Lecture: MW1-2.30 (E15-314)
Students will learn foundational practices of live DJ mixing and explore a chosen contemporary or historical dance scene from around the world. Lectures will examine the evolution of the craft and technologies of the DJ. Students will have access to equipment for practice. Assignments include writing and recording a presentation based on historical research and interviews, as well as participation in an end-of-semester performance.
No prior experience is necessary, but students must sustain interest in some form of popular dance music, broadly defined.
