The music major provides aspiring musicians and/or scholars with a wide range of ways to think about music (performance-related, theoretical, historical, cultural, and compositional) and to concentrate on the aspects of music that most interest them—from popular and world music to computer music. Our faculty engage in cultural studies (i.e., ethnomusicology) and with current literary theory, connect with faculty of other departments (i.e., English, Philosophy, and Psychology), and are on the cutting edge of technological change. Students who have a passion for music and who have already developed basic skills in areas including performance, music history, composition, or ethnography, should consider a major in music.

MUSI UN2030 Jewish Music of New York. 3 points.

Prerequisites: Music Humanities (Columbia University) or An Introduction to Music (Barnard).

With the arrival of the first Jewish immigrants in New York in the mid-1600s until today, Jewish music in the City has oscillated between preserving traditions and introducing innovative ideas. This course explores the variety of ways people have used music to describe, inscribe, symbolize, and editorialize their Jewish experience. Along these lines, it draws upon genres of art music, popular music, and non-Western traditions, as well as practices that synthesize various styles and genres, from hazzanut to hiphop. Diverse musical experiences will serve as a window to address wider questions of identity, memory, and dislocation. We will also experience the Jewish soundscape of New York’s dynamic and eclectic music culture by visiting various venues and meeting key players in today’s music scene, and thus engage in the ongoing dialogues that define Jewishness in New York. A basic familiarity with Judaism and Jewish culture is helpful for this course, but it is by no means required. You do not need to know Jewish history to take this class, nor do you need to be able to read music. Translations from Hebrew and Yiddish will be provided, and musical analysis will be well explained.

MUSI GU4630 Recorded Sound. 3 points.

Prerequisites: The instructor's permission.

As music moves into the 21st century, we find ourselves surrounded by an ever-evolving landscape of technological capability. The world of music, and the music industry itself, is changing rapidly, and with that change comes the opening – and closing – of doorways of possibility.  What does this shift mean for today’s practicing artist or composer?   With big label recording studios signing and nurturing fewer and fewer artists, it seems certain that, today, musicians who want to record and distribute their music need to be able to do much of the recording and production work on their own.   But where does one go to learn how to do this – to learn not only the “how to” part of music production, but the historical underpinnings and the development of the music production industry as well?  How does one develop a comprehensive framework within which they can place their own artistic efforts?  How does one learn to understand what they hear, re-create what they like and develop their own style?


This class, “Recorded Sound,” aims to be the answer.  It’s goal is to teach artists how to listen critically to music from across history and genres in order to identify the production techniques that they hear, and reproduce those elements using modern technology so they can be incorporated into the artist’s own musical works.

MUSI GU4810 Sound: Foundations . 3 points.

This foundational course in sound will begin by exploring how listening happens as well the tools necessary capture and present that listening. Through hands-on experimentation and demonstration, this seminar will examine both the technical and semiotic use of sound as a

material within creative practice. Fundamental studio techniques will be explored including soldering for building cables, microphones, and loudspeakers. We will also explore the building blocks of analog and digital processes for the creation of sound, including microphones (types, patterns, and placement), basic synthesis, and techniques for recording, mixing, editing, and mastering. Through creative projects that implement these skills we will learn by doing. We will study theories of sound and listening that determine or are determined by technology, from the physical and social dimensions of the sounds we use to create, language (sound as a symbol or object), acoustics (sound in space), acousmatics (sound without a visual reference), and psycho-acoustics (sound as cognitive process). This class assumes no prior knowledge or technical skill. Some reading will be assigned and we will look and listen to a lot of work, students are encouraged to participate actively in discussions.

Through the analysis of different case studies, we will investigate different topics from the perspective of ethnomusicology, cultural anthropology, and performance studies. A number of critical questions we will consider include: how does a particular gender ideology constructs and is constructed by musical aesthetics? What are some of the critical roles for women in performance?  What is the significance of gender in performances? What does it mean for women to have have and to be the voice? And how is a musical performance bound up with emotions?

MUSI UN3343 Shades of Brown: Music in the South Asian Diaspora . 3 points.

This course explores the musical world of the South Asian diaspora in Europe and North America. We will read ethnographic accounts of diasporic musics and experiences and develop methods for analysis and interpretation of such accounts, situating the songs of the South Asian diaspora within its broader social history. We will address the concepts of belonging and identity, nostalgia and affect, and the dismantling or upholding of dominant discourses such as gender, race, and caste. Our focus will be on the last half century, although deeper histories will need to be considered. Students will learn to analyze instrumentation and lyrics in various genres and traditions of South Asian music, including both art, folkloric, and popular idioms, and to correlate these with aspects of the social context of diaspora. While the specific focus of the course is on a particular diasporic history, the class will help students understand and think critically about the broader phenomenon of “diaspora” and its cultural dimensions, and through this to engage critically with important aspects of cultural globalization and migration.  


Students from all departments are welcome. Reading music not required.

MUSI UN3346 REIMAGINING RESISTANCE:SOUND AS SUBVERSION IN 20TH & 21ST CENTURY AMERICAN EXPERIMENTALISM. 3 points.

