FA/MUSI 1530 6.00   Rock and Popular Music


Course Description:

Explores in-depth the range of Euro-American popular musics as well as some styles of British popular music that have come into existence since the end of World War II. All styles and genres are studied from both a musicological and sociological perspective. The reading of the various texts (i.e., pieces of music) that make up the core content of the course are informed by such key issues as subculture, transculturation, political economy, the rise of the mass media (including music video), new technologies (including sampling), urbanization and gender. Particular attention is paid to the interplay of both black and white sacred and secular cultures that has so richly informed the development of much of this music. Designed for students not majoring or minoring in Music. Prerequisite: None.

Language of Instruction:

English
