Cool Music for Large Ensembles grew out of a third-year assignment for the Bachelor of Music students in their subject “Arranging for Large Ensemble”. Students composed and arranged their original pieces for Orchestra, Big Band, Choir, Concert Band or String Orchestra. These pieces were workshopped by high school ensembles around Victoria, from Toorak to Gippsland to Ballarat. Students had the opportunity to make revisions, meet with the students, and in some cases form an ongoing relationship with the school to which they were assigned.

Eight compositions were chosen to feature in a collaborative, interdisciplinary publication. Recordings of the pieces were made at the Fairfield Campus, featuring staff and students as musicians and sound engineers. The artwork, text and design for the book were all completed by staff and students. The book will be ready for use in 2013. If you are curious about, or interested in being part of this second semester project, please email Dr Adam Starr at ua.ud1480963106e.cin1480963106hcety1480963106lopen1480963106ruobl1480963106em@rr1480963106atSma1480963106dA1480963106.
