Section 001 Musical Aspects of Japanese Noh Drama: an Ethnomusicological Approach.

Instructor(s): Takanori Fujita

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course will focus on musical aspects of Noh, one of the Japanese classical theatre genres. Topics range from performance practice in chanting and instrumental playing to the meanings that musical practices carry in contemporary Japanese society. In parallel to this, we will reconsider such theoretical themes in ethnomusicology as musical terminology, redundancy and cueing, orality, notation, transmission, technology's impact, authenticity, revivals of tradition, historical consciousness, performance group membership, social identity, gender nationality, music and academic discourse, and patronage.

This course will also offer students a weekly lesson of Noh music. Students are expected not only to learn how to chant and play instruments but also to frame questions about style and the meanings of Noh practice, as if they were researchers. The weekly lesson is not designed only for this course's students, but will be open to all those who are interested in Noh.

All of the readings will be in English. Japanese language skill is not necessary for this course. Undergraduates must contact Hugh De Ferranti (hbd@umich.edu) for permission to register and an override.
