Rhythm in its broadest sense in the way sound is organized over time--and considering that music is a time-based art form, a thorough understanding of rhythm and how it functions in various contexts is essential for the composer. In "Rhythm", taught in Fall 2020, the focus was primarily on rhythm in metrical context. "Rhythm II: Beyond the Barline" will focus on rhythm in non-metrical and hybrid contexts. We'll examine all kinds of ways of notating rhythm so that it can be understood by the performer and discuss how best to determine the most effective way of convening ideas to the performer. Original work for the class will include both pitched and non pitched assignments. Students may enroll in this course regardless of whether they took the Fall 2020 class.
