Composition Audition Requirements

 

All applicants to the Bachelor of Music (Composition), and Bachelor of Music – Creative Music and Digital Music and Media programs must submit a portfolio of three creative works via our online submission form on our website.

Online portfolios to these areas of study will be assessed by a panel drawn from staff in the Composition and Music Technology division. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview.

Composition Portfolio

Three original compositions of varied style or media. For example: solo, chamber, choral, orchestral, electroacoustic, mixed-media, etc.

  • Scores: At least two of the works must be presented in a notated form.
  • Recordings: At least two of the works must have complimentary audio (or video) recordings.

Some examples of how your portfolio may look:

  1. Eg 1. Work 1: score and recording | Work 2: score and recording | Work 3: score and recording
  2. Eg 2. Work 1: score and  recording | Work 2: score and  recording | Work 3: audio/video only (i.e. non-notated music, score not relevant)
  3. Eg 3. Work 1: score and recording | Work 2: score and recording | Work 3: score only (i.e. not yet recorded, conceptual work, etc.)

 

Composition portfolios will be destroyed after the interview period – there will not be an opportunity to collect them.
