Course Description

Sound in Time, MUS 5R

This online course is about understanding the broader aspect of sound, both as physical phenomena, as part of our environment, as a tool for human expression and as a way to understand and analyze human culture. In class we will discuss music as an art form of using sounds and consider its relative position in different cultural settings over different time periods, with emphasis on contemporary experimental approaches and the use of electronics.
