M-LT 71334 - History of Music Theory
Despite centuries of discourse music’s power remains a mystery. To understand its principles, mathematicians have calculated the ratios of pitch. To make sense of its effect on us, philosophers have sought to grasp the meaning of sound within the universe. For our enjoyment, performers continue to entertain and sooth their audiences. All the while, theorists have spent their time understanding how all of these elements of music might be brought together and explained. This course will investigate the different ways in which music has been the subject of interest to writers in the earliest formation of Western music theory.
