MUS 106 The Architecture of Music

From the Pythagorean monochord that ancient Greeks used to align with the Music of the Spheres to the Chinese bamboo pipes that sounded the first Chinese pentatonic scale, each culture has created its own coherent structure. This course introduces students to the historical development and foundational theories of both ancient and contemporary musical form through the exploration of musical genres around the world. Lectures will situate musical theories in their socio-historical and cultural contexts. LL Lect: 3 hrs. Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
