Moving Away from Silence

Music of the Peruvian Altiplano and the Experience of Urban Migration

Author: Thomas Turino

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 9780226816951

Category: Music

Page: 331

Increasingly popular in the United States and Europe, Andean panpipe and flute music draws its vitality from the traditions of rural highland villages and of rural migrants who have settled in Andean cities. In Moving Away from Silence, Thomas Turino describes panpipe and flute traditions in the context of this rural-urban migration and the turbulent politics that have influenced Peruvian society and local identities throughout this century. Turino's ethnography is the first large-scale study to concentrate on the pervasive effects of migration on Andean people and their music. Turino uses the musical traditions of Conima, Peru as a unifying thread, tracing them through the varying lives of Conimeos in different locales. He reveals how music both sustains and creates meaning for a people struggling amid the dramatic social upheavals of contemporary Peru. Moving Away from Silence contains detailed interpretations based on comparative field research of Conimeo musical performance, rehearsals, composition, and festivals in the highlands and Lima. The volume will be of great importance to students of Latin American music and culture as well as ethnomusicological and ethnographic theory and method.

Music and Empathy

ISBN: 1317092597

Page: 290

In recent years, empathy has received considerable research attention as a means of understanding a range of psychological phenomena, and it is fast drawing attention within the fields of music psychology and music education. This volume seeks to promote and stimulate further research in music and empathy, with contributions from many of the leading scholars in the fields of music psychology, neuroscience, music philosophy and education. It exposes current developmental, cognitive, social and philosophical perspectives on research in music and empathy, and considers the notion in relation to our engagement with different types of music and media. Following a Prologue, the volume presents twelve chapters organised into two main areas of enquiry. The first section, entitled 'Empathy and Musical Engagement', explores empathy in music education and therapy settings, and provides social, cognitive and philosophical perspectives about empathy in relation to our interaction with music. The second section, entitled 'Empathy in Performing Together', provides insights into the role of empathy across non-Western, classical, jazz and popular performance domains. This book will be of interest to music educators, musicologists, performers and practitioners, as well as scholars from other disciplines with an interest in empathy research.

an der Universität Göttingen gehaltenen Vcwlesung über Hauptstücke aus der Phänomenologie und Theorie der Erkenntnis,l ist annähernd voll ständig erhalten; die Blätter des V cwlesungsmanuskripts zur Phänomenologie des inneren Zeitbewußtseins liegen verstreut in den Konvoluten F I 6 und 2 F I 8 des Husserl-Archivs zu Löwen. Allerdings fußt der Erste Teil des Erstdrucks, dessen Bezeichnung als Die Vorlesungen über das innere Zeit bewußtsein aus dem Jahre 1905 gleichwohl auch in vcwliegender Neuausgabe beibehalten wurde, nur zum Teil noch, und auch in diesem Teil mit be trächtlichen Abweichungen, auf dem Text des ursprünglichen Vcwlesungs manuskripts des Jahres I905; und umgekehrt hat nur ein Teil des Textes des ursprünglichen Vcwlesungs-Manuskripts - mit den erwähnten Abwand lungen - Eingang in den Ersten Teil des Erstdrucks gefunden. Wo der Text dieses Ersten Teils des Erstdrucks dem des ursprünglichen Vcwlesungs manuskripts entspricht, wurde er er mit diesem verglichen, und ollensicht liche Irrtümer im Erstdruck wurden berichtigt; in den Textkritischen Anmer kungen ist dann mit dem Vermerk nach dem Ms. verbessert die Text fassung des Erstdrucks wiedergegeben. Ferner wurde in den Textkritischen Anmerkungen vcwliegender Neuausgabe überall der ursprüngliche und voll ständige· Text des Vorlesungsmanuskripts von I905 wiedergegeben, auf dessen Zusammenhang die entsprechenden Teile des Erstdrucks zurückgehen, wo dieser von ienem abweicht.

