<ul><li><p>MISKIN MUSIC - ASSIGNMENT BRIEF 2015/16 </p><p>Qualification: BTEC HNC in MUSIC 2015/16 </p><p>The project brief </p><p>This project focuses on the integration of a variety of disciplines that form the basis of modern music production, such as sequencing, audio recording, sampling, synthesis and associated compositional technique. You will understand sound production, create and control MIDI sequences, Be able to apply recording practice and technique to music creation, and be able to create a music composition using a software sequencing application. </p><p>Scenario A recording studio has asked you to produce a variety of multi-track recordings using a software sequencing application, and wants you to log and present the process, with technical detail, so as to act as a guide for future recording engineers at their studio. </p><p> Learning Outcomes </p><p>LO 1 Understand sound production within contemporary music making </p><p>1.1 Explain the architecture of Digital Audio Workstation 1.2 Explain music sequencing and available sound sources 1.3 Explain the fundamental processes and components of studio recording 1.4 Evaluate the planning and production process </p><p>LO 2 </p><p>Be able to create and control MIDI sequences using hardware and software </p><p>2.1 Create a sound palette using a variety of synthesisers and samplers 2.2 Create and edit a variety of MIDI sequences using different types of data input 2.3 Demonstrate real-time control of sound sources using hardware and software 2.4 Demonstrate effective computer skills in the creation of sequenced music </p><p>LO 3 </p><p>Be able to apply recording practice and technique to music creation </p><p>3.1 Plan and produce recordings of individual performers 3.2 Plan and produce recordings of ensembles 3.3 Plan and produce audio material suitable for sample patches 3.4 Demonstrate editing, mixing and mastering of recorded audio </p><p>LO 4 </p><p>Be able to create a music composition using a software sequencing application </p><p>4.1 Plan a music composition that utilises live and virtual sound sources 4.2 Create music that incorporates competent musical technique 4.3 Create music that incorporates competent production technique 4.4 Produce scores that communicate relevant musical ideas . </p><p>Learner declaration </p><p>I certify that the work submitted for this assignment is my own and research sources are fully acknowledged. </p><p>Student signature: Date: </p><p>BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) MUSIC Assignment title/reference: T3.3 Mixing And Mastering Unit: 36 Music Technology Assessor: Matt Power I.V: Andrew Pettitt Date issued: 18/04/16 Formative assessment: 20/05/16 Submission date: 10/06/16 </p></li><li><p>MISKIN MUSIC - ASSIGNMENT BRIEF 2015/16 </p><p>Qualification: BTEC HNC in MUSIC 2015/16 </p><p> This assignment gives you the opportunity to achieve the following DISTINCTION grades: </p><p>Grade Descriptor Indicative Characteristic/s </p><p>Contextualisation </p><p>D1 Use critical reflection to evaluate own work and justify valid conclusions </p><p>Self-criticism of approach has taken place and realistic improvements have been proposed against defined characteristics for success. </p><p>You must demonstrate critical reflection when justifying the techniques adopted for editing and mixing. </p><p>D2 Take responsibility for managing and organising activities </p><p>Autonomy/independence has been demonstrated and the importance of interdependence has been recognized and achieved. </p><p>You must be able to demonstrate the ability to work on your own and demonstrate how working with others is mutually beneficial when working in a studio environment. </p><p>D3 Demonstrate convergent / lateral / creative thinking </p><p>Problems have been solved and/or innovation and creative thought have been applied </p><p>You will have found solutions to a number of technical problems in the recording studio, and justified your chosen methods. </p><p> This assignment gives you the opportunity to achieve the following MERIT grades: </p><p>Grade Descriptor Indicative Characteristic/s </p><p>Contextualisation </p><p>M1 Identify and apply strategies to find appropriate solutions </p><p>Effective judgements have been made. </p><p>When considering the recording process you must use technical and acoustical theory when and where you feel it appropriate. </p><p>M2 Select / design and apply appropriate methods and techniques </p><p>The selection of methods has been justified </p><p>You must show that your mixing technique shows both creative and corrective elements, and is fully justified. </p><p>M3 Present and communicate appropriate findings </p><p>Communication has taken place in familiar and unfamiliar contexts. </p><p>You must show that you have been able to communicate with those whom you are recording, assessing their wants and requirements, reaching amicable conclusions and compromises where necessary. </p></li><li><p>MISKIN MUSIC - ASSIGNMENT BRIEF 2015/16 </p><p>Qualification: BTEC HNC in MUSIC 2015/16 </p><p>ASSIGNMENT BRIEF </p><p>The project brief </p><p>This project focuses on the integration of a variety of disciplines that form the basis of modern music production, such as sequencing, audio recording, sampling, synthesis and associated compositional technique.
