MUS313: Introduction to Experimental Music History and Practice

Course Info

This course combines a survey of the history of American experimental music with hands-on participation in the performance of important works in the repertoire. Experimental music questions the traditional modes of composing music and explores new and unusual ways to create musical experience: leaving certain elements to chance, incorporating improvisation, and using graphic scores. In addition to learning to perform existing works, the students will create their own experimental music compositions and perform them. The course requires no prerequisites or specific training in music.
