Learning objectives
In the spirit of the so-called "applied musicology", the lab provides a practical viewpoint for the students' historical-theoretical knowledge, gained over the university years. On the basis of a specific musicological project (which differs every year), students will develop professional potentialities that are requested from the job market in areas such as media entertainement and performative arts, and will also solidify their cultural capital for the realm of the humanities.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the lab, students will be able to transform their own historical-theoretical knowledge into practical skills, aiming at an informed use of digital technologies and at becoming familiar with a variety of media. In the context of a performative/organizational project to be fulfilled throughout the lav, this class positions itself in the realm of "practice-led research" and the Digital Humanities.
