MUS 105 - Improvisation Ensemble

0 or 2 credits
Rooted in electronic music and improvisation pioneer Pauline Oliveros’ practice of Deep Listening, the Improvisation Ensemble will explore a variety of approaches to creating music spontaneously. No particular style (e.g., Jazz) is given a privileged role. Each session will focus on a different area of improvisation, including sonic meditations, graphic scores, free music, and interdisciplinary collaboration with dance and film.  Students develop the ability to make musical decisions, take risks and develop flexibility for unexpected situations. All sound-making means are acceptable, including vocal, acoustic, electro-acoustic and electronic instruments, together with computer technology, as in recently evolving laptop orchestras. Grade pass/fail. Instructor permission required. Offered every fall and spring. Grade pass/fail May be repeated 2 times for a total of 4 credits Instructor permission required Offered every fall and spring
