A History of Recordings, Radio, and the Transmission of Sound

Description Override

Selected Topics in Music: A History of Recordings, Radio, and the Transmission of Sound (1). This class starts with the premise that “The point of recording and reproduction is not to mirror sound but to shape it actively (Jonathan Sterne).” From Edison cylinders and 78s to mp3s and streaming services, the medium of recorded sound and the transmission of disembodied voices has radically and actively transformed, distorted, and helped us to reimagine our sense of self, community, and aesthetic and social possibilities. In addition to surveying the evolution and development of sound technologies (those that record, transmit, and playback sound), this class examines the impact that these changing technologies have on the conception, creation, distribution, policing and evaluation of sound and music.
