MUS 16 Music and Image

This course investigates how musical media stimulate social, cultural, and ideological exchange in the twenty-first century. Through global perspectives, we will consider the roles of film, television, video games, music videos, and related media—from autotune controversies to Guitar Hero tournaments, from the live-tweeting of Wagner’s Ring to Tan Dun’s Internet Symphony for the YouTube Orchestra. Prominent themes include: new media’s purported democratizing effects on the production, circulation, and consumption of music; the changing roles and responsibilities of musicians in an age of digital globalization; and the power of musical media to structure human experience writ large.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
