Gordon Thompson, Zankel 215
Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:10-12:00

An exploration of the relationship between music and the various media through which we consume and discuss music. Among the questions we will consider are...
  1. What does music mean?
  2. How can music shape our interpretations of other expressive media?
  3. What is the purpose of a review?
  4. What is the function of a reviewer?
  5. What role (if any) does censorship have in how we have access to music?
  6. Who owns music?
In our exploration, we will be talking with Julianne Jordan (Music Soup), Nathan Barr (television and film composer), Jody Klein (CEO of ABKCO Music), Matthew Moore (Director, Business & Legal Affairs at Broadcast Music, Inc.), and Jayson Greene (Managing Editor, eMusic). Among the topics we will be reading about and discussing are semiotics, censorship, and copyright.