Saying Something

Jazz Improvisation and Interaction

Author: Ingrid Monson

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 9780226534794

Category: Music

Page: 261

View: 2238

This fresh look at the neglected rhythm section in jazz ensembles shows that the improvisational interplay among drums, bass, and piano is just as innovative, complex, and spontaneous as the solo. Ingrid Monson juxtaposes musicians' talk and musical examples to ask how musicians go about "saying something" through music in a way that articulates identity, politics, and race. Through interviews with Jaki Byard, Richard Davis, Sir Roland Hanna, Billy Higgins, Cecil McBee, and others, she develops a perspective on jazz improvisation that has "interactiveness" at its core, in the creation of music through improvisational interaction, in the shaping of social communities and networks through music, and in the development of cultural meanings and ideologies that inform the interpretation of jazz in twentieth-century American cultural life. Replete with original musical transcriptions, this broad view of jazz improvisation and its emotional and cultural power will have a wide audience among jazz fans, ethnomusicologists, and anthropologists.

Die neue Wissenschaft über die gemeinschaftliche Natur der Völker

Nach der Ausgabe von 1744

Author: Giambattista Vico

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3110827239

Category: Philosophy

Page: 477

View: 574

Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic philosophers before Kant and Hegel. Although Giorgio Vasari had already diagnosed a cycle of rise, blossoming and decline in the history of art, Vico was the first to base this on a philosophical system. Isolated in Naples from direct contact with the philosophical life of his times, he worked at his grand design of the cycles of rise, blossoming, decline and eternal return which he saw in all areas of culture. His points of reference were ancient mythology and Greek and Roman history. To that extent, he is regarded today as the founder of the philosophy of history and the precursor of a tradition which extends to Hegel and Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West".

Wichtigstes Ziel der Publikation ist die Präsentation empirischer Ergebnisse bezüglich der politischen Orientierungen sowie der Entwicklung dieser Orientierungen in der ersten Klasse der Grundschule. Dabei wird zunächst nachgewiesen, wie Kinder Politik verstehen und auf welche Weise dieses Verständnis für die empirische Politikforschung zugänglich gemacht werden kann. Hauptthema des Bandes liegt auf der Beschreibung politischer Orientierungen junger Kinder auf der Basis der beiden Wellen der Kinderbefragung des Forschungsprojekts 'Demokratie Leben Lernen' (etwa 800 Kinder). Die Analysen sind auf drei Hauptbereiche (Themen, Wissen, Werte) fokussiert. Die hierbei aufgedeckten Unterschiede in Niveau und Persistenz der politischen Orientierungen werden auch auf ihren Zusammenhang mit einigen wichtigen Einflussfaktoren wie Geschlecht, Alter, Nationalität usw. untersucht.

Der einarmige Pianist

über Musik und das Gehirn

Author: Oliver W. Sacks

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783499624254

Category: Hirnverletzung - Musikalität

Page: 444

View: 8971

Oliver Sacks ist berühmt für seine brillanten Geschichten, die uns tief in die Welt des menschlichen Geistes und Gehirns führen und unser Verständnis des menschlichen Wesens erweitert haben und dies mit seiner einzigartigen Mischung aus empathischer Erzählkunst, wissenschaftlicher Gelehrsamkeit und dem Blick für das Kuriose. In seinem neuesten Buch erzählt Sacks von Menschen, die nach einer Hirnverletzung ihre Musikalität verlieren, und von anderen, die durch eine solche Verletzung erst Musikalität entwickeln, ja von Musik geradezu besessen sind. Sacks erweist sich wieder als Meister der Menschenbeschreibung und entdeckt an scheinbaren Defekten die besonderen Qualitäten der Menschen wie beim einarmigen Pianisten Paul Wittgenstein, für den die großen Komponisten Benjamin Britten, Paul Hindemith, Richard Strauss und Maurice Ravel eigens Stücke für die linke Hand schrieben. Musik, so zeigt Sacks, hat die einzigartige Kraft, das Gehirn in ganz bemerkenswerter und komplexer Weise zu verändern, und wir Menschen sind eine musikalische Spezies nicht nur eine sprachliche. Musik zieht uns unwiderstehlich in ihren Bann.
