Long noted for its important contributions to contemporary musical innovation, the institute's Composition Program allows each student to develop his or her own artistic voice through the exploration and study of a broad range of theories, techniques and creative tools. The Program offers a broad array of distinctive courses, exposure to the work of prominent guest composers, and continuous assessment and critique of each student's work as it develops. All students are required to compile a portfolio of professional quality by the end of their residencies.
Collection note: The digital collection begins with the work of students who graduated in Spring 2013. The work of some students is not included because the final format did not fit the criteria for the digital collection. For example, students who submitted only sound recordings are not included here. For inquiries of the work of specific students please contact Brena Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org
