πŸ“™ The Dawn of Music Semiology: Essays in Honor of Jean-Jacques Nattiez by Jonathan Dunsby, Jonathan Goldman (eds.) β€” pdf free


The Dawn of Music Semiology showcases the work of ten leading musicologists, inspired by the work of Jean-Jacques Nattiez, the founding father of music semiology. Now entering its fifth decade as Nattiez enters his eighth, music semiology, or music semiotics, is still a young, vibrant field, and this book reflects its energy and diversity. It appeals to readers wanting to explore the meaning of music in our lives and to understand the ways of appreciating the complexities that lie behind its simple beauty and direct impact on us. Following a preface by Pierre Boulez and an introduction by the editors, nine chapters discuss the latest thinking about general considerations such as music and gesture, the psychology of music, and the role of ethnotheory. The volume offers new research on topics as diverse as modeling folk polyphony, spatialization in the Darmstadt repertoire, Schenker's theory of musical content, compositional modernism from Wagner to Boulez, current music theory terminology, and Maderna's use of folk music in serial composition.
CONTRIBUTORS: Kofi Agawu, Simha Arom, Rossana Dalmonte, Irene Deliege, Jonathan Dunsby, Jonathan Goldman, Nicolas Meeus, Jean Molino, Arnold Whittall