How can composers and musicians push back against inequality and injustice through their creative practice? How can they reimagine, through sound, a more equal, compassionate, collaborative, critically engaged, and humanistic society? How can they critique and transcend categories of race, gender, class, and sexuality to create music that looks to new, more open and egalitarian forms of music making, reframing problematic hierarchies inherited from 19th century Europe? In this survey, students will investigate how 20th and 21st century American experimentalist composers engage with these questions — questions which are particularly pressing today. Students will examine how composers like John Cage, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Ornette Coleman, and Pauline Oliveros resisted stylistic, philosophical, and institutional conventions to form subversive creative and intellectual strands that continue to undergird the American musical landscape today. By examining networks of actors (composers, venues, critics, publications, performers, events) including groups such as the Sonic Arts Union, the Composers’ Collective, the Jazz Composer’s Guild, Wandelweiser, Fluxus, and Musica Elettronica Viva, students will explore the unique and complex topology of experimental music communities in the United States and the subversive threads that tie them together. Race, gender, class, and sexuality mark these networks, and will feature prominently in our analyses. Students will engage with sound/video recordings and primary source texts alongside contemporary scholarship including critical, ethnographic, and journalistic sources. There are no prerequisites required for this course, but HUMA UN1123 (“Music Humanities”) is highly recommended.

MUSI UN3400 Topics in Music and Society. 3 points.

Music Majors and Concentrators.

This course seeks to approach the study of music and society by comparatively studying repertories from different parts of the world, how the history of ideas and methods of studying such repertoires shaped them, the practices that constitute them and the ways they are understood and used by different peoples.  Central to this course is the interrelationship between the constitution of a repertoire and the history of the construction of knowledge about it.

MUSI GU4109 Music, Musicians and Mobility in the Early Modern Period. 3 points.

In the early modern period—here roughly limited to the fifteenth through early seventeenth century—the Western idea of the world underwent two contrasting, but equally fundamental shifts. On the one hand, the known world expanded in unprecedented and entirely unexpected ways. At the same time, on the other hand, Europe itself splintered dramatically along conflicting religious lines that would shape politics and warfare for centuries after, erecting barriers and boundaries where they previously did not exist. This course studies the effect of these changes on music, through the lens of mobility, understood in various ways, both social and physical.

MUSI GU4308 Theory and Analysis of Jazz and Improvisation. 3 points.

This course explores diverse approaches to analyzing jazz and improvisation.  Students will engage with analytical methods stemming from both scholars and improvisers, learn to apply traditional analytical approaches, examine critical issues underlying them, and develop new applications of heretofore underexamined ones.  We will focus alternatively on harmony, solos, interaction, cognition, rhythm, and pedagogy, among other issues, and the survey will afford students insight into the priorities, methodologies, outcomes, and shortcomings of each of them.  Additionally, the course covers theoretical texts produced by improvising musicians, as well as instances where improvisers engage with preexisting theoretical texts.  Finally, we will also examine intersections between identity—encompassing issues such as race, ethnicity, gender, and class among others—and music theory.  We will investigate characterizations of music theory, composition, and improvisation in terms of identity and suggest ways that we might incorporate the diverse range of theorists and analysts in our course into larger intellectual and musical histories. 

MUSI GU4319 Ear-Training VI. 1 point.

Advanced dictation, sight singing, and musicianship, with emphasis on 20th-century music.

This course is an introduction to a variety of key topics in the field of cognitive musicology, including human development, evolution, neural processing, embodied knowledge, memory and anticipation, cross-cultural perspectives, and emotions. The course explores recent research on these topics, as well as ways in which this research can be applied to music scholarship.

MUSI GU4406 Acoustic Ecologies. 3 points.

This course explores the relationship between music, sound and the environment from a cross cultural perspective. We will explore notions such as acoustic ecology, ambient sound, soundscape and acoustemology, ecomusicology and the relation between sound, climate change, and the anthropocene. We will also address how different cultures conceive of the changing relations between sounding and environment and how these are linked to decolonial struggles.  

MUSI GU4515 Conducting Music. 3 points.

Prerequisites: advanced music major and extensive contemporary music background.

Analysis of the modern repertory of contemporary music with directional emphasis on actual conducting preparation, beating patterns, rhythmic notational problems, irregular meters, communication, and transference of musical ideas. Topics will include theoretical writing on 20th-century conducting, orchestration, and phrasing.

MUSI GU4630 Recorded Sound. 3 points.

Prerequisites: The instructor's permission.

As music moves into the 21st century, we find ourselves surrounded by an ever-evolving landscape of technological capability. The world of music, and the music industry itself, is changing rapidly, and with that change comes the opening – and closing – of doorways of possibility.  What does this shift mean for today’s practicing artist or composer?   With big label recording studios signing and nurturing fewer and fewer artists, it seems certain that, today, musicians who want to record and distribute their music need to be able to do much of the recording and production work on their own.   But where does one go to learn how to do this – to learn not only the “how to” part of music production, but the historical underpinnings and the development of the music production industry as well?  How does one develop a comprehensive framework within which they can place their own artistic efforts?  How does one learn to understand what they hear, re-create what they like and develop their own style?


This class, “Recorded Sound,” aims to be the answer.  It’s goal is to teach artists how to listen critically to music from across history and genres in order to identify the production techniques that they hear, and reproduce those elements using modern technology so they can be incorporated into the artist’s own musical works.
