MA in Composition
Course Description

MUS 248
Post-Tonal Theory and Analysis
Fall

An intensive study of theoretical issues associated with music from the early 20th century to the most recent experimental works. Emphasis is placed on developing and learning analytical methods and compositional techniques applicable to post-tonal music (such as pitch-class sets, centricity and important referential collections, invariance, combinatoriality, and integral serialism). The structure of the course may vary from a focus on a specific analytical method to analyses of a series of works approached through different theoretical perspectives.
Offered every other year beginning 2019-20.
