MUS239: Sound and Place

Course Info

What is the relationship between sound and place? How do we experience the everyday sounds of our acoustic environment? What stories can sound tell? This course invites students to engage with Princeton's soundscape. We will explore a range of topics in sound studies--including acoustic ecology, sound maps, sonification, and historical soundscapes--as well as study, perform, and experience sound art and experimental music that engages with notions of place. Students will make field recordings and work on creative final projects (individual or collaborative) developed in consultation with the instructor.
