Global Connections: The Harmonic Concepts of the Music of the 1970s
Global Initiatives is pleased to announce a special Berklee Global Connections webinar presented in partnership with Rec Música Centro de Estudios Musicales in Mexico City.
Berklee’s Harmony and Jazz Composition Department’s newest course, The Harmonic Concepts of the Music of the 1970s, deeply examines the musical characteristics found in perhaps the most musically influential decade in recent memory. As a Harmony course, the primary focus of research into these topics centers on Core Harmony, with a special emphasis on topics found in modernist compositional techniques. Housed within the Professional Writing and Music Technology Division, this course also incorporates other topics including arranging, recording, and performance practice elements. This session will present preliminary findings from the course.
Speakers: Rick McLaughlin, associate professor of harmony Tom Hojnacki, assistant chair of harmony
