MUS 3.07 American Music: The Minimalist Impulse

What is minimalist music? What ideas and identities does minimalism illuminate? If less is more, what do less and more sound like and feel like? We will explore these questions. Today, minimalism is both an art-historical style and an aspirational way of life—a psychological and material ideal. In touch with the simultaneously subtle and towering presence of minimalism around us, we will open ourselves to the messages—quiet and loud—that minimalist music can carry.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:ART; WCult:W

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.
