Program Description

How do we experience language in music, both as composers and listeners? What kind of meaning exists in words that are sung/uttered in music? Is it a different kind of meaning than the meaning found in words used for everyday communication? Is it possible that there is a better word for a word that is sung (for instance, "song-word")? We will explore these questions by listening to all kinds of vocal music that utilizes conventional words, made-up words, multi-lingual texts, mumbles, babbles, sighs, etc. This is an online course, but it involves real-time sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's not a "download these videos and watch them at your leisure" type of thing - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions. We've tried to make this remote session as close as possible to the experience of an onsite workshop at CAMP. Full details:
