Listening Lab


How do we perceive the world around us by listening to sound and music? What can we learn about the world and each other when we tune our ears to particular types of sound, or particular musical traditions? This course offers students an immersive listening environment in which they will be exposed to musics from around the world. Students will practice close listening to connect how music and sound interact with race, gender, sexuality, politics, religion, history, and place. Students will practice writing to understand how language can be used to convey sound and music. No prior technical musical knowledge or experience is required.
