MU 243 - Materials and Structures III


Credits: 4
This semester will introduce students to the compositional and analytical procedures of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Topics will include the set-theoretical experiments of the atonal period, the 12-tone serialism of the mid-twentieth century, and the wide variety of influences (folk music, non-Western musics, jazz, and popular musics, as well as ongoing points of influence and connection from the harmony and counterpoint of Western art music) adopted by composers during these years. Students will develop systematic, critical approaches to the range of contemporary musical styles and possibilities as they choose their own musical pathways.
Prerequisites:  .
