MUS 4 Global Sounds

A survey of music and music-making whose origins are at least partially in the non-European world. In Spring 2015, the class will address ways that particular kinds of music are culturally and socially contextualized, comodified, and transformed as they circulate globally. Examples include Indian raga, Javanese gamelan, and Gnawa trance music. Course work will include listening, reading, and critical writing assignments. Where possible, visiting musicians will be invited to demonstrate and discuss the music under consideration.

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.
