MUSC 103 - Post-Music

This course will explore music-making and listening since World War II from theoretical, musical, and historical perspectives. By listening to examples and reading writings by philosophers, composers, and historians, students will be introduced to the study of new musics that have emerged in the West since 1945. There will be a primary emphasis on musics in the Western art music tradition that incorporate avant-garde or experimental elements (including serialism, minimalism, early electroacoustic and synthesizer music, and aleatoric composition). However, jazz and popular musics will also be considered, with consideration of e.g. free jazz, fusion, psychedelic and progressive rock, noise-rock, and ambient electronica.

Fulfills the Aesthetic Perspective requirement
