Learning outcomes

The course aims to introduce students to the issues and methods concerning the study of the relationship between music and media, focusing especially on the technologies used to fix, transmit, read and listen to music in the western world from the Middle Ages to the present. On successful completion of the module, students will have acquired extensive knowledge of the material and technological features of music media; they will have also developed the skills necessary for analyzing the cultural, social and ideological aspects of music media.

Program

Writing, reading, listening to music from the Middle Ages to the digital era. The course offers a history of music through its media, focusing especially on their material and technological features, their uses, and their social, cultural and ideological aspects, starting from the oldest documented forms of mediatization (manuscripts, prints) and ending with the most recent ones (digital audiovisual media).

The course includes audio and video examples.
