MUSIC 118: Musics and Appropriation Throughout the World (AFRICAAM 218, CSRE 118D)

This course critically examines musical practices and appropriation through the amplification of intersectionality. We consider musics globally through recourse to ethnomusicological literature and critical race theories. Our approach begins from an understanding that the social and political contexts where musics are created, disseminated, and consumed inform disparate interpretations and meanings of music, as well as its sounds. Our goal is to shape our ears to hear the effects of slavery, colonialism, capitalism, nationalism, class, gender difference, militarism, and activism. We interrogate the process of appropriating musics throughout the world by making the power structures that shape privileges and exclusions audible.

MUSIC 120D: Jazz Improvisation

This class will focus on developing a deeper understanding of, and capacity for, jazz improvisation -- as it relates to individual expression as well as group interaction, communication, and cohesion. In-class soloing and ensemble playing; guided listening; ear training; internalization; personalization; collaboration; and an awareness of the historical evolution of the jazz improvisational language will all be emphasized. The coursework will be primarily based on actual instrumental performance and practice; with an extensive listening list; some reading; and complementary composition, transcribing, self-evaluation and writing assignments. Limited enrollment: Audition required. The class will appear to be closed, so students who would like to enroll must join the Axess waiting list.
