MUSC 030-001 1000 Yrs Musical Listeng LERN 101 MWF 10:15 AM-11:15 AM We know that we like music and that it moves us, yet it is often difficult to pinpoint exactly why, and harder still to explain what it is we are hearing. This course takes on those issues. It aims to introduce you to a variety of music, and a range of ways of thinking, talking and writing about music. The majority of music dealt with will be drawn from the so-called "Classical" repertory, from the medieval period to the present day, including some of the 'greats' such as Handel, Beethoven, Mozart, Berlioz, and Verdi, but will also introduce you to music you will most likely never have encountered before. This course will explore the technical workings of music and the vocabularies for analyzing music and articulating a response to it; it also examines music as a cultural phenomenon, considering what music has meant for different people, from different societies across the ages and across geographical boundaries. As well as learning to listen ourselves, we will also engage with a history of listening. No prior musical knowledge is required. (Formerly Music 021).

MUSC 033-001 History of Opera Lily T Kass LERN 102 TR 12:00 PM-01:30 PM An investigation, through a series of representative works, of the central problem of opera: how does the combination of music, text, and visual spectacle create an art form in which the whole is more powerful than its parts. Today this issue can be examined not only in live performances but also through media such as film, DVD, streaming video-- media to which this four-centuries-old multimedia form has adapted, evolving in still compelling ways. The works chosen for the course provide a chronological survey but also represent the variety of sources on which opera has drawn for it subject matter: myth and legend, the epic, the novel, and the play.

MUSC 050-401 World Musics & Cultures Juliet Pascal Glazer LERN 101 TR 01:45 PM-03:15 PM This course examines how we as consumers in the "Western" world engage with musical difference largely through the products of the global entertainment industry. We examine music cultures in contact in a variety of ways-- particularly as traditions in transformation. Students gain an understanding of traditional music as live, meaningful person-to-person music making, by examining the music in its original site of production, and then considering its transformation once it is removed, and recontextualized in a variety of ways. The purpose of the course is to enable students to become informed and critical consumers of "World Music" by telling a series of stories about particular recordings made with, or using the music of, peoples culturally and geographically distant from the US. Students come to understand that not all music downloads containing music from unfamiliar places are the same, and that particular recordings may be embedded in intriguing and controversial narratives of production and consumption. At the very least, students should emerge from the class with a clear understanding that the production, distribution, and consumption of world music is rarely a neutral process.

MUSC 257-401 Caribbean Mus & Diaspora Timothy Rommen LERN 102 R 01:45 PM-04:45 PM This course considers Caribbean musics within a broad and historical framework.Caribbean musical practices are explored by illustrating the many ways that aesthetics, ritual, communication, religion, and social structure are embodied in and contested through performance. These initial inquiries open onto an investigation of a range of theoretical concepts that become particularly pertinent in Caribbean contexts--concepts such as post-colonialism, migration, ethnicity, hybridity, syncretism, and globalization. Each of these concepts, moreover, will be explored with a view toward understanding its connections to the central analytical paradigm of the course--diaspora. Throughout the course, we will listen to many different styles and repertories of music ranging from calpso to junkanoo, from rumba to merengue, and from dance hall to zouk. We will then work to understand them not only in relation to the readings that frame our discussions but also in relation to our own North-American contexts of music consumption and production.

What do performers bring to a piece of music and how do composers best anticipate these possibilities? How much “room” for interpretation exists and how do composers capitalize on it? What is performance practice? The course will engage compositional techniques in connection with a wide of range of performance practices. In order to highlight and pursue elements of interpretation in music performance, students will coach performers in both old and new repertoire. The course will involve interactions with live performers, often Penn’s string quartet-in-residence, The Daedalus Quartet. Other topics may include notational solutions, the role of improvisation, aleatoric techniques, and music analysis.
This seminar will meet weekly as scheduled.
Assignments will include listening, reading, score study, and composing.

MUSC 770-401 Sacred and Secular Black Muscial Expression Cory Hunter LERN CONF F 01:45 PM-04:45 PM Sacred and Secular Black Musical Expression, Cory Hunter

This seminar will examine the intersection of the sacred and the secular in black musical performance and expression. With black gospel music as the central focal point, we will examine the ways in which black sacred music and black church traditions have been in conversation with various secular forms of music and expression. Questions that will be raised throughout this seminar include: how do secular artists invoke the sacred on a secular platform? And conversely, how do gospel artists engage the secular and adjust their stylistic approach to have appeal beyond the confinements of the black church? We will examine the consequences that artists endure when attempting to expand beyond the rules of propriety associated with particular sacred/secular spaces. Additionally, we will consider how particular identity markers —i.e. race, gender, and sexual identity and expression—are implicated in the traversal of sacred and secular boundaries.
