MUS 202-02 - Topics in American Music: Sound Material, Sound Art

4 credits (Fall)
This interdisciplinary studio course explores sound as an artistic medium. Through a series of creative prompts, the course investigates the unique opportunities and challenges that this “immaterial material” affords. From musique concrète to investigations of the boundaries between noise, silence, and music, we will explore how diverse historical movements and moments have shaped the relatively new and necessarily broad contemporary field described as ‘sound art’.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Aresty
