  • About the Department of Postmodern Music
  • The Department of Postmodern Music was established in 2000, based on the great philosophy of creating the "new music of the 21st century" by combining western classical music, traditional oriental music, popular music and jazz. As its name, "postmodernism" implies, the department emphasizes the popularity and practicality of music. To achieve this, it focuses on progressive, free and passionate musical experiments in curriculum, department, and department clubs. Students come to have semi-professional knowledge and learning experience regarding music, interest in various social and cultural phenomena related to music, the passionate and enterprising spirit of experimentation in their own world of music, and patience to withstand the highly intensive learning process.
