PS-622 continues the learning that began in PS-619 Masters Performance Forum: Production. In this seminar and performance-based course, students learn interdisciplinary approaches to music-making and develop practical materials useful for a profession as a performer. Students also explore various concepts of aesthetics, with a focus on developing their own aesthetic philosophy and artistic identity. Students perform and analyze their own music projects; they learn to evaluate and critique each other; and they learn to respond to feedback and advice. Students collaborate with classmates, guest lecturers and visiting artists from a variety of diverse styles and backgrounds: performers, producers and educators, among others. They synthesize rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic vocabulary from a variety of musical styles.
