Musical Borrowing

Spring 2019

Taught By: Ivan Raykoff

Section: A

CRN: 7041

Credits: 4

This music history/theory course explores how frequently existing musical works have been appropriated and recomposed into new works, and how these adaptations challenge our conventional notions of originality and authenticity. The course provides a historical perspective on musical borrowing from the Renaissance through 19th-century paraphrases and 20th-century cover versions to sampling today. It also explores some of the cultural, philosophical, legal, and economic considerations around the phenomenon of musical borrowing. A basic knowledge of music theory and an ability to read music notation are helpful but not required for this course.
