Download Student Creative Assignment Collection (11.4 MB)


Student creative assignment collection is inspired by the idea that music can be assigned broader symbolic roles in society and culture, roles in which music itself is taken to symbolize values, beliefs and even passions of the most general nature.

Students enrolled in the course Anthropology of Music came from a variety of disciplines and created their unique interpretation of Jazz that reflects their personal understanding of jazz music as a symbol of human modern thought, metaphor for democracy and freedom of expression.
