Interdisciplinary Approaches to Musical Time

This course is an interdisciplinary exploration of three broad topics concerning music in relation to time.

Music as Architecture: the creation of musical shapes in time;
Music as Memory: how musical understanding depends upon memory and reminiscence, with attention to analysis of musical structures; and
Time as the Substance of Music: how different disciplines such as philosophy and neuroscience view the temporal dimension of musical processes and/or performances.

The online content includes videos of two of the classes and the three forums/concerts that formed an important part of the course. From MIT OpenCourseWare
