Historical Foundations of Music Technology
MUS- N 523/ 3 Cr.
This course analyzes and evaluates concepts, events, designs, and creative works that have served as catalysts in the progression of music technology over time. It also explores historical paradigms that helped shape the progression of technology in music and related fields. Treatment is given to a variety of movements, music-forms, communities and entitles, that contributed to their age through technological, conceptual, and artistic innovation. Class discussions and blogs will engage the studied content, particularly as it relates to current trends, thus addressing the IUPUI Graduate Principle of Learning that states: 'students will critically and creatively solve problems in their field of study'. Through the study of the past, the class will develop rationales for new and emerging technologies that relate to the expression of music.
