Reception of music in cross-cultural perspective

Reception of music in cross-cultural perspective

Introduction

This course will deal with reception of music from a number of different perspectives, all of which involve consideration of cultural contexts outside Europe. We will consider reception both in general, cross-cultural perspective and in the specific case of Sundanese wayang golék (rod-puppet theatre), and we will consider the influence of both social and technological change on music and the way it is received.

This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 3 study in Arts and Humanities [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
