Class is in session for Lana Del Rey followers. New York College’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music has launched a brand new course for this fall centered across the singer-songwriter.
The 2-credit course, titled “Subjects in Recorded Music: Lana Del Rey,” is taught by journalist and creator Kathy Iandoli and can run from October 20 to December 8, in response to Variety. In accordance with the course description, “Over the course of eight critically-acclaimed albums, the six-time Grammy nominated artist has launched a tragic core, melancholic, and baroque model of dream pop that in flip helped shift and reinvent the sound (and temper) of mainstream music past the 2010s. By way of her arresting visuals and her thematic consideration to psychological well being and tales of poisonous, broken love, Del Rey supplied a brand new platform for artists of all genders to create ‘anti-pop’ works of substance that would dwell in a mainstream as soon as categorized as bubblegum.”
The course may even study Del Rey’s relationship to feminism, musical influences and connection to social justice actions.
Earlier this yr, the Clive Davis Institute additionally provided a course on Taylor Swift, which delved into the famous person’s journey as a artistic music entrepreneur, the legacy of pop and nation songwriters which have influenced the star and the way discourses of youth and girlhood are exploited within the media and music business.
