Music Technology - annotated sequence exemplars level 3 US23730

Operate music sequencing, editing, and music notation application(s)

People credited with this unit standard are able to: operate music sequencing and editing application(s) for a music or performing arts situation; and operate music notation application(s).

Outcome 1

Operate music sequencing and editing application(s) for a music or performing arts situation.

Range

a sequence of four or more instruments and approximately 70 bars in length.

Achieved

Commentary Student response

This exemplar was created using logic audio pro.

This exemplar demonstrates a student-assembled 5 part 70 + bars sequence with tempo change and sonic clarity and depth.

This exemplar meets Achievement criteria as the regions have appropriate timbres that are sonically clear. The sense of feel is somewhat ‘mechanical’ having correct pitch/duration/placement which could be improved with more crafted application of ‘humanised’ quantise feel/bends/articulation or a more live feel (as opposed to a “processed” feel that is currently present).

There is an appropriate degree of depth to the sonic clarity that contributes to the integrity of the sequence. Improvements could be made to relative balance of mix effects/levels which could allow the exemplar to move into higher criteria.

Merit

Commentary Student response

This exemplar was created using logic audio pro.

This exemplar demonstrates a student-assembled 5 part 70 + bars sequence with tempo change and sonic clarity and depth.

The regions have well-chosen timbres that enhance the sonic clarity. The sense of feel is not yet fully demonstrated (keeping the exemplar in Merit criteria). However the correct pitch/duration/placement could be improved with clever application of ‘humanised’ quantise feel/bends/articulation for a live feel.

The depth and integrity of the sequence are enhanced by the choices of timbres and relative balance of mix effects and levels, including some well-crafted application facets of a live feel.

Excellence

Commentary Student response

This exemplar was created using logic audio pro.

This exemplar demonstrates a student-assembled 5 part 70 + bars sequence with tempo change and stylistic integrity.

The exemplar meets Excellence criteria as the regions are balanced with sonic clarity. Further there is an authentic sense of feel and depth that enhances the integrity of the sequence.
