Credits: 4

This course focuses on the role that contemporary music, music video, and social media plays in nonviolent civil resistance and social justice movements with case studies from around the globe (including Iran, Ukraine, and China). We will explore how music works within these movements and the information environment which is critical to any nonviolent civil resistance movement, and discuss these issues with guest artists (such as Arash Sobhani, Youssra El-Hawary, and Carla Dirlikov Canales) who are actively engaged in these efforts. Students will remix songs and create original video, video remixes, and visualizations in relation to contemporary movements, and learn how to utilize social media as a distribution channel and amplifier of the message. Students with interest and some background in music production, sound art, music video, Djing, remixing, and art for social change are encouraged to take this course. Prerequisite: LMUS 2053 Sound and Technology, or permission of the instructor.
