Building O Room 1.62A

Inspired by recent innovative responses in philosophy to our rapidly changing, interconnected worlds, this seminar will open up a conversation about music beyond the past and present. What new critical languages and conceptual templates will function for music in the face of our rapidly changing musical realities? How do we proceed beyond anthropomorphic representation in our musical languages? Is the question ‘what is music?’ still relevant? Or, as proponents of the new materialist philosophy would want to suggest, is it more productive to consider what music does rather than what music means?
