Description
Musical "mashups" are not the domain of YouTube alone, but a perfectly period practice! In this class, we will explore "quodlibet" (lit. "what pleases"), the practice of combining multiple existing melodies into a new piece of music, by listening to numerous examples. No knowledge of music theory is required.
