Music NOW: Entertainment and Exploration
Music NOW is a peek into the vast world of contemporary classical music. This discussion will explain various aesthetic trends in composition since World War II until the most recent music being created by the young and upcoming composers of today. We will listen to examples, talk about the philosophical and political implications tied to those examples, and gain a better understanding of the composer-performer-listener relationship.
Whether you are an experienced concert goer, or if you have avoided experimental music because it seems unapproachable - Music, NOW will expose you to new sounds and explain their relevance in this world in a discussion that celebrates music, noise and art.
