Von der Frage geleitet, wie die Gegenwartskulturforschung aus der Berücksichtigung klanglicher Phänomene Erkenntnisgewinne ziehen kann, verknüpft die Studie Überlegungen aus Popkultur- und Soundscape-Forschung, Empirischer Kulturwissenschaft, Musikethnologie, Kulturtheorie und Medienwissenschaft zu einem kulturanthropologischen Forschungsansatz. Sie nähert sich ihren Phänomenen interpretativ und erprobt ein begriffliches Instrumentarium, das die subjektivierenden Effekte klanglicher Medialität benennbar macht. Auf diese Weise entwirft die Studie eine Vorstellung vom Forschungsstand kulturwissenschaftlich orientierter Sound Studies und ihren Möglichkeiten.

"Kaluli Soundscape"?

Das klangökologische Konzept nach Murray Schafer und Steven Felds ethnographische Studien in Neuguinea

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Universität zu Köln (Musikwissenschaftliches Institut), Veranstaltung: Musikwissenschaften; Musikethnologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Während seiner Feldforschungen untersuchte Feld klangliche Phänomene der Kaluli in Neuguinea. Auch Schafer erforschte mit dem World Soundscape Project den Zusammenhang zwischen dem Menschen und der hörbaren Umwelt. Die vorliegende Arbeit verdeutlicht, dass zwischen der Ethnographie Felds und der Konzeption Schafers begriffliche Gemeinsamkeiten bestehen. Beide Gedankenmodelle entstanden im selben Zeitraum und weisen erhebliche Parallelen auf. Im zweiten Kapitel wird Murray Schafers Soundscape-Konzept erklärt und die in dieser Tradition stehenden Positionen der soundökologischen Klangkomponisten vorgestellt. Das dritte Kapitel analysiert ausgewählte Textstellen aus Sound and Sentiment. Hierbei wird herausgestellt, inwiefern Feld im Sinne eines Soundscape-Konzepts interpretierend in den Schreibprozess eingreift. In den vergleichenden Beweisführungen kommen in diesem Kapitel auch Stimmen der elektroakustischen Klangkomponisten zu Wort. Im vierten Kapitel werden die Beziehungen zwischen Schafers Konzept und Steven Felds interpretierten Beobachtungen anhand ausgewählter Textauszüge, die zeitlich nach Sound and Sentiment erschienen, belegt. Die Ergebnisse führen im fünften Kapitel zu einer abschließenden Auswertung, welche die Frage nach Felds Objektivitätsanspruch klärt. Hierfür wird sich zum einen eine Kritik an Murray Schafers Soundscape-Konzeption als notwendig erweisen. Außerdem beabsichtigt die vorliegende Arbeit in Anlehnung an die Positionen von „Writing Culture“ eine Kritik ethnozentristischer Positionen. Da Steven Feld und Murray Schafer sich in ihren Hauptwerken auf verschiedene Einzelwissenschaften beziehen, stammen die herangezogenen Quellen dementsprechend aus verschiedenen Disziplinen. Email-Korrespondenz mit den Komponisten Hildegard Westerkamp, Manuel Iturbide Rocha und Michael Rüsenberg, die außerdem hilfreiche Quellen im Internet veröffentlicht haben, verdichteten mein Verständnis über das soundökologische Konzept. So gehen Antworten aus Emails an Westerkamp sowie Steven Feld als direkte Zitate in den Text mit ein. Die Arbeit befasst sich auch mit klangökologischen Soundscape-Kompositionen. So werden Westerkamps Stück „A Walk Trough The City“ sowie Steven Felds „From Morning Night To Real Morning“ in der Textanalyse besprochen.

