Prospects of Recording

Fall 2019

Taught By: Robert Hurwitz

Section: A

CRN: 3492

Credits: 2

This course, taught by the president of Nonesuch Records, examines the issues facing musicians as they enter into the marketplace. It focuses on an age-old question: how to navigate between the worlds of art and commerce? The title refers to a 1964 article by the legendary Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, one of the few musicians at that time to think about music in relationship to technological changes as they affected culture. This course explores the creative life and commercial forces in today's culture, and the role of media companies and modern technology in limiting or enhancing the abilities of creative artists to envision their careers and to reach their audiences.
