About this course:

In this course, we discuss the extent to which music reflects the outlook of its host culture. We explore non-Western music such as Indian, Indonesian, Native American, Australian Aboriginal and Papuan-New Guinean music reconciles those peoples to their landscapes; and consider how the various Western genres reflect different ways of looking at the world. A symphony constructs a sense of achievement, victory, even, according to some writers, colonization. We consider the words of songs and their relationship to other musical elements and examine different ways of structuring music. At the same time, we look at how a recent sense of world music has influenced Western musical traditions.
