Music: The Sonic Landscape (6 credits)
Workshop in Composition and Improvisation. Summer, June 1- July 13, 2011
This course will use the unique setting of the Accademia dell'Arte in Arezzo, Italy to allow for the exploration of composition and improvisation as a collaborative process, creating music for dance or theatrical productions as well as concert pieces.
Composers and improvisers will create works for various ensembles in both large-scale and short forms as appropriate to their individual goals, as well as explore alternative notation and/or cueing systems.
Class will consist of periodic roundtable discussions of orchestrational as well as formal issues and weekly readings of student works. In addition to work for acoustical instruments, introductory to advanced work with electronic resources will be included.
Instructor: Dr. Douglas Ovens, Chair of the Muhlenberg College Music Department.
