    that our learning will be collaborative since everyone has their own story about what kind of music might move them However this course also reaches the layperson with little or no experience with this genre What draws you to this subject area I bring over a decade of experience as an electronic musician dancer and scholar of music history As a teenager I was first exposed to the music of Stockhausen Kraftwerk Tangerine Dream Josh Wink Paul Oakenfold The Orb and Aphex Twin to name a few These formative experiences prompted me to ask philosophical questions that one commonly encounters in studying the history of classical music for example To illustrate how does one s national identity affect the way one writes music Why and how does this matter What goes into making a particular composition track a work of art Will this artist s work withstand the tests of time and endure beyond being just a one hit wonder I firmly believe that serious infectious art music takes many shapes and forms and is not confined to the orchestral concert hall We live in a day in age when skilled EDM artists Daft Punk and their recent soundtrack to Tron Legacy comes to mind are considered composers in their own right they draw upon advanced compositional techniques they think deeply about the music they write and they unite people around the world through creating positivity and community I am passionate about this music and its history and I devote a significant part of my activities as a classically trained musicologist to pursuing scholarship on EDM What do you hope students will learn from your course I hope that my students can enrich their understanding of music they are already familiar with as well as broaden their horizons with respect
