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.
