Permission of instructor required.

B. Piekut.

This course, intended for music majors, music minors, and suitably interested non-majors and non-minors, surveys the vast terrain and diverse topography of music since 1945. Involving a comprehensive listening component alongside score study and a wide range of primary and secondary sources, the course is designed to develop students’ knowledge of repertory, musical institutions, and social practices; it also aims to equip them with the means to think critically about music and texts amid shifting historical contexts. Topics will include electronic music, sound art, improvisation, minimalism, and noise.
