MUSC 191 - Improvisation and Aleatory

In this course, students will be immersed in both the theory and the practice of improvised, aleatoric, and open-form music, with a view to a variety of traditions but with a focus on post-WWII avant-garde and experimental Western musics. Students will compose an aleatoric piece, perform aleatoric compositions and freely improvised pieces, study a substantial repertoire of musical works and theoretical writings, and give a historical or theoretical presentation, leading up to a substantial final project.
