MUT 212 - Music Theory 4

The fourth semester of the four-semester Music Theory sequence. A grounding in the materials of 20th and 21st century music from analytical, compositional, and listening perspectives. Students will undertake analyses and model composition exercises involving: modes, synthetic scales, extended tertian harmony, poly harmony, rhythm and meter, atonality, twelve-tone serialism, chance music, and minimalism. As students learn the abstract theoretical concepts, they will be guided to connect them to real music through copious listening, singing, and transcription exercises. Special attention will be paid to the historical contexts of the various techniques and styles covered during the semester, and students will also attend and critique in writing two performances of contemporary art music.
