50 years ago, the friendly rivalry between musicians and turned 1965 into the most ground-breaking year in music history ever. It was the year rock and roll evolved into the premier art form of its time and accelerated the drive for personal freedom throughout the Western world. The feedback loop between the artists and their times ignited an unprecedented explosion of creativity. The Beatles made their first artistic statement with Rubber Soul and performed at Shea Stadium, the first rock concert to be held in a major American stadium. Bob Dylan released "Like a Rolling Stone" - the quintessential anthem of the year - and went electric at the Newport Folk Festival. The Rolling Stones' hit song "Satisfaction" catapulted the band to world-wide success. Fashion designer Mary Qaunt raised the hemlines of her skirts to above the knee, introducing the iconic miniskirt. This was not only the year of rock as new genres such as funk and psychedelia were born. Soul music became a prime force of desegregation as Motown crossed out of the R&B charts on to the top of the Billboard Top 100. Country music reached new heights with Nashville and the Bakersfield sound and competition between musicians coincided with seismic cultural shifts wrought by the Civil Rights Movement, psychedelics, and Vietnam. In 1965, Andrew Grant Jackson combines fascinating and often surprising personal stories with a panoramic historical narrative.

Activating Diverse Musical Creativities analyses the ways in which music programmes in higher education can activate and foster diverse musical creativities. It also demonstrates the relationship between musical creativities and entrepreneurship in higher education teaching and learning. These issues are of vital significance to contemporary educational practice and training in both university and conservatoire contexts, particularly when considered alongside the growing importance of entrepreneurship, defined here as a type of creativity, for successful musicians working in the 21st century creative and cultural industries. International contributors address a broad spectrum of musical creativities in higher education, such as improvisational creativity, empathic creativity and leadership creativity, demonstrating the transformative possibilities of embedding these within higher music education teaching and learning. The chapters explore the active practice of musical creativities in teaching and learning and recognize their mutual dependency. The contributors consider philosophical and practical concerns in their work on teaching for creativity in higher music education and focus on practices using imaginative approaches in order to make learning more interesting, effective and relevant.

  • Prélude à l'ivresse -- Vers le rêve (1872-1892 Des premières oeuvres à la Sonate n° 1) De l'art comme religion (Danses) -- Vers le charme (1892-1896 Sonates n° 1 et n° 2) De Chopin à lui-même (Études) -- Vers le souffle (1896-1902 Sonates n° 2 à 4) De l'aphorisme musical (Préludes) -- Vers l'extase (1902-1905 Sonates n° 4 à 5) De la surabondance (Poèmes) -- Vers la plénitude (1905-1909 Sonates n° 5 à 6) De l'ivresse théorique (Symphonies) -- Vers l'infini (1909-1913 Sonates n° 6à 10) Du mysticisme musical (Sonates) -- Vers railleurs (1913-1915 De la Sonate n° 10 aux oeuvres ultimes) De l'art total -- Au-delà de la flamme.
"L'oeuvre de Scriabine est l'une des plus originales de toute la musique ; totalement révolutionnaire, au même titre que celles de Schônberg, Bart6k, Prokofiev ou Stravinski, bousculant de manière irréversible la tonalité, inventant comme Chopin ses propres formes, développant une esthétique de la miniature en droite ligne des tentatives du dernier Liszt, exploitant des horizons harmoniques et des espaces sonores inédits dont Messiaen se souviendra, pour ne rien dire de Berg, Szymanowski ou de compositeurs plus proches de nous, tels Stockhausen ou Cage, Scriabine fait poser à la musique des questions qu'elle ne se posait pas avant lui. Créateur à la charnière du bousculement des mondes entre xix' et xx' siècles, partagé entre romantisme total et modernisme radical, mystique absolu et prophète d'un nouveau monde, Scriabine a fait de l'art une sorte de religion et d'initiation magique appelées à transformer la vie. Cent ans après sa mort, il est plus que jamais notre contemporain. Comme tous les volumes de la collection "Classica", ce Scriabine est enrichi d'un index, de repères bibliographiques et d'une discographie."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Interpréter la musique du XXe siècle -- L'interprète face aux innovations de la création -- Nouveaux matériaux et nouvelles techniques d'exécution -- La notation en question -- Nouvelles pratiques du concert -- L'interprète et l'électronique -- L'interprète acteur de la création -- Transmission et diffusion du répertoire -- L'interprète investi dans la création -- Questions d'interprétation -- L'interprète analyste -- Analyser l'interprétation -- L'analyse de l'interprétation : un changement de paradigme -- Les performances studies -- L'énoncé musical -- L'acte d'énonciation musicale -- L'enregistrement comme source primaire -- La littérature d'analyses d'interprétations enregistrées -- Les outils informatiques pour l'analyse de l'interprétation -- Les premières utilisations de l'ordinateur pour l'analyse -- Les représentations en informatique musicale -- Les descripteurs audio : nouvelles représentations pour l'analyse -- Méthodologies d'analyse de l'interprétation -- Analyse de l'interprétation des dix pièces pour quintette à vent de gyôrgy ligeti -- Les dix pièces pour quintette à vent de gyôrgy ligeti -- Aspects contextuels et esthétiques -- Éléments d'analyse des Dix pièces -- Analyse de dix interprétations enregistrées des dix pièces -- Le corpus d'enregistrements -- Caractéristiques globales des interprétations -- Analyse de l'interprétation pièce par pièce -- Synthèse de l'analyse.
"La musique savante du XXe siècle a réinventé ses matériaux, ses catégories, ses langages, sa notation, ses techniques, ses formes et ses pratiques du concert. Qu'il soit soliste ou membre d'un ensemble, l'interprète est en prise directe avec la création. La projection du musicien dans une oeuvre contemporaine est donc d'une toute autre nature que celle de l'interprète du "grand répertoire". L'objectif de cet ouvrage est de s'interroger sur les conséquences de ces bouleversements pour l'interprète et sur la façon dont la musicologie peut rendre compte de l'interprétation de ce répertoire. Il s'inscrit dans le champ des Performance Studies qui, depuis les années 1990, a initié un changement de paradigme en musicologie qui invite à une nouvelle réflexion sur l'art musical, interroge à nouveaux frais le concept d'oeuvre et redonne à l'interprète sa place dans la création. Ce livre s'est donné pour ambition d'examiner les théories et les méthodes de l'étude de la performance tout en proposant des modalités d'utilisation d'outils informatiques de visualisation et d'extraction de descripteurs pour analyser l'interprétation. La dernière partie est consacrée à une analyse comparative assistée par ordinateur d'interprétations enregistrées des Dix pièces pour quintette à vent de Gybrgy Ligeti. Les résultats obtenus ont démontré que la créativité des interprètes s'exerce pleinement avec une partition précisément notée et particulièrement virtuose. Ils ont permis de dégager les variables d'interprétation spécifiques à cette oeuvre et de faire émerger à la fois des singularités et des convergences parmi les interprètes quant à la conduite du temps musical et à l'expressivité."--P. [4] of cover.

