    The Exploding Piano - The piano has long been regarded as a laboratory for musical experimentation and the last 100 years have been notable for the degree to which musicians and artists of all kinds have felt free to experiment. This course seeks to examine some of the big musical innovations of the 20th and 21st centuries as reflected in the piano music of the time. Each course meeting consists of a mix of lecture and listening with some examples performed live in class. The course strives to broaden students understanding of modern music and emphasizes critical listening, reading and writing.

      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
