In this course, we explore the reciprocal relationships created between music and other artistic media such as text, images, dance, and film when combined in multimedia works. “Multimedia” is defined broadly here, encompassing artworks that involve multiple artistic dimensions, including songs and program music as well as dance and film. Readings about music in songs and musical drama, dance, film, video games, and cartoons will facilitate class discussions in a seminar setting, involving compositional techniques and approaches, as well as issues of aesthetics, interpretation and analysis, and politics of race, gender, and society as demonstrated in the numerous multimedia works we will discuss. This course is open to all majors.
