  • Describe what you experienced and learned from designing a full-ensemble piece, including challenges you encountered.
  • If you'd like, acknowledge any individual in your group that you think went above and beyond in preparing for the concert.

Part 2: evaluation of the concert

  • Critically reflect on the final concert -- evaluate your group's piece as well as the concert as a whole.

Part 3: evaluation of the class

Please take your time to complete the official course evaluation (when it becomes available), as it serves as a valuable resource for the teaching staff. But to supplement this, provide your thoughts to the following questions:

  • How has your impression of a "laptop orchestra" changed since the beginning of the quarter?
  • In what areas (musical, technical, interface design, etc.) did you find yourself learning the most through this course?
  • Feel free to make additional comments on your overall course experience.

  • Email your writeup to all of the teaching staff {jieun5, spencer, kwerner} @ ccrma
