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 W3351 Music and the Brain from Descartes to Helmholtz. 3 points.

Priority given to music majors and concentrators.

Prerequisites: no prerequisites required.

This undergraduate seminar offers historical and critical perspectives on music and the brain between approximately 1660 and 1870. Through engaging with scholarship and primary sources from disciplines including musicology, philosophy, and the history of science and medicine, we will focus on the role of music in shifting understandings of mental states, aesthetic ideals, methods of treatment, and questions of sensation, attention, and cognition. We will examine the role of resonance and vibration in various models of mental activity, conceptualizations of music as a healing or destabilizing medium, as well as the role of musical instruments and sounds in different philosophical and physiological theories of the body. Based on our readings and investigations, students will develop new strategies for engaging with music from analytical, historical, and scientific perspectives. The course is intended to foster interdisciplinary engagement between musicology, the history of science and medicine, and disability studies, providing students with critical tools to examine constructions of music and the brain in various contexts.

MUSI UN2500 Women and Music. 3 points.

This course explores the relationship between women, music, and performance from a thematic and a cross-cultural perspective. 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 V3335 Analysis of Alternative Music. 3 points.

Corequisites: MUSI V3321 or equivalent.

In this highly participatory music theory seminar, we will analyze in depth some unusal patterns of harmony and melody across a range of alternative music: tracks by the alt-rock bands Radiohead and Portishead, the singer-songwriters Bjork and Sufjan Stevens, the "alt-classical" composer Max Richetr, and the alternative electronic artists Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Autechre. Student work will include weekly model compositions, and a final presentation and paper.

MUSI UN3635 The History of Music Production Techniques. 3 points.

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. How does one learn to understand what they hear, re-create what they like and develop their own style? This class, “The History and Techniques of Music Production,” 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 W4151 New York Avant-Gardes: Music and Performance Since 1950. 3 points.

Priority given to music majors and concentrators, and Music Department graduate students.

This course explores New York's avant-garde music scenes and networks since 1950. Examples are drawn from a wide range of music, including "downtown" minimalism, "uptown" serialism, free jazz, and punk rock. In addition to investigating the aesthetic and conceptual underpinnings of these genres, we will study their entwinement with venues and institutions such as the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, the Harlem Cultural Council, the Kitchen, the Black Arts Repertory Theatre and School, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and CBGB. We will have the chance to visit a number of these spaces. Although music will be our primary lens through which to study New York's postwar cultural life, we will also explore interconnections between music, visual art, and theater in Fluxus, intermedia, and performance art movements. As such, this course is heavily interdisciplinary, and we will read widely in musicology, art history, literary theory, media studies, sociology, and performance studies. Each week's discussion will be guided by these readings, as well as by in-class and out-of-class listening. Musicians/composers/artists to be studied include John Cage, Meredith Monk, Ornette Coleman, Milton Babbitt, Laurie Anderson, the Afro-American Singing Theater, La Monte Young, Robert Ashley, Philip Glass, the Velvet Underground, Joan La Barbara, Anthony Braxton, Elliott Carter, the Talking Heads, John Zorn, Richard Foreman, Robert Wilson, and Julius Eastman.

MUSI W4405 Music and Language. 3 points.

Prerequisite: music major or instructor's permission. A survey of 20th-century literatures on the music/language relationship. Emphasis on semiotic and social-scientific paradigms.

MUSI G4425 Sounding Islam. 3 points.

The objective of this course is to explore the relationship between sound, music and Islam and, in doing so, to focus on a philosophy of listening (sama‘) which is deeply embedded in the experiential. The course aims to analyze how sound and music directly or indirectly associated with Islam are produced, circulated, and listened to by a wide variety of audiences in local and transnational settings; to explore the ways in which multiple sonic dimensions of Islam have affected the public sphere in different historical moments and contexts (particular in relation to ideas about nationalism, secularism and modernity); and to examine the effect of these sonic dimensions on Muslim and non-Muslim listeners in a local and a transnational perspective.

MUSI UN3036 Schubert's Romantic Cycles. 3 points.

This course offers an intensive study of Schubert’s cyclic music written for chamber performance, 1822-1828. A major composer whose short life-span and delayed posterity skewed the trajectory of musical Romanticism during and after Beethoven, Schubert wrote a string of masterworks in his later years, including the String Quartets in D minor (“Death and the Maiden”) and G major, the dark song cycle Die Winterreise, the Impromptus and last three Sonatas for piano, the String Quintet in C, the Fantasy in F minor, and the two Piano Trios. His notably artistic friendship circle, his tangential relationship to patronage, and his extraordinary cultivation of chamber genres (including the Lied), reveal him to have had a Viennese career during the 1820s very different from that of Beethoven at the same time. Schubert’s illness and diagnosis with syphilis in late 1822 produced a crisis of creativity still relevant for scholars and students today, as the literature reveals: analyzing biography and art under the sign of death produces tensions we will explore in the course.

MUSI UN3170 20th Century Music. 3 points.

Prerequisites: HUMA UN1123 or the instructor's permission.

A multicultural and international consideration of composers, improvisors, sounds, practices and social issues in the “art” music of "the long 20th century"--in Western classical music and its intersections with jazz, popular music, and experimental media.   The course will engage issues of form, technique, genre, style, canon, media reception, constructions of gender and race, cultural nationalisms, the impact of transnationalism and globalization, debates around art and the vernacular, and the practice of listening.

MUSI UN3183 Film Music: The History and Aesthetics of the Hollywood Film Score. 3 points.

Not offered during 2017-18 academic year.

Prerequisites: HUMA UN1123 or instructor's permission.

This course will introduce students to the history of film music by concentrating on the emergence of the “classical style” of the Golden Age Hollywood film score (in the 1930s/1940s) and the various ways post-Golden-Age film makers and composers have challenged or returned to the styles and practices of that era. Simultaneously participants will be exposed to the rich theoretical literature on film music, looking at topics such as music’s role in the creation of narrative and meaning and the politics of audiovisual representation.


Topics in the course will include: film music’s relationship with earlier forms of musical media; music’s narrative function; music’s relationship with other aspects of the soundtrack; film music production within the wider film industry; film’s changing sound technologies; leitmotifs and topic theory; musical visualization; montage aesthetics; musical modernism in film; depictions of race, gender and sexuality; feminist, Marxist, and psychoanalytic approaches; music, nostalgia, and fantasy; and the use of pre-existing music in film.

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 GU4375 Music and Madness. 3 points.

Prerequisites: None.

This undergraduate seminar offers historical and critical perspectives on music as a cause, symptom, and treatment of madness. We will begin by analyzing the stakes of studying the history of music and madness in light of methodologies from history, ethnography, and disability studies. We will then apply these frameworks to an investigation of selected topics in the histories of music and madness, as well as more recent ethnographies of the role of music in conjunction with altered mental states. In doing so, we will examine the interplay of embodied experience with respect to composed and improvised music as well as the soundscapes of religious rituals and trance states. The course is intended to foster interdisciplinary engagement between students interested in music, history, and medicine, and to provide them with critical tools to examine constructions of music and madness in social, scientific, and historical contexts. No musical background is necessary to participate.
