Music in the Sixties (MUSC2622)

UNIT OF STUDY

The very term 'The Sixties' has lived on in myth as signifying a radical break with the past in the arts, literature and music. While these years saw a great change and social upheaval, this subject will seek link to the music of the era to much longer trajectories of social, political and aesthetic change. We will examine a wide range of music drawn from popular traditions, jazz and the avant garde. No formal music training is necessary.
