Syllabus Update

The new syllabus and schedule of classes is now available here. Please remember that our class will be meeting in ACE 201 from 12:30 to 3:20 PM.

Also, as I was preparing for this week’s class, I was struck by the similarity between the improvisatory role that an early film organist played to that of the dalang (puppeteer) in central Javanese wayang, except that the dalang is expected to perform over an entire night. For more information about this, look the description of gamelan in Oxford Music Online.
