FYW-1276 Background Noises


This course explores the role of music in media, politics, sports, advertising, and religion. This music appeals to our tastes, emotions, ideas, and beliefs. Students who complete this seminar will be able to identify the sorts of appeals such music might make, analyze the goal of such appeals and articulate the success of an appeal. This course is unique in considering music as a secondary actor in these contexts, rather than for its own sake. 4 credits.
