Course Number: PY.610.639
Professor: Dr. Paul Sommerfeld
Credits: 3

Music defines our media experiences. Musical themes can likewise go beyond their original audiovisual framework to operate as musical-cultural texts. This online, asynchronous course uses music as a tool to investigate musical branding and the creation of meaning in the media we consume every day. Through close viewings and listenings of films, television episodes, video games, commercials, and other media, this course will explore the meaning(s) these media construct and acquire as both they and their music are re-used and re-purposed in multimedia franchises that expand their content into myriads of installments and platforms.
