Australian Works Analysed in this Kit

Same steps (2007) by Damien Ricketson

Product details

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 analysis.
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.

Contents note: Analysis book (manual for the classroom teacher) -- CD 1: performances by Ensemble Offspring -- CD 2: scores and student composition tasks - Scores: The mountain, by Chris Larkin -- Deep fish, by Owen Salome -- Subconcious, by Bhuripat Jittivuthikarn -- Impetus, by Huw Belling -- Same steps, by Damien Ricketson -- Student worksheets.
