MUSC 1764. Popular Music and Social Change in the United States. 3 Credit Hours.

Popular music has become a defining feature of modern cultural existence. Not only do people listen (how could we avoid it if we even wanted to?) but we also engage in heated debates about controversies in this music. Why are people angry about Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea's performances of black musical styles? Is Kanye West a compelling presidential candidate? Why was the first Billboard topping hip hop album by a white group? How has country music become so important to patriotism and why does it focus on white performers? Why do artists like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga draw heated debates from both feminists and also sexists? In this course we will explore what these conversations reveal about our values and the social, economic, and technological forces shaping our lives. We will engage with songs; we'll read selections from journalism, artists' autobiographies, and scholarship; you'll observe a concert of your choice and interview a listener of your choice; and you will craft a playlist about a social issue that's important to you. In the process, you'll learn ways to approach these materials critically and engage with the tension between listener expectations of authenticity from our favorite musicians and the music industry's desire to make as much money as possible. The materials span several genres of music listened to in the United States in the last 100 years. No musical experience is required. The course will include short writing and creative assignments, a midterm, and a final exam.

MUST 0802. The Art of Listening. 4 Credit Hours.

Are you an active or passive listener? What kind of music do you enjoy? How do you compare different musical styles, and what qualities make one performance different from another? Be challenged to rethink your entire conception of music by focusing on how to listen to music to deepen your appreciation of what you are hearing, and to ponder the importance of music in your life and to society. You will not be required to become a performer yourself, but you will become a more discriminating consumer of music through attendance at live concerts in the local area, by observation of in-class performances, rehearsals, and music lessons, and through guided listening exercises in and outside of class. Repertoire selected from Classical, Jazz, Broadway, and World Music will engage your intellectual and emotional response as a concert-goer, listener, researcher, critic, and communicator.
