Note: How does music affect our perception of political film? How does music manipulate our feelings for or against the subject matter? In this course we will survey some of the major films in this genre, beginning with Battle of the Somme (1916), and ending with Songs of War (2012) as well as more recent political films. In addition to readings on the political/historical topic, we will learn basic terminology and analytical techniques for film music.

Note: The course is about the classical music traditions of North India, also known as Hindustani music. The first half of the course focuses on acquiring mastery over the basic musical materials of this idiom through singing, improvisation, and transcription exercises. The second half of the course builds on these skills to theorize about and analyze aspects of North Indian classical pitch (i.e. raga) and rhythmic (i.e. tala) structure, form, performance practice, and their connection to other musical idioms, including the classical music of South India, and the classical and popular musical traditions of the West.
