MUSI-1125B Experimental Music

This course offers a survey of the most relevant proposals and languages in regard to the development of experimental and electrophonic music from the start of the XXth century to the first years of the XXIst. New forms of sound expression are produced as a response to the questions posed by creators against all the traditional components which constitute a musical act. From this perspective, all music should be subject to constant experimentation, proposing new codes and elements of appreciation and visualization of musical / extra-musical space-time and structure starting from what is known. Course contents present the principles developed from electrophonic and experimental music. These are applied both to specifically sound-based works as well as to a variety of forms of expression mainly in performing and visual arts which are included in the repertoire to be studied.
