New Modes of Listening (MTH2273.01)

Andrew Greenwald

This is a music-centric course for those interested in investigating new ways of thinking about and listening to music. Our received modes of comprehension will be questioned by theories of reception, network, and system in diverse fields of inquiry. The relationship of form and content in numerous musical works will act as a testing ground for developing these modes. Together we will recontextualize our valuations of music, and widen our paths of engagement with the art form as a whole. The class will focus on assimilating tools acquired through weekly readings by applying them to musical examples in lecture discussions. Creativity, criticality, and synergy are of the highest priority.
