Landscape and Soundscape

Landscape and Soundscape
This course will be held at Trinchera Ranch in southern Colorado. We will focus on musical engagements with environmental implications to explore, both critically and creatively, musical forms and related media that are shaped by a culture’s local landscapes and environmental understandings. Area studies include Tuva/Mongolia, Ghana, the Caribbean, and Australia. We will directly engage with the surrounding landscape of Trinchera Ranch and the diverse local cultural approaches to it via the arts (music, dance, ceremony, and art). No musical background is necessary, but students should expect to participate actively in various forms of music, dance, and outdoor activities. (Approval Required)
