Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studios extend a student's cross-school experience from Core Studio up into their upper division years. 3 units of Interdisciplinary Studio are required of all majors and must be completed in the junior or senior year. This advanced level studio is thematic in nature. Technical demonstrations are paired with thoughtful readings, seminar discussions and ambitious projects. Collaboration, experimentation and presentation skills are developed in concert with critical thinking.Section DescriptionWe experience many forms of conflict in our personal, social and political lives. "Dissonance – Music and Conflict" explores how we integrate our experience of conflict in our creative work by applying Musical ideas into our visual art, design and writing practices. We will learn how Music envelops various forms of conflicts and surpasses the impact of the clash, and create in-class, site-specific and socially engaged projects both individually and collaboratively. The interdisciplinary nature of Music lets us research and practice a wide variety of activities including performance, video, sound, multimedia installation, spatial design and public space interventions. Each student is expected to produce projects which are personally rooted and socially connective as Music is. Former musical training is not necessary. Topics include psychology, politics, storytelling, social practice, public space, perception, body, praying and destruction. This class is suited for students in any program of any division at CCA.