Sound Tracks

Popular Music Identity and Place

Author: John Connell,Chris Gibson

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134699123

Category: Science

Page: 336

Sound Tracks is the first comprehensive book on the new geography of popular music, examining the complex links between places, music and cultural identities. It provides an interdisciplinary perspective on local, national and global scenes, from the 'Mersey' and 'Icelandic' sounds to 'world music', and explores the diverse meanings of music in a range of regional contexts. In a world of intensified globalisation, links between space, music and identity are increasingly tenuous, yet places give credibility to music, not least in the 'country', and music is commonly linked to place, as a stake to originality, a claim to tradition and as a marketing device. This book develops new perspectives on these relationships and how they are situated within cultural and geographical thought.

Unter dieses Thema ein internationales Symposion in Berlin zu stellen, das zum Gedenken an Hans Heinrich Eggebrecht (1919-1999) veranstaltet wurde, erschien umso naheliegender, zumal Eggebrecht die Frage �Was ist Musik?� existenziell beruehrte, sie grundierte und sein Forscherleben als Musikwissenschaftler von den fruehen Ver�ffentlichungen nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg bis zu den letzten Arbeiten durchzog.

Sound Sentiment

An Essay on the Musical Emotions, Including the Complete Text of The Corded Shell

Author: Peter Kivy

Publisher: Temple University Press

ISBN: 9780877226772

Category: Music

Page: 286

View: 4082

The Corded Shell: Reflections on Musical Expression, published in 1980 and now out of print, was concerned with the question of how music comes to have the emotional properties that have been perceived in it and ascribed to it since antiquity. In that book, Peter Kivy argued that music possesses expressive properties, not as powers to arouse emotions in us but, rather, as perceived qualities of the music itself. In Sound Sentiment, he augments his previous work with four entirely new chapters. Incorporating the complete, corrected text of The Corded Shell, Kivy brings his earlier arguments up to date in light of recent work in the field, and discusses and answers various criticisms. Author note: Peter Kivy is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University and Associate Editor of the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. He received the Deems Taylor Award of ASCAP for The Corded Shell.

Dub

Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae

Publisher: Wesleyan University Press

ISBN: 0819574422

Category: Music

Page: 352

View: 5846

Winner of the ARSC’s Award for Best Research (History) in Folk, Ethnic, or World Music (2008) When Jamaican recording engineers Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock, Errol Thompson, and Lee “Scratch” Perry began crafting “dub” music in the early 1970s, they were initiating a musical revolution that continues to have worldwide influence. Dub is a sub-genre of Jamaican reggae that flourished during reggae’s “golden age” of the late 1960s through the early 1980s. Dub involves remixing existing recordings—electronically improvising sound effects and altering vocal tracks—to create its unique sound. Just as hip-hop turned phonograph turntables into musical instruments, dub turned the mixing and sound processing technologies of the recording studio into instruments of composition and real-time improvisation. In addition to chronicling dub’s development and offering the first thorough analysis of the music itself, author Michael Veal examines dub’s social significance in Jamaican culture. He further explores the “dub revolution” that has crossed musical and cultural boundaries for over thirty years, influencing a wide variety of musical genres around the globe.

How Race Is Made

Slavery, Segregation, and the Senses

Author: Mark M. Smith

Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press

ISBN: 9780807877272

Category: Social Science

Page: 208

View: 783

For at least two centuries, argues Mark Smith, white southerners used all of their senses--not just their eyes--to construct racial difference and define race. His provocative analysis, extending from the colonial period to the mid-twentieth century, shows how whites of all classes used the artificial binary of "black" and "white" to justify slavery and erect the political, legal, and social structure of segregation. Based on painstaking research, How Race Is Made is a highly original, always frank, and often disturbing book. After enslaved Africans were initially brought to America, the offspring of black and white sexual relationships (consensual and forced) complicated the purely visual sense of racial typing. As mixed-race people became more and more common and as antebellum race-based slavery and then postbellum racial segregation became central to southern society, white southerners asserted that they could rely on their other senses--touch, smell, sound, and taste--to identify who was "white" and who was not. Sensory racial stereotypes were invented and irrational, but at every turn, Smith shows, these constructions of race, immune to logic, signified difference and perpetuated inequality. Smith argues that the history of southern race relations and the construction of racial difference on which that history is built cannot be understood fully on the basis of sight alone. In order to come to terms with the South's past and present, Smith says, we must explore the sensory dynamics underpinning the deeply emotional construction of race. How Race Is Made takes a bold step toward that understanding.

