Course Description

Blacktronika: Afrofuturism, MUS 19R

This is an online course that explores the lineage of electronic music's Black pioneers, who have been integral but overlooked in the discussion around the creation & development of house, techno, drum & bass and experimental music. These musics were developed with sociopolitical movements at the foundation of the sounds. We will investigate the African diaspora lens through the artists' usage of science fiction, technology and futurist ideologies.
