Application and Evaluation of Supporting Material
Regardless of the institution you apply to, you will need to provide the following documents in English and upload them to the joint web platform of the programme!
1) Proposal for the Masters Degree Project (Independent Project). The MDP (IP) proposal is the most important element of your application, and should relate to at least some of the key features of the CoPeCo programme: collaborative work, cross-disciplinary interaction, new technologies, improvisation and arts management.2) Portfolio
NB! Printed scores must be sent in a binder. Accepted file formats for electronic submissions: PDF, mp3, mp4. Accepted media formats: CD, DVD, USB stick. Please always check local regulations as some institutions may require that you upload all your material online.
3) Signed declaration confirming that you are the author of the compositions and recordings submitted in the portfolio. 4) Motivation letter outlining your aims and goals for the CoPeCo programme.
5) CV with a photo and details of your artistic and professional experience.
A panel of experts at your chosen institution will evaluate your proposal and portfolio and, if your application is successful, will invite you to attend an audition, the second and final stage of the application process. Please note that the uploaded material will also be visible for the admission panels of the other CoPeCo institutions!
Auditions will take place in each of the four institutions. The auditions will be recorded, and if there are more successful applicants than study places the recordings will be evaluated by a joint international panel that will establish a final general ranking list for each category (composers, performers and composers/performers).
At the audition the panel will assess your artistic and technical skills, your stage presence and your interpersonal and interaction skills. You will be asked to present your work (20 minutes maximum): instrumental or vocal performance of a contemporary music programme of your choice (including your own pieces) and/or a presentation of the material you sent in your portfolio. Please bring your own accompanist if you need one.
The audition will also include an improvisation test (either individual or group improvisation) and an interview, where you may be asked to discuss your proposal for the Masters Degree Project (Independent Project).
