MUSC 0160-301 Mozart to Mitski and Bach to Beyonce Anna T Weesner TR 1:45 PM-3:14 PM Mozart to Mitski and Bach to Beyonce

Hopefully without leaving out Dowland or Dylan, this seminar will focus on songs from wide ranging
eras. Intended not as a survey course, but rather as one in which we bring acute focus
to selected music, our goals will include the development of skills in hearing and in articulating
what you hear, learning new repertoire, bringing fresh ears to music you may already know,
asking effective questions about music itself as well as about how music figures in our lives.
Regular assignments will include listening, reading, and both analytical and reflective writing.
There will be a final paper and an in-class presentation. Written work will be done in prose,
with occasional options to compose in response to the music we are studying. (Composing is an
option and not a requirement for the class.)

MUSC 0180A-401 Music in Urban Spaces Molly Jean Mcglone F 3:30 PM-5:29 PM Music in Urban Spaces is a year-long experience that explores the ways in which individuals use music in their everyday lives and how music is used to construct larger social and economic networks that we call culture. We will read the work of musicologists, cultural theorists, urban geographers, sociologists and educators who work to define urban space and the role of music and sound in urban environments, including through music education. While the readings make up our study of the sociology of urban space and the way we use music in everyday life to inform our conversations and the questions we ask, it is within the context of our personal experiences working with music programs in public neighborhood schools serving economically disadvantaged students, that we will begin to formulate our theories of the contested musical micro-cultures of West Philadelphia. This course is over two-semesters where students register for .5 cus each term (for a total of 1 cu over the entire academic year) and is tied to the Music and Social Change Residential Program in Fisher Hassenfeld College House which will sponsor field trips around the city and a final concert for youth to perform here at Penn, if possible. Students are expected to volunteer in music and drama programs in Philadelphia neighborhood public schools throughout the course experience. URBS0180A401 Humanties & Social Science Sector

MUSC 0181-301 On Belonging: Music, Displacement, and Well-Being Carol Ann Muller F 10:15 AM-1:14 PM The 2020s has begun as a time of global existential angst: we are all living with so much uncertainty and change. Think of the impact of the COVID pandemic and the questioning of science in the form of vaccine resistance; climate change challenges; a technological and educational revolution; growing income inequality; the urgency of BLM protests in the USA, moves against dictatorships, the need to decolonize universities, and the pressure to address human rights and refugee challenges. But it is also a moment of real excitement, with increased technological access and presence in our lives. In fact, the capacity to connect to others almost anywhere in the world, immediately, is truly revolutionary. As is the capacity to plug into the sound of the world’s music in an instant. Through personal music listening, for example, we can use music to soothe, to excite, to travel imaginatively, to focus, for meditation, as a soundtrack to our everyday lives, and as emotional regulation. But the work of music for personal wellbeing and collective healing is much larger than just an individualized listening experience. This seminar opens up the issue of emotional regulation and collective healing by examining the relationship between sound and musical practice, performance, and engagement, both locally and around the world.
You might think about this seminar as a kind of reflexive moment as you arrive on campus: as undergraduates and members of communities you will think about the relationship between your own recent move/displacement and the work of music/sound as a strategy of individual and collective belonging. There will be an ABCS component to the class.

MUSC 1300-001 1000 Years of Musical Listening Mauro P Calcagno MW 10:15 AM-11:44 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 1320-401 Composers: Opera Composers 1600-1900 Mauro P Calcagno This course will center on the biography, works, and cultural context of a specific composer or group of composers. As well as introducing students to the musical works of the composer(s), the course will examine issues such as reception history, the canon, mechanisms of cult formation, authorship and attribution, identity, historical and social contexts, and nationalism and patriotism. Fulfills Arts and Letters Requirement. The course centers on a group of composers who created or developed opera as a successful genre by setting texts in Italian: Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Verdi, and Puccini. We will explore how these musicians were involved in opera as a business model, how their careers took shape, how their music interacted on stage with words, bodies, and sets (enhancing narratives based on literature, mythology and history), how their works were products of larger social contexts, and finally, how and why these operas are presented today by American theatres (also adapted as Broadway musicals) or in film versions. The course is intended for non-majors, but music majors are welcome. Knowledge of Italian is not necessary. ITAL1320401 Arts & Letters Sector

MUSC 1420-001 Thinking About Popular Music Glenda Goodman TR 10:15 AM-11:44 AM Catchy yet controversial. Fun but hard-hitting. Popular music is not just entertaining: it presents societal issues, raises questions, expresses ideas. This course considers how popular music of the 20th century manifested the hopes, contradictions, ingenuity, and challenges of life in the United States, as seen and heard through the experiences of musicians and audiences. We will address three core questions: (1) How is “talent” and “good” music distinguished? (2) What happens when we treat music as “property,” especially with respect to broader ideas of ownership and credit? (3) When, how, and why is music considered dangerous? We delve into these questions by profiling musicians’ lives, analyzing the musical traits of specific repertoire, investigating changes in how music circulates, and situating popular music in U.S. cultural history. This course is not a chronological survey and does not aim to cover all U.S. popular music (or global popular music). Instead, each core question is addressed through case studies. Over the course of the semester students learn listening and analytic skills, how to engage critically with a range of writings about music, how to develop compelling arguments and articulate them verbally in class discussions and in writing assignments.

