Composition
1. Devise a scenario that might inspire you to write a Darkness to Light composition (i.e. sunrise or a psychological breakthrough or a film scene in which the forces of light triumph over the forces of darkness)

2. Look on the composition resources Moodle and find at least two specific passages of music that you can take ideas from to represent darkness and two that might represent light. You need to be specific in your descriptions of the music and what aspects of it you are going to take. You can further pieces taken from Moodle elsewhere if you wish. Please use the Pro Forma on Moodle (AS Music – ‘Sleeve notes and planner submissions’ – ‘Influences Initial Tracker’) and submit it on Moodle in the ‘Influences and Planner Submissions’ folder on Music AS moodle BEFORE next lesson.
