Postgraduate course in Critical Theory and Music Technology

From next year, I will teach a newly created postgraduate course on Critical Theory and Music Technology. The 15 points course can be taken by any students enrolled in a postgraduate degree in Music at Waipapa Taumata Rau (The University of Auckland).

MUS 759 Special Topic: Critical Theory and Music Technology

A critical investigation into modern-day music learning, production and consumption. Issues arising in a music landscape mediated by technology and hegemonic political economy will be examined with a focus on the interrogation of power relations using a social justice lens. Topics may include technology in music education, music and Artificial Intelligence, music decolonisation, and music streaming platforms.
