  • By watching and listening to film soundtracks, as presented through more than 200 film clips, students perform extensive visual and audio analysis of how music contributes to narrative cinematic arts. Students will be connecting visual and audio structural elements of film as they are related to important psychological principles such as humans having bias toward predictability, especially when it comes to musical expectations. Combined interdisciplinary concepts of psychology, music, and film are used to achieve the learning outcomes.

  • Combining diverse cultures, ethnicities, disciplines, and ideas that shape today’s society, musical improvisation represents one of the essential characteristics of this global convergence. We live in a world rich with imaginative expressions that often transcend established musical styles and classifications. Every computer, smart phone, or tablet come today with many preinstalled musicmaking tools, or apps that can be downloaded for free or a minimal fee. With ever-expanding computer technology, electronic ways of making music have been completely democratized. Just as anyone can use word processing software, anyone can use pretty much with same ease the eMusic creation software, and improvisation is at the heart of this new musical paradigm that uniquely reflects contemporary life.
