Art of the MOOC: Experiments with Sound


Art, Art History and Visual Studies



8 weeks



Learn about diverse musical traditions, sound art, sonic experimentation, and acoustic phenomena in everyday life. Designed by artist and Duke professor, Pedro Lasch, and UdK composer Mathias Hinke, this course is also co-taught by scholar and musician Jace Clayton (DJ Rupture) and curator Candice Hopkins (Documenta 14). The lectures link major artistic developments of recent decades to wider ideas about sound in specific social and spatial contexts. Students of this course also have the opportunity to try their hand at their own sound interventions and musical compositions.
