Introduction to Korean Music: P'ungmul 2
About the Course:This is an introductory course on p'ungmul (Korean traditional drumming). Our main focus this semester will be on learning to play samulnori (which is a more performance based--as opposed to participatory--form of Korean drumming); however, we will also continue to learn more garaks (rhythms) from Pilbong gut, which we learned during the fall semester in 2007. We will continue to explore the social, political, and religious ideology that lies behind p'ungmul and other related Korean folk music such as minyo (folk song) and t'alchum (masked dance drama) as well as take a peek at p'ungmul in the context of contemporary Korean and Korean-American society. We will learn that p’ungmul is a form of expressing feeling through music, song, and dance.
Come and drum! :]
How to Enroll:
Anyone with any sort of previous experience with p'ungmul is welcome. Priority will be given to individuals who were enrolled in P'ungmul 1 last semester, individuals who were turned away from the DECAL last semester but came out to at least one Saturday practice, and spring admits who have an interest in p'ungmul. If you came out to one of EGO's saturday practices last semester or if you have ever played p'ungmul, you are a qualified candidate.
Due to a limited number of instruments, approximately 25 students will be accepted into the course. If students have their own instruments, we will be able to accept more individuals.
Please note that knowledge of the Korean language is NOT a prerequisite for the course.The course control number (CCN) will be distributed on the first day of class on Wednesday, February 6, 2008. The class will commence at 7:30 PM on the 6th floor of 2223 Fulton Street.
