Music Theory through Performance and Composition Spring 2024 - MUS 106

A deep dive into Harmony and Modality in three speeds: fast (chorale); slower (classical, rock, instrumental baroque, romantic lieder) and slow (new modality, minimalism). We will consider these speeds of harmonic motion, and their effect on the resulting music, both theoretically and creatively through exercises and model composition. Attention will be paid to voice-leading, especially in the fastest harmonic context of chorales. The course is designed to help you develop your understanding of harmony in music, analyze existing musical works, and compose your own harmonically rooted music.
