Music: From Science to Creative Process

Music. Is it just a combination of diverse frequencies, or a companion, a guide through our everyday life? In reality, we are surrounded by sound and music all the time, the relentless soundscape influencing our everyday life, sometimes without us realising it. Why does music exist? Do we need it?

In the first part of our course, we will delve into the conceptualization of music through the lens of Ethnomusicology. This will help us understand music from historical, social, cultural and anthropological points of view. With the help of psychology, we will briefly question the bounds to which music affects us individually and attempt to put it in the context of cultural heritage.

Understanding the theoretical basis of music’s place in society and comprehending its full impact is essential to prepare for the practical side of music making. What does it mean to be a musician, to create music?

In part two of the course, we will write a song together. We will look at different songwriting techniques, lyricism and the basics of rhythm, melody and harmony on a level that will bring us all together. We will prove music is for everyone and everyone can participate.
