The course will explore the central chamber music repertory from mid 18th. to the late 19th century. Our primary emphasis will be on string music, but we will also study a number of works that include the piano and wind instruments. We will proceed along two closely related tracks: on the one hand, we will acquire an appreciation of the stylistic conventions and transformations that shaped the genre during some of its most intense phases of development; on the other hand, we will explore the performing traditions of the genres of chamber music in the context of an in-depth, analytic study of the musical texts. Select readings will help us reconstruct a broad picture of the circumstances of composition and performance of chamber music in the "classic" and "romantic" eras and will sharpen our analytic understanding of the nuts-and-bolts of the language and gestures of chamber music. In-class performances will provide opportunities to discuss issues in performance practice.

This course will explore the technical, narrative, emotional, and cultural synesthesia of sound and narrative film. In addition to the Monday / Wednesday classes, a Thursday evening screening (8-10 P.M.) will be offered. Although attendance at this screening is preferred, it is not required as students may elect to rent movies on their own or check out library copies when available. Films must be viewed before the Monday discussion. Topics covered will include the rhetoric of film music, film music techniques (synchronization, orchestration, etc.), associative listening, and the analysis of select influential soundtracks, such as Toy Story (R. Newman), The Birth of a Nation (Breil), City Lights (Chaplin), King Kong (Steiner), Fantasia, Of Mice and Men (Copland), Citizen Kane and Vertigo (Herrmann,) To Kill A Mockingbird (E. Bernstein), Anatomy of a Murder (Ellington), Koyaanisqatsi (Glass), Star Wars (Williams), The Red Violin (Corigliano), and Illuminata (Bolcom). Previous experience in music history or film studies is recommended. Course materials will include three texts and online musical examples. Students will be expected to keep up with readings, participate in discussion (online and in-class), take regular quizzes, present a group introduction to a film, and complete a rich analytical graph of a music cue, as well as develop a final term project. Students who are filmmakers or musicians will have the option of collaborating to produce music for an original production project. Registration by permission of instructor only.

This course will explore issues concerning women and music. Central questions to be addressed will be: how do we talk about women in music? and is there a "gendered" voice in music? Topics will include women as composers, performers, scholars, patrons and subjects in music. Case studies will primarily be drawn from the 19th through 21st centuries. The course material will incorporate different genres and styles of music from "classical" (e.g., opera, art song, chamber music) to "popular (e.g., jazz and blues, rock and hip-hop). We will also discuss women and music in literature (readings from Goethe's Faust and Ntozake Shange's Sassafrass, Cypress & Indigo). Grades will be based on class participation and written work. This course encourages interdisplinary dialogue and encourages students from the School of Music, LSA and other schools at the UM.

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: https://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2003/winter/musicol/458/001.nsf

The overlapping of music and trancing in ritual events is ancient and universal. There are no societies that do no have some form of institutionalized, religious trance ceremonies that include music. This course will examine the relationship of music and religious trancing within diverse ritual contexts. Theoretical works on ritual and the role of emotion and music on trancing will be studied in relation to specific religious practices from north India (Sufi), Bali, Indonesia (Hindu) and north America (Christian Pentecostals). While ritual trancing and its music occur in culturally saturated contexts, it is possible to extract certain commonalities of the music/ trance axis that enable the phenomenon to be considered within the frame of recent scientific theories of consciousness. Recent works on the biology and neuroscience of music, ritual and trancing will be studied. There are no prerequisites for this course. A music background may be helpful but is not necessary. There will be two or more examinations consisting of essay questions and a final paper.

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: https://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2003/winter/musicol/639/001.nsf

This seminar will examine the emergence and development of the polyphonic Mass, beginning with medieval plainchant and proceeding into the Renaissance. Music will be the main focus, but changing theology and popular conceptions of the Mass Ordinary will a lso be examined. (Investigating such matters may shed some light on the introduction of the polyphonic Mass, the tradition of Mass cycles, the use of secular cantus firmi, and the role of certain contrapuntal artifices, such as mensuration canons.) Depen d ing on the enrollment, masters and doctoral students should anticipate two or three oral reports and two term papers. In addition to these, grading will be based on students’ currency with issues raised in the required readings (books, articles) and listening assignments..
