Description of module content:

This module will consolidate and enhance your reflective, analytic and critical examination skills, and encourage you to challenge perceptions related to music, culture and identity. You will explore theories and practices of musical endeavour, through the lens of 3 key topics: (1) Globalisation and capitalism, (2) the concept of creativity and genius, (3) conflicts of individualism and normative behaviour.
Critical reflection will play a key role as you consider each topic, challenge the assumptions and received knowledge you may have, and analyse the impact on your own creative endeavours. Lectures and/or workshops will introduce concepts from a theoretical perspective, experiment with them in practical contexts, and encourage critical reflection through discussion and debate.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Debate sociological issues that impact on musical practice
LO2: Explore, through practical application, the effect of cultural influence on your own practice.
LO3: Examine and engage with different musical cultures
LO4: Critically reflect on your own musical and cultural influences and outputs
