BSc (Hons) Music Technology: Music Production Degree Show

Music For Red Dead Redemption Cut (Video Game)

Show overview

In this project, students learnt by analysis and practice the creative processes of composing Music for Film in a series of workshops on Composition, Orchestration and Production of a film music track. The end result should be applied to a short film of around 6-10 minutes in length. A series of short cuts from feature films that do not depict a music score had be provided and, alternatively, students were also free to assemble their own choice of film excerpts. An individual discussion had been carried out between student and tutor to ensure that a minimum of music was composed and produced. 

The main focus on the composition of music for film embraced the analysis of different genres to build a reference repertoire. The students were able to apply all levels of knowledge developed so far (composition, MIDI arrangement, orchestration, live & studio recording techniques and music production) aside of adding their personal compositional styles to the finished product. The work began from the stages of looking through the film without music, to making notes of strategic points and pondering what kind of music would suit better a selected film. From that to the finished work a long path has been covered and the students had the chance of developing a methodical approach with a clear target in mind. Evidently, all music has been originally composed and no usage of third party materials would have been accepted.

This project is part of an Intermediate Level module (Applied Music Technology) and it has been offered specifically to Music Production students.
