MUSIC 149J: Music, Interpretation, Meaning (MUSIC 249J)

This course is an inquiry into music, interpretation, and meaning. These are obviously inexhaustibly rich and complex topics; to bring our inquiry into focus, we will conduct it principally through engagement with a selection of works from the late Classical through the Modern eras that we judge invite and endure exacting attention. To deepen our encounters and our thinking, we will also study texts ranging from aphorisms to poems to philosophical and musicological essays. Students will participate through both discussion and short write responses to the topics, and will write an analytical paper, summarizing their findings as well in class. Pre-/corequisite (for music majors): MUSIC 22. (Meets Music's WIM requirement.)

MUSIC 153: Online Jamming and Concert Technology (ARTSINST 141)

Today's vast amount of streaming and video conferencing on the Internet lacks one aspect of musical fun and that's what this course is about: high-quality, near-synchronous musical collaboration. Under the right conditions, the Internet can be used for ultra-low-latency, uncompressed sound transmission. The course teaches open-source (free) techniques for setting up city-to-city studio-to-studio audio links. Distributed rehearsing, production and split ensemble concerts are the goal. Setting up such links and debugging them requires knowledge of network protocols, network audio issues and some ear training.
