Fani Konstantinidou | Univrsity of Amsterdam | The Making of Composers | Supervisor: Viktoria Tkaczyck | 2013-2017
This artistic research project aims at developing new teaching methods in contemporary and electroacoustic music composition. It will start from a comparative analysis of undergraduate/postgraduate study programs at music conservatories in the Netherlands, Greece, and Great Britain. Emphasis will be given to the cultural-historical backgrounds of teaching traditions as well as to the different educational policies of the three countries. Main points of interest are the dominance of certain musical genres and compositional styles, the selection of students and (teaching) composers, the use of software composing programs, and the selection of instruments/sounds to be used. As a composer, I will be teaching at conservatories of each country in order to develop new educational tools.
