INST 2605 - Composing a Musical Life

Hours: 4
Over the past one hundred years, technology has influenced the role of music in our lives. With the rise of recording technologies and portable music players, music can now be anywhere; the acts of listening and creating are no longer dependent on live performance. This course will examine the landscape of music in the 21st century. Students will learn the vocabulary for discussing the basic elements of music and practice listening skills across a variety of genres,
particularly those whose existence is dependent upon electronically‐reproduced sound. They will learn the basics of composing music using the computer and make their own pieces to share online. Finally, students will consider the ramifications of consuming and distributing music in a global media culture.
