MUS 507 Architecture of Music II

Building on foundational concepts of musical structure examined in MUS 106, this course explores sophisticated musical form from a global perspective. Particular attention will be paid to the historical development of harmonic and melodic compositional tropes, and complex rhythmic and formal structures. Students will also investigate microtonal modes popular in global musical traditions. With examples from both ancient and modern genres, lectures will situate the subtleties of musical aesthetics in their socio-historical and cultural contexts. UL Lect: 3 hrs.
