Composition and Cognition - Reflections on Contemporary Music and the Musical Mind (Paperback): Fred Lerdahl Composition and Cognition - Reflections on Contemporary Music and the Musical Mind (Paperback)
Fred Lerdahl
R565 Discovery Miles 5 650 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In Composition and Cognition, renowned composer and theorist Fred Lerdahl builds on his careerlong work of developing a comprehensive model of music cognition. Bringing together his dual expertise in composition and music theory, he reveals the way in which his research has served as a foundation for his compositional style and how his intuitions as a composer have guided his cognitively oriented theories. At times personal and reflective, this book offers an overall picture of the musical mind that has implications for central issues in contemporary composition, including the recurrent gap between method and result, and the tension between cognitive constraints and utopian aesthetic views of musical progress. Lerdahl's succinct volume provides invaluable insights for students and instructors, composers and music scholars, and anyone engaged with contemporary music.

Collected Essays on Modern and Classical Music (Paperback): George Edwards Collected Essays on Modern and Classical Music (Paperback)
George Edwards; Foreword by Fred Lerdahl
R1,233 Discovery Miles 12 330 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This collection of published and unpublished essays from the 1990s ranges from analyses of classical music to witty arguments about the merits and demerits of modernism and postmodernism to philosophical considerations of time, tempo, and performance. Rather than taking a technical approach accessible only to composers and musicologists, George Edwards addresses a wide audience of musically cultivated readers. His essays include philosophical and critical thoughts on music, as well as broader discussions of Marxism, psychoanalytic theory, and semiotics. Some of the essays were first published in literary journals, and all of them approach their subjects through an array of cultural references buttressed with precise musical insights. Collected Essays on Modern and Classical Music comprises three sections: essays on modern music, essays on postmodern musicology and literary theory, and analytical studies of Haydn and Schubert. Whether dissecting critical assumptions, discussing performance practices, or explicating the process of musical composition, Edwards's lively writing is never less than bracing.

A search for a grammar of music with the aid of generative linguistics. This work, which has become a classic in music theory since its original publication in 1983, models music understanding from the perspective of cognitive science.The point of departure is a search for the grammar of music with the aid of generative linguistics.The theory, which is illustrated with numerous examples from Western classical music, relates the aural surface of a piece to the musical structure unconsciously inferred by the experienced listener. From the viewpoint of traditional music theory, it offers many innovations in notation as well as in the substance of rhythmic and reductional theory.

R850 Discovery Miles 8 500 Out of stock

Building on the foundation of Lerdahl and Jackendoff's influential A Generative Theory of Tonal Music, this volume presents a multidimensional model of diatonic and chromatic spaces that quantifies listeners' intuitions of the relative distances of pitches, chords, and keys from a given tonic. The model is employed to assign prolongational structure, represent paths through the space, and compute patterns of tension and attraction as musical events unfold, thereby providing a partial basis for understanding musical narration, expectation, and expression. Conceived as both a music-theoretic treatise and a contribution to the cognitive science of music, this book will be of interest to music theorists, musicologists, composers, computer musicians, and cognitive psychologists.
