Stepping Stones is an education resource for senior secondary and tertiary music students. The kit is comprised of in-class and take-home activities including listening, performing, composing and analysis.
The first section is an investigation of the work, Same
Steps, by Australian composer Damien Ricketson. The analysis
focuses on the concept of the open-form in contemporary classical
composition and introduces students to many new musical devices
such as unconventional musical notation and the use of
microtones. Practical activities and further listening complement
The second section investigates the works of the four student finalists from the 2007 Sibelius Composer Competition. A series of related composition activities (provided on CD ROM) contain especially designed Sibelius tasks for students to use as a springboard for compositional creativity and to familiarise themselves with notation software. The World of Sibelius Demo Version is included in the kit.
The recordings are made by Ensemble Offspring, an ensemble dedicated to innovative music and one of the country's most active promoters of new Australian composition.