The study of music in commercials is well-suited for exploring the persuasive impact that music has beyond the ability to entertain, edify, and purify its audience. This book focuses on music in commercials from an interpretive text analytical perspective, answering hitherto neglected questions: What characterizes music in commercials compared to other commercial music and other music on TV? How does music in commercials relate to music 'outside' the universe of commercials? How and what can music in commercials signify? Author Nicolai Graakjaer sets a new benchmark for the international scholarly study of music on television and its pervading influence on consumer choice.

While unappreciated and controversial during most of his life, Anton Bruckner is today regarded as the greatest symphonist between Beethoven and Gustav Mahler - in terms of originality, boldness and monumentality of his music. The image of Bruckner the man, however, is still extreme instance of the tenacious power of prejudice. No less a figure than Gustav Mahler coined the apercu about Bruckner being a simpleton - half genius, half imbecile. The author is out to correct that misperception. His thesis in this study is that contrary to what has hitherto been asserted, there is an intimate relation between Bruckner's sacred music and his symphonies from multiple perspectives: biographical data, sources and influences, the psychology of creation, musical structure, contemporary testimony and reception history. Additional chapters assess important Bruckner recordings and interpreters and the progressiveness of his music.

Unite the science of sound and the principles of design to enhance any space Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over 350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the best design practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings by using the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includes a summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakes and oversights, and the Instructor's website offers video animations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "first look" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains the principles of architectural acoustics and their practical applications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing with acoustics in mind. Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls it may determine building placement, division of interior space, exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in the design process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted sound and promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems with the space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-construction remediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helps designers solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enabling readers to: * Understand the physical science underlying the behavior of sound * Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initial design approach * Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC and plumbing with early design planning * Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics best practices into every plan The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complex concepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept's real-world application ties the science directly into the design process. All design professionals need to have a fundamental understanding of acoustics, and Architectural Acoustics Illustrated is a comprehensive, practical guide in an easy-to-read format.

Unite the science of sound and the principles of design to enhance any space Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over 350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the best design practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings by using the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includes a summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakes and oversights, and the Instructor's website offers video animations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "first look" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains the principles of architectural acoustics and their practical applications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing with acoustics in mind. Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls it may determine building placement, division of interior space, exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in the design process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted sound and promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems with the space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-construction remediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helps designers solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enabling readers to: * Understand the physical science underlying the behavior of sound * Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initial design approach * Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC and plumbing with early design planning * Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics best practices into every plan The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complex concepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept's real-world application ties the science directly into the design process. All design professionals need to have a fundamental understanding of acoustics, and Architectural Acoustics Illustrated is a comprehensive, practical guide in an easy-to-read format.

Audio Effects: Theory, Implementation and Application explores digital audio effects relevant to audio signal processing and music informatics. It supplies fundamental background information on digital signal processing, focusing on audio-specific aspects that constitute the building block on which audio effects are developed. The text integrates theory and practice, relating technical implementation to musical implications. It can be used to gain an understanding of the operation of existing audio effects or to create new ones. In addition to delivering detailed coverage of common (and unusual) audio effects, the book discusses current digital audio standards, most notably VST and AudioUnit. Source code is provided in C/C++ and implemented as audio effect plug-ins with accompanying sound samples. Each section of the book includes study questions, anecdotes from the history of music technology, and examples that offer valuable real-world insight, making this an ideal resource for researchers and for students moving directly into industry.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Listening according to mood is likely to be what most people do when they listen to music. We want to take part in, or even be part of, the emerging world of the musical work. Using the sources of musical history and philosophy, Erik Wallrup explores this extremely vague and elusive phenomenon, which is held to be fundamental to musical hearing. Wallrup unfolds the untold musical history of the German word for a "mooda (TM), Stimmung, which in the 19th century was abundant in the musical aesthetics of the German-Austrian sphere. Martin Heideggera (TM)s much-discussed philosophy of Stimmung is introduced into the field of music, allowing Wallrup to realise fully the potential of the concept. Mood in music, or, to be more precise, musical attunement, should not be seen as a peculiar kind of emotionality, but that which constitutes fundamentally the relationship between listener and music. Exploring mood, or attunement, is indispensable for a thorough understanding of the act of listening to music.
