Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


When teaching scoring for computer animation, there is a tendency to emphasis the technological tools rather than the integration of visual skills and musical skills. A profile of the professional studies – Creative Multi-Media music project at the Hong Kong Institute of Education illustrates a pedagogical approach that associates the visual image with a storyboard as a stimulus to the student's compositional skills. This approach can enhance the student's ability of coordinating the visual brain and the musical brain in this project. The underlying concepts and strategies of this approach, including course design and assessment, will be presented as well as examples drawn from the portfolio of student work. Copyright © 2004 ATMI.
