Master Class with Michael Martone: The Four C’s: Context, Cutting, Compression, and Collage

[img_assist|nid=9967|title=Michael Martone|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=100|height=67]This course will study the form of modern composition known as collage.  Beginning with its roots in the cut paper and paste works, the invention of montage and cutting in film, and the spread of syncopation and jazz, collage (as an organizing structure which resists and/or amplifies linear narration) became an energetic and fruitful form for poets and prose writers.  This class will seek to replicate some principles of collage construction, with readings and a variety of work produced in class.  The discussion will touch on such subjects as the hand-made and machine -made, counterfeiting, found work, gestalt theory, Ives and MTV, military camouflage and its connection to Cubism, the remote control, jazz quotation and hip-hop sampling, the card catalogue, encyclopedias, and indexing in general.
