Music and Sound for the Moving Image
Overview and specific guidance for composing music to moving images, with two lengthy assignments.
Music and Sound for the Moving Image can contribute to the BTEC Level 3 in Music (Certificate, Subsidiary Diploma and Diploma) as well as the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Music Technology. The use of film music in the classroom has become dramatically more prevalent as computers have become more powerful, allowing even a modest classroom computer to synchronize music and video using even some of the more affordable software packages. The nature of GCSE and A-Level specifications often means that these resources reside purely in the Key Stage 3 bracket but this BTEC unit allows learners to take advantage of them for this more sophisticated level of study.
