The final project constitutes two parts:
1.a presentation of a 60 minute radio show about music in the last century, based on a playlist in which the works are connected contextually. There should be at least 5 recordings in a playlist,  with a maximum duration of 52 minutes of audio. 8 minutes of the hour should be made of presentation of the works, discussion of the concept, etc. by the presenters. The contextual connection should ideally be one  informing music made in the last century as we have been discussing them in class.
2. The contextual linkage will then serve as a topic for a five page paper (minimum), in which the music playlist will illustrate the concept as a set of examples. The paper is a research paper; concepts employed must either be in common use in musicological vocabulary or defined carefully, and assertions need to be backed by citations.
