Music Theory and Composition: A Practical Approach presents a pragmatic, accessible approach to music theory through an emphasis on melody and counterpoint. This focus explains the "why" of musical construction more clearly than the traditional approach of beginning with chords. By starting with a single melodic line and gradually adding voices in counterpoint, the book drills part-writing while simultaneously explaining functionality, first with scale degrees and then with harmony. The text has students learn musical techniques and progressively build on their functions and importance to create their own compositions. With short, digestible chapters, Music Theory and Composition clearly presents otherwise complicated ideas not as strict rules, but as artistic ideals, encouraging the interactive creation of new compositions as a tool for learning. The textbook is versatile and easily customizable, suiting -Different skill levels with species counterpoint providing a framework for the beginner while providing an interesting challenge for more experienced students -Different curricular schedules with complete exercises in two, three, and four voices, allowing for an optional skip from two voices to four -Different pedagogical approaches with species exercises encouraging students to consider harmonic choices and figured bass ensuring functional progressions Specific features of this text include: -complete curriculum for first-year theory courses -over 500 musical examples drawn from Common Practice Era compositions as well as more contemporary and popular pieces -workbook sections printed at the end of each chapter and available for download on companion website -focus on active composition throughout the text and workbook sections -conversational tone to encourage student engagement Designed for first-year college music theory courses, but accessible enough for the interested lay reader or high school student, the text offers a true balance of counterpoint and harmony.â .

"Auteur de plus d'une centaine de partitions allant du solo à la forme concertante, du quatuor à cordes au monodrame, de l'opus orchestral à la pièce pédagogique Dominique Lemaître est un compositeur à la fois prolifique et poétique. Vocale et / ou instrumentale, sa production fait actuellement l'objet de sept disques monographiques. Dans ce riche contexte des noces de l'imagination et de la perception, la rencontre révélatrice entre un compositeur français et un auditeur/lecteur avide de bien-être musical ne peut être de ce fait que stimulante et bénéfique. Jouée par les plus grands interprètes d'aujourd'hui, sa musique est reconnue internationalement. Dans ce cadre cosmopolite, préfacé par Biagio Putignano, compositeur italien et postfacé par Dan Barrett, violoncelliste américain, cet ouvrage comporte de nombreux chapitres désirant traiter, en général, de l'"éternel présent" et du statut de la "musique contemporaine" en ce début de troisième millénaire, mais il est surtout centré sur les thématiques de la généalogie constitutive de l'oeuvre lemaîtrienne et sur l'imaginaire acoustique, sur le faire et l'entendre, sur la singularité plurielle des contextes "mystérieux" de composition et des riches relations entretenues notamment avec les peintres et les poètes... Se terminant par un entretien avec l'artiste musicien, l'ensemble tente de pointer la part d'"intuition sensible" qui préside à toute recherche de "temps suspendu" maîtres-mots de Dominique Lemaître."--Page 4 of cover.

This book interrogates the meeting point between Afrofuturism and Black Sound Studies. Whereas Afrofuturism is often understood primarily in relation to science fiction and speculative fiction, it can also be examined from a sonic perspective. The sounds of Afrofuturism are deeply embedded in the speculative - demonstrated in mythmaking - in frameworks for songs and compositions, in the personas of the artists, and in how the sounds are produced. In highlighting the place of music within the lived experiences of African Americans, the author analyses how the perspectives of Black Sound Studies complement and overlap with the discussion of sonic Afrofuturism. Focusing upon blackness, technology, and sound, this unique text offers key insights in how music partakes in imagining and constructing the future. This innovative volume will appeal to students and scholars of sound studies, musicology and African American studies.

"Au XXIe siècle, les échos sonores du monde arabe résonnent bien au-delà des frontières - par ailleurs mouvantes - des pays qui le constituent. De l'Arabie heureuse de la Reine de Saba, en passant par l'âge d'or égyptien symbolisé par Oum Kalthoum, jusqu'à nos jours où les pays arabes oscillent entre bouleversements politiques et luttes pour la liberté, les sons et les voix de ce monde en ébullition s'épanouissent en formant avec les autres cultures un voisinage familier et fécond. Cet ouvrage, exploration de formes musicales traditionnelles et modernes, mystiques et profanes, populaires et savantes, est un manifeste pour la sauvegarde d'un patrimoine culturel aujourd'hui en danger, en même temps qu'un témoignage de l'exceptionnelle vitalité de la création musicale contemporaine dans le monde arabe."--Page 4 of cover.

All Gates Open presents the definitive story of arguably the most influential and revered avant-garde band of the late twentieth century: CAN. It consists of two books. In Book One, Rob Young gives us the full biography of a band that emerged at the vanguard of what would come to be called the Krautrock scene in late sixties Cologne. With Irmin Schmidt and Holger Czukay - two classically trained students of Stockhausen - at the heart of the band, CAN's studio and live performances burned an incendiary trail through the decade that followed: and left a legacy that is still reverberating today in hip hop, post rock, ambient, and countless other genres. Rob Young's account draws on unique interviews with all founding members of CAN, as well as their vocalists, friends and music industry associates. And he revisits the music, which is still deliriously innovative and unclassifiable more than four decades on. All Gates Open is a portrait of a group who worked with visionary intensity and belief, outside the system and inside their own inner space. Book Two, Can Kiosk, has been assembled by Irmin Schmidt, founding member and guiding spirit of the band, as a 'collage - a technique long associated with CAN's approach to recording. There is an oral history of the band drawing on interviews that Irmin made with musicians who see CAN as an influence - such as Bobby Gillespie, Geoff Barrow, Daniel Miller, and many others. There are also interviews with artists and filmmakers like Wim Wenders and John Malkovitch, where Schmidt reflects on more personal matters and his work with film. Extracts of Schmidt's notebook and diaries from 2013-14 are also reproduced as a reflection on the creative process, and the memories, dreams, and epiphanies it entails. Can Kiosk offers further perspectives on a band that have inspired several generations of musicians and filmmakers in the voices of the artists themselves. CAN were unique, and their legacy is articulated in two books in this volume with the depth, rigour, originality, and intensity associated with the band itself. It is illustrated throughout with previously unseen art, photographs, and ephemera from the band's archive.

This selective annotated bibliography places Alma Mahler with three other female composers of her time, covering the first generation of active female composers in the twentieth century. It uncovers the wealth of resources available on the lives and music of Mahler, Florence Price, Yuliya Lazarevna Veysberg, and Maria Teresa Prieto and supports emerging scholarship and inquiry on four women who experienced both entrenched sexual discrimination and political upheaval, which affected their lives and influenced composers of subsequent generations.

G.B. Grayson and Henry Whitter were two of the most influential artists in the early days of country music. Songs they popularized, like "Tom Dooley, " "Little Maggie, " "Handsome Molly, " and "Nine Pound Hammer, " are still staples of traditional music. Although the duo sold tens of thousands of records during the 1920s, the peak of their career, the details of their lives have been largely unknown, until now. Featuring never before published photographs and using interviews from friends and relatives, as well as contemporary scholarship, this book is the first to fully explore the lives and songs of G.B. Grayson and Henry Whitter. It also examines the Southern Appalachian world that shaped their music. What emerges is a fascinating mixture of romantic intrigues, tragic deaths, and world-class music.
