In 2004, many CANZ members took part in a survey conducted by then Victoria University PhD student Chris Watson. Chris was looking at the effects of music notation software on compositional practices and outcomes and received data in the form of completed questionnaires from some 106 active New Zealand composers. Chris has now graduated and, as promised, his analysis of the questionnaire data is now available for composers to view, by visiting the following URL:
Here, you will have the option of downloading Chris’s complete thesis, or just the chapter dealing with the results of the questionnaire.
Chris would like to thank members of the composition community for their time and effort in completing his questionnaire and hopes that its findings are of benefit.
