Music in 12 Parts

Fall 2022

Taught By: Andrew Sterman

Section: A

CRN: 15039

Credits: 2

Philip Glass’s masterwork Music in Twelve Parts is a cornerstone of the composer’s work and for the performance practice of the Philip Glass Ensemble’s repertory. This course explores the history, concepts, and details of this four-hour piece (composed between 1971-1974). Students in the class will design their own exercises to meet the rhythmic, metric, interactive, and endurance challenges found within 12 Parts. We will then compose new arrangements of sections of Music in 12 for performance by the ad hoc ensemble of class members. Honing the performance skills necessary for Music in 12 has a special way of contributing to deeper understanding and performance of many other musical practices. The course is taught by Andrew Sterman, member of the Philip Glass Ensemble since 1991. This course is open to graduate students and to undergraduate seniors and juniors by permission.
