MUS 25 Introduction to Sonic Arts

This course provides an introduction to the study of music with sound technology, using notable examples in music, sound art, intermedia, and installation. Starting with the birth of electricity, Futurism, and Dada, students will examine the practices and innovations that led to the most current ideas about Sonic Art, and from here develop analytical methods for exploring music of more distant times and places. Students will be expected to develop a rounded 21st-century musicianship through the weekly Tonmeister labs, and the culmination of this course will be the creation of a basic original sonic arts composition using the technique and aesthetic principles learned throughout the course.





Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
