MPZ, or Music Program Zero, was a(n) experiment. Was a musical thinker. Done by Ben Boretz, Many/Multi misc. music and mediaculture. Experimentation and combination yes at Bard College. Make you think/or not-think. To do, to-do, ta da - a discontinued department even more or just as self-reflexive as the anthropology one.
Had its own, often irritating, writing style that deconstructed words about equally as often as it constructed new ones.
Music Program Zero, a program at Bard College, started as an experimental music program as Boretz divorced from the more traditional music department. It developed into something almost cult-like - with a small group of students doing things that many people didn't understand, and treading the avant-garde line of challengingorselfindulgentstupid?
