MUSIC 2701

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

This course considers both music and digital games in light of their playability. It aims to provide students with critical frameworks for addressing the diverse roles played by music in digital games as well as the ways in which playing digital games can be considered a musical activity. Focusing on games across an array of genres ranging from first-person shooters to rhythm-action titles, the course will introduce students to recent scholarship on digital games from multiple disciplinary angles. No formal musical training is necessary, but suitably qualified students may take the course as a 3000-level elective by signing up for MUSIC 3901 and completing additional research components involving the analysis of specific soundtracks and/or performances.

When Offered Spring.

Comments Majors may enhance this course with additional content and an extra credit by enrolling concurrently in MUSIC 3901.
