Musik und Politik (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Monika Schoop

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 10:15 - 11:45 | 03.04.2023 - 07.07.2023 | C 16.207 Musik | C16.207 ...

Inhalt: In this course, we will investigate the complex interplay between music and politics, focusing on selected musical examples from various geographical and historical contexts. We will explore how music intersects with politics, examining themes as wide-ranging as music's role in electoral politics, party politics, populism, and far-right movements. We will further examine music in the context of social movements, and in particular as a form of resistance against repressive regimes. Focusing on a wide range of case studies, we will address questions such as: - How do politicians use music to promote themselves and their political agendas? - How is music employed to mobilize people? - How does it function as a tool for protest? How can music create spaces for free expression and dissent? And last but not least the overarching question: What makes music political? Participants are encouraged to contribute examples of their own choice to the in-class discussions.

What's (the) original? – The phenomena of cover, remix and answer song (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Eva Schuck

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 12:15 - 13:45 | 05.04.2023 - 05.07.2023 | C 16.207 Musik | C16.207 ...

Inhalt: We are going to listen to covers, remixes, and answer songs as well as their original versions to analyse and discuss the differences between them. Moreover, we are going to approach these phenomena from a theoretical perspective: what makes a cover good or bad? Where does a cover end and plagiarism begin? What is the difference between cover and remix? ... Finally, you will have the opportunity to address the field from a practical point of view and create your own cover, remix, or answer song.
