Turn It Up!
This course is going to examine how sound in used across a range of media. We will examine how the authors, musicians, and directors employ sound in a variety of ways to enhance their art. Some texts we will look at could include music videos, short films, full length films, commercials etc. This is likely a great course for musicians, metal heads, rock stars, rap gods, crooners, prince and princesses of pop, godfathers of funk, all manner of R&B royalty, or simply people who bob their head to elevator muzak.
Also, in a response to student feedback, the latter part of this block will be specifically dedicated to allowing students time to finish those pesky year-long assessments.