MUSC 1500-401 World Musics and Cultures Vincent D Kelley TR 12:00 PM-1:29 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 3460-401 The Blackness of Rock: Revisiting Histories of Race, Gender, and Genre Timothy Rommen T 1:45 PM-4:44 PM This course explores the history of rock music by focusing specifically on the innovations and contributions of black musicians. The course will address itself to the legacies of race records, the uninterrupted appropriation of black sounds by white artists (think Elvis), and the further complications introduced by the British Invasion, all while focusing on individual artists such as Fats Domino, Big Mama Thornton, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Jimi Hendrix. The course will highlight and offer hands-on explorations of the innovations brought to rock music by these black artists. And, because the guitar is such an iconic instrument in rock, the course also will introduce students, through a series of labs, to the gear that makes these sounds possible. Understanding how amplifiers, effects pedals, and guitars interact and produce radically divergent sounds depending on how they are set up will offer insights into the artistry of these early rock musicians. Understanding the circuits, and how using (and abusing) them in particular ways is part of the materiality of rock's sound, will help shed light on the extent to which creative engagement with technology determined particular sonic pathways within the genre (distortion, overdrive, fuzz, feedback, etc.). And, these innovations literally shaped the future of rock, providing a foundation of sound and style and a particular relationship to gear that extends into the present. The final unit of the course will explore the racial politics, gender dynamics, and industry structures that have buried the black histories of rock and sidelined women's crucial contributions to the genre, contributing to rock's framing and marketing as a (mostly) male, white genre. The course will also ask how black musicians who perform rock today, such as Tosin Abasi, Lenny Kravitz, Brittany Howard of the Alabama Shakes, Bad Brains, Big Joanie, and Living Colour, among many others, negotiate these politics, these silenced histories, these industry barriers, and these audience expectations?

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.

MUSC 6300-301 Historical and Historiographic Approaches Mary C Caldwell W 1:45 PM-4:44 PM Gender, Sexuality, and Early Music: 20 Years Later

This seminar considers the intersection of gender, sexuality, and music in the European Middle Ages, revisiting twenty years after its 2002 publication the same concepts and methodologies explored in an edited collection by Todd M. Borgerding, Gender, Sexuality, and Early Music. By contrast to the chronologically later focus of that volume on the 16th-18th centuries, we will focus chiefly on music and music making between the 10th to 15th centuries. In addition to exploring what the last twenty years have offered in musicology, we will engage with rich scholarship emerging in medieval studies on gender, sexuality, and the queering of the Middle Ages, as well as with contemporary theoretical frameworks outside of music and medieval studies.

This seminar takes as its objects of study music books. Or rather, “books,” for we will explore all manner of material texts that represent the intersection of inscription and sound. We will focus on the eighteenth-century Atlantic World, a period and place in which mass print ramped up but did not replace prior formats, and a period in which published music was the critical locus for questions of ownership, authorship, creativity, taste, and various forms of power. Students will become conversant with musicological scholarship on music and print, with interdisciplinary scholarship on book history and critical bibliography, as well as work in feminist bibliography, format studies, material culture studies and the study of “things”. Core questions for the course include: how do material artefacts themselves present evidence though which we can assess their musical, cultural, and social impacts on people in the past? How did technology and human agents interact in the making and using of music books? What roles did various actors—performers, composers, audiences, publishers and printers—play in the creation and circulation of music books? And how does the “bookification” of music, its distribution in tangible, material form, bear upon questions of value and meaning in music?

MUSC 7700-301 Studies in Music Theory and Analysis Jairo A Moreno T 1:45 PM-4:44 PM Liminologies

Few matters are as perplexing at the present conjuncture than the coexistence of two radically opposing tendencies: on the one hand, a ferocious and militant commitment to identity and the shoring up of clearly defined and unmovable limits between things, and, on the other, an equally passionate and urgent commitment to relationality and the constant traversal and/or erasure of limits between things, an “age of entanglement” (Mbembe 2017). Consider disciplinary objects. For Music Studies, no barrier more formidable exists than the fact that something called music exists and that, no matter how finely contextualized “culturally” and “historically,” it holds an unquestionable central place in our work. Music Studies, one might say, begins with this axiom and only then seeks to establish relations that attend to its object’s existence, persistence, and, these days, possible subsistence. Sound Studies confronts a nearly opposite situation, its object famously under question, open and relational—in fact, often serving as a model for relationality as such. Scholars and practitioners then endeavor to identify the specific conditions of possibility for its existence in particularly determined spheres. We may sum this up in terms of a renewed version of an ancient problem, the relation of the One and the Many, one for which the character of delimiting which is which is of the essence. The question today, as earlier, is one of limits: determining their nature, affirming their values and validity, surveilling their domains, keeping watch (and hearing) at the gates they enforce, and equally about challenging them, transforming or disavowing their values, breaking through their gates. Liminologies names these structuring and ordering relations.

The seminar will consider both the theoretical organization of limits (their conditions of possibility) and their positive, perhaps even empirical, expressions. Our study is organized in three parts: (i) Logics of the limit in philosophical discourse; (ii) Notions of difference in political theory; (iii) Limits in specific sociopolitical, cultural, and natural terrains, including those that name terrains as being social, political, cultural, and/or natural. We will consider the dynamics at the heart of notions such as Center/Periphery, Same/Other, Inclusion/Exclusion, as well as others that disrupt and even sabotage the dualistic logic of limits, including Extensive/Intensive Differences, Différance, Individuation, and Systems theories. Specific topics include, World-Systems Theory, Coloniality/Modernity (and within it, Race and Racialization), Community and Immunity, Species-ism, Relationality, Individualism and Individuation, as well as models that attempt to think intermixings (Hybridity, Transculturation, and Synchretism) and disavowals (Queerness). We will think across a number of disciplines: Sound Studies, Anthropology, Political Theory, Continental Philosophy, Critical Race Theory, Queer Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Authors include, Wallerstein, Simondon, Haraway, Irigaray, Butler, Braidotti, Halberstam, Derrida, Badiou, Foucault, Lorde, Strathern, Laclau, Rancière, Ochoa Gautier, Feld, Viveiros de Castro.
