MUS 3.05 American Music: Musical Experiments

What is experimental music?  This course answers that question.  To define experimentation, we first turn to science.  We then investigate how experimentalism in art music and pop shapes us – creators, participants, listeners – and the diverse, expansive identities of America, from the early 20th century to today.  We will feel, and measure, the transgressive and imaginative powers of music.  The goal: to learn what it means to try – through music – new ideas and ways of living.

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.
