer option is open to students who already have a strong command of their instrument as well as composition and/or improvisation.
The emphasis is on the development of each student's own technique, including original improvisation systems, methods of notation, or new techniques and syntheses - for example the use of mix-media etc. Students in this programme perform their own creations, in a solo or ensemble performance context.
