Description:
In this module we investigate some of the group theoretical tools that music theorists have developed in the past 30 years to find good ways of hearing particular works of music. Group theory is just one conceptual category that listeners, composers, and performers can use to make sense of a work of art and to communicate ways of hearing to others.
