From the Phonograph to AI: A History of Recorded Sound (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Monika Schoop

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 12:15 - 13:45 | 16.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 16.207 Musik

Inhalt: This course offers an in-depth exploration into the histories of sound recording and recorded sound. Zooming in on its emergence in the late 19th century, we will commence with an examination of the cultural origins of sound reproduction. Inquiring into different technologies and formats—from the phonograph to records and tapes to digital formats—will then allow us to unravel the complex relationship between technology, music, and human culture. Going beyond the confines of technological determinism, we will scrutinize the reciprocal influence of recording technology on music production and listening, as well as the converse impact. Engaging in critical reflection on assertions of dematerialization in the digital age, we will also assess the environmental implications associated with recorded sound. In the final segment of the course, students will have the opportunity to select a research topic inspired by the course's content. They will craft an essay outline and receive feedback, ultimately culminating in the development of comprehensive essays.