Hearts of Pine

Songs in the Lives of Three Korean Survivors of the Japanese "Comfort Women"

In the wake of the Asia-Pacific War, Korean survivors of the "comfort women" system-those bound into sexual slavery for the Japanese military during the war-lived under great pressure not to speak about what had happened to them. Hearts of Pine brings us into the lives of three such survivors: Pak Duri, Mun Pilgi, and Bae Chunhui. Over the course of eight years, author Joshua Pilzer worked with these now-elderly women, smoking with them, eating with them, singing and playing with them, trying to understand and document their worlds of song. During four decades of secrecy and the subsequent decades of the "comfort women" protest movement, singing served these women as a means of coping with and expressing their experiences, forging and sustaining identities and social relationships, and recording and conveying their struggles and philosophies of life. Through these intimate portraits, Hearts of Pine illustrates the personal and social power of music vis-?-vis other expressive media, models a humanistic history of modern Korean music, and presents heretofore unrecorded histories of the "comfort women" system and postwar South Korean public culture written in women's song.

Damit wird eine «Kartierung» der neueren Kulturwissenschaften geleistet und zugleich ein umfassender Überblick über ihre Entwicklungen und Ausrichtungen geboten – mit einer Fülle verarbeiteter internationaler Forschungsliteratur.

Spirits Rejoice!

Jazz and American Religion

Author: Jason C. Bivins

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0190230932

Category: Music

Page: 384

View: 2187

In Spirits Rejoice! Jason Bivins explores the relationship between American religion and American music, and the places where religion and jazz have overlapped. Much writing about jazz tends toward glorified discographies or impressionistic descriptions of the actual sounds. Rather than providing a history, or series of biographical entries, Spirits Rejoice! takes to heart a central characteristic of jazz itself and improvises, generating a collection of themes, pursuits, reoccurring foci, and interpretations. Bivins riffs on interviews, liner notes, journals, audience reception, and critical commentary, producing a work that argues for the centrality of religious experiences to any legitimate understanding of jazz, while also suggesting that jazz opens up new interpretations of American religious history. Bivins examines themes such as musical creativity as related to specific religious traditions, jazz as a form of ritual and healing, and jazz cosmologies and metaphysics. Spirits Rejoice! connects Religious Studies to Jazz Studies through thematic portraits, and a vast number of interviews to propose a new, improvisationally fluid archive for thinking about religion, race, and sound in the United States. Bivins's conclusions explore how the sound of spirits rejoicing challenges not only prevailing understandings of race and music, but also the way we think about religion. Spirits Rejoice! is an essential volume for any student of jazz, American religion, or American culture.

Too Much to Dream

A Psychedelic American Boyhood

Page: 224

Growing up in the suburbs of Boston and raised on secular Judaism, Cocoa Puffs, and Gilligan’s Island, Peter Bebergal was barely in his teens when the ancient desire to finding higher spiritual meaning in the universe struck. Already schooled in mysticism by way of comic books, Dungeons & Dragons, and Carlos Castaneda, he turned to hallucinogens, convinced they would provide a path to illumination. Was this profound desire for God—a god he believed that could only be apprehended by an extreme state of altered consciousness—simply a side effect of the drugs? Or was it a deeper human longing that was manifesting itself, even on a country club golf course at the edge of a strip mall? Too Much to Dream places Bebergal’s story within the cultural history of hallucinogens, American fascination with mysticism, and the complex relationship between drug addiction, popular culture, rock ‘n’ roll, occultism, and psychology. With a captivating foreword by Peter Coyote, and interviews with writers, artists, and psychologists such as Dennis McKenna, James Fadima, Arik Roper, Jim Woodring, and Mark Tulin, Bebergal offers a groundbreaking exploration of drugs, religion, and the craving for spirituality entrenched in America’s youth.
