Additional Course Description: 

 

What is music? Why does music move us? What music moves you? How does music work? What are the basic elements of music and how do we process them? How do humans use music?  How have humans used music in the past? How do we use music? Can music communicate ideas? How? What kinds of ideas? Is music political?  These are just some of the big questions we'll be exploring together in Honors Introduction to Music.  This class approaches music from its broadest definition and there will be room in the syllabus to accommodate interests and ideas that students suggest during the first week of class.  Music is more than the Western Classical canon & therefore some of the "masterpieces" we will explore together will include works and practices that may not necessarily fit into the tradition of written concert performance music.  Our range will be quite broad and could include any and all of what you see linked below.

Through selected readings, attentive listening, viewing, and discussion of a variety of films and multi-media productions, students develop a common vocabulary for analyzing music accompanying moving images. Students develop an understanding of the western and non-western musical conventions that work, often at a subconcious level, in conjunction with images to shape and cue audience responses to, and interaction with, visual cues. Media includes canonic Hollywood films, independent and foreign cinema, with explorations of non-Western films, video game scoring, television, and animation. This course does not fulfill a music major program requirement nor does it satisfy the Fine and Performing Arts Discovery requirement for any music major program.
