Please include a short statement explaining your involvement in the creation of the work. The statement should note whether you are the sole creator or a collaborator; the composer, arranger, or remixer; and whether you are performing the work on the recording(s).
A separate typed one-page statement of your musical background, influences, and goals and exactly how you think the music technology program will be a good fit for your goals.
Please send your portfolio to the admissions office, not to the music department. The address is located at the top of this page.
