Towards a Theory of Musical Reproduction - Note...

At the beginning of his career in the 1920s, Adorno sketched a plan to write a major work on the theory of musical reproduction, a task he returned to time and again throughout his career but never completed. The choice of the word reproduction as opposed to interpretation indicates a primary supposition: that there is a clearly defined musical text whose precision exceeds what is visible on the page, and that the performer has the responsibility to reproduce it as accurately as possible, beyond simply playing what is written. This task, according to Adorno, requires a detailed understanding of all musical parameters in their historical context, and his reflections upon this task lead to a fundamental study of the nature of notation and musical sense. In the various notes and texts brought together in Towards a Theory of Musical Reproduction, one finds Adorno constantly circling around an irresolvable paradox: interpretation can only fail the work, yet only through it can musics true essence be captured. While he at times seems more definite in his pronouncement of a musical scores absolute value just as a book is read silently, not aloud his discourse repeatedly displays his inability to cling to that belief. It is this quality of uncertainty in his reflections that truly indicates the scope of the discourse and its continuing relevance to musical thought and practice today.

What is a musical instrument? What are the musical instruments of the future? This anthology presents thirty papers selected from the fifteen year long history of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME). NIME is a leading music technology conference, and an important venue for researchers and artists to present and discuss their explorations of musical instruments and technologies. Each of the papers is followed by commentaries written by the original authors and by leading experts. The volume covers important developments in the field, including the earliest reports of instruments like the reacTable, Overtone Violin, Pebblebox, and Plank. There are also numerous papers presenting new development platforms and technologies, as well as critical reflections, theoretical analyses and artistic experiences. The anthology is intended for newcomers who want to get an overview of recent advances in music technology. The historical traces, meta-discussions and reflections will also be of interest for longtime NIME participants. The book thus serves both as a survey of influential past work and as a starting point for new and exciting future developments.

29,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In dieser Untersuchung wird der Umbau des Musical Dome Köln zur Oper am Dom als Beispiel für die Vorgehensweise einer raumakustischen Optimierung eines Musicaltheaters für eine Opernproduktion beschrieben und dokumentiert. Es werden die Grundlagen der Akustik dargestellt, die unterschiedlichen raumakustischen Anforderungen der Genres Oper und Musical kontrastiv gegenüber gestellt, die Idealwerte für ein Opernhaus aus der Literatur aufgelistet sowie der Musical Dome Köln und sein baugeschichtlicher Hintergrund vorgestellt. Messungen des Ist-Zustandes zeigen mögliche Defizite für eine Nutzung des Musicaltheaters als Opernhaus auf. Infolgedessen werden Empfehlungen für eine Optimierung der Raumakustik gegeben. Weitere Messungen überprüfen die Effektivität dieser Optimierung und beschreiben die Akustik der neuen Oper am Dom. Diese werden anschließend noch durch den Vergleich mit den Idealwerten bewertet. Philipp Polzin ist gebürtiger Kölner und studierte an der Robert-Schumann-Hochschule in Düsseldorf Ton- und Bildtechnik mit dem musikalischen Hauptfach Klavier. Sein Interessensschwerpunkt liegt auf dem Musiktheater, wo er heute sowohl als Toningenieur als auch als Musiker tätig ist. So arbeitete er u.a. als Korrepetitor bei den Bad Hersfelder Festspielen, am Schauspiel Essen und als musikalischer Leiter für AIDA Cruises und produzierte außerdem CDs mit dem Musicalstar Chris Murray für das Schauspiel Essen und den Felix Bloch Erben Verlag. In der Studie Raumakustik in der Oper und im Musical kombinierte er seine technischen und musikalischen Interessen.

New York City and the Hollywood Musical - Danci...
103,52 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In examining the relationship between the spectacular, iconic and vibrant New York of the musical and the off-screen history and geography of the real city-this book explores how the city shaped the genre and equally how the genre shaped representations of the city. Shearer argues that while the musical was for many years a prime vehicle for the idealization of urban density, the transformation New York underwent after World War II constituted a major challenge to its representation. Including analysis of 42nd Street , Swing Time , Cover Girl , On the Town , The Band Wagon , Guys and Dolls , West Side Story and many other classic and little-known musicals-this book is an innovative study of the relationship between cinema and urban space. Martha Shearer teaches in the Department of Film Studies at Kings College London, UK. She has published articles in Screen and The Soundtrack and her research focuses on the city in American cinema and media, particularly in relation to genre, gender and the history of the Hollywood film industry.

Musical Modernism and German Cinema from 1913 t...

This book investigates the relationship between musical Modernism and German cinema. It paves the way for anunorthodox path of research, one which has been little explored up until now. The main figures of musical Modernism, from Alban Berg to Paul Hindemith, and from Richard Strauss to Kurt Weill, actually had a significant relationship with cinema. True, it was a complex and contradictory relationship in which cinema often emerged more as an aesthetic point of reference than an objective reality; nonetheless, the reception of the language and aesthetic of cinema had significant influence on the domain of music. Between 1913 and 1933, Modernist composers exploration of cinema reached such a degree of pervasiveness and consistency as to become a true aesthetic paradigm, a paradigm that sat at the very heart of the Modernist project. In this insightful volume, Finocchiaro shows that the creative confrontation with the avant-garde medium par excellence can be regarded as a vector of musical Modernism: a new aesthetic paradigm for the very process - of deliberate misinterpretation, creative revisionism, and sometimes even intentional subversion of the Classic-Romantic tradition - which realized the dream of Otherness of the Modernist generation. Francesco Finocchiaro is Senior Research Scientist at the Department of Musicology of the University of Vienna, Austria. His research interests focus on the points of connection between composition, theory and aesthetics in Twentieth-century music. He edited Arnold Schönbergs Il pensiero musicale (2011) and has also published extensively on film music, with special regard to the relationship between cinema and musical avant-gardes. He has taught in Italy at the Universities of Bologna, Milan, Florence, as well as at Ferrara Conservatory, and in Austria at the University of Vienna.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Technische Universität Dortmund (Institut für Musik und Musikwissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Den Begriff Musical verbinden die meisten Menschen in erster Linie mit den USA. Die Ursprünge dieses inzwischen eigenständigen Genres liegen aber woanders: es ist entstanden aus dem englischen Vaudeville und wurde in Amerika radikal weiterentwickelt. Eines der ersten deutschen Erfolgsmusicals lässt sich bereits in den 20er Jahren ausfindig machen; die Dreigroschenoper von Bertold Brecht mit der Musik von Kurt Weill . Auch bereits in der Weimarer Republik finden sich Werke des amerikanischen Musiktheaters. Die eigentliche Erfolgsgeschichte des Musicals im deutschsprachigen Raum beginnt aber nach 1945 mit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges.
