Vibrant Arts Scene at Stanford
The first time I watched a movie after taking the Music, Technology, and Culture class, I really felt like I understood the message of each scene so much better as I became aware of diegetic and non-diegetic sound. I was amazed by how much I was able to apply what we learned in class to watching films more critically in everyday life.
