Criteria for creation

Seminar ListAbstract • PreparationMain Text


MA group meeting
Judging quality in creative activities

The role of personal opinion (of student/teacher)
The role of the audience/academic judgement (how to balance the different opinions)
Importance of criteria - what are they and how should they be established - relevance of the first criteria
The uncomfortable balance between expression and academic judgement
The purpose of music - to enjoy or to 'learn'?
Inspiration and technique - how far can you get with either
The role of method - how personal are these - can someone use someone else's method. 
Is tonality a method?  Is serialism a method?  Serialism has a very distinct effect on the sound of the result - 
does this make the method better/worse/more or less effective?
