MUS 17.01 Sonic Landscapes

This experimental interdisciplinary course explores the intersection of ethnography and art as means of documenting how humans interact with landscape and soundscape in some of the earth’s most extreme environments. Examples are drawn from music and sound art, field recordings, film, photography, writing, and emerging multimedia practices, with a focus on the “cross-breeding” of documentary media and methodologies that are mutually enriching. In addition to reading, writing, listening, and viewing assignments, students will conduct their own empirical exploration of the interrelationship of landscape and soundscape through a self-designed audiovisual project. Throughout the course, students will be challenged to develop their own critical, creative, and sensorial understanding of the relationship of nature and culture, and of the relevance of artistic practice to the human sciences.

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.
