LIKE A VERSION: COVER SONGS AND MORE
A polka version of The Doors, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” by Tuvan throat-singers, big band jazz Nirvana, the many versions of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the folk transformations of “Delia’s Gone” – this class will explore multiple versions of the same song or composition, including cover versions, parodies, revisions and orchestrations of classical works, the “folk process,” jazz explorations, and re-mixes. Be prepared to listen to and discuss versions of a variety of music to better understand the basic elements of each song or piece, and the many ways that music can be transformed.
