Callaway Centre Research Seminar Series

The Conservatorium of Music is a vibrant centre for research in music and music education. A thriving community of scholars is engaged in exploring the frontiers of knowledge, working on a wide range of research projects with diverse outputs.

Our free weekly seminar series showcases presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

Shaun Fraser

The preparatory beat is the most important gesture a conductor can give - this single gesture conveys significant information including tempo, dynamics, style, and character, but does it effectively transfer to a readable cue?

Chris Milne

Transcriptions make up a significant proportion of the wind band repertoire, but there is little research on successful techniques in replicating a homogenous a cappella choral work in a heterogeneous wind band setting. This study aimed to identify some of the techniques utilised by three contemporary composers and their transcriptions of their own choral works for wind band.
