Material and formats Entrance exam

  1. You must make a technical exposition of your material. The exposition can last no more than 10 minutes. The purpose of the exposition is to demonstrate your technical approach in working with sound. The exposition must therefore give a presentation of a wide range of the techniques you use and should not focus on a single technical aspect of your production. You choose which techniques you want to focus on. The presentation must be made on a computer or the instrument for which the work is intended.
  2. The technical exposition will be followed by a thorough conversation about the material you have submitted. Focus will be on the artistic ideas behind the production, including sources of inspiration, target group and potential. The conversation will last no more than 10 minutes.

You must bring your own computer or instrument for the presentation. Mixer and speakers will be available.

 

AFTER THE EXAMINATION

After the conversation you will receive one overall mark for your performance and the submitted material. The mark will reflect the degree to which you are considered ready to achieve the programme learning goals.
