What's the Score
What's the Score?
The University of Aberdeen – in association with Aberdeen International Youth Festival has created 'What's the Score' - a weekend of free workshops giving young people age 12 – 18 an opportunity to get practical hands-on experience at composing music for moving image (TV or Film).
The sessions will be held at the University campus over two days (Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November, 2012). Participants will learn how to compose their own original pieces of music for a short animation of their choice, using state-of-the-art software, guided by a leading Glasgow School of Art academic. The resulting short music animations will be previewed at a special screening for family, friends and the public on the Sunday evening. They will also be previewed at our University Festival in May 2013, in a professional cinema.
The workshops will have wide appeal to young people who may be interested in how to create computer based music, or just want to learn more about composing music. They may be interested in pursuing a career in creating music for TV or film, or just have a general interest in how music is created for TV or Film. It also builds on the teaching credentials of the University and introduces young people to a new learning experience within a University. The huge benefit of these sessions is that they are open to anyone age 12 - 18 - even if they don't know how to read music and have never played an instrument.
