Omschrijving Technologies shape the way we think, feel, and behave. This course examines the role of technologies in affording the ways we produce and receive sound and music and, in turn, the ways sound and music participate in the configuration of thought, affect, and action. The emphasis of the course is on recent technologies and students will be offered both theoretical frameworks for understanding the impact of key shifts in sonic technologies and opportunities for group listening and discussion. We will consider musical and non-musical sound and the presence of both in film and other media, live performance, and urban and rural sound environments.
