The dawn of music semiology : essays in honor of Jean-Jacques Nattiez
edited by Jonathan Dunsby and Jonathan Goldman
Rochester, NY : University of Rochester Press, 2017
Music and gesture / Jean Molino -- Music semiology in the mind of the musician / Jonathan Dunsby -- Against ethnotheory / Kofi Agawu -- From Georgian to Medieval polyphonies : analysis and modeling / Simha Arom -- Schenker's Inhalt, Schenkerian semiotics : a preliminary study / Nicolas Meeáus -- Music under the sign of modernism : from Wagner to Boulez, and Britten / Arnold Whittall -- Musical borrowings in the works of Bruno Maderna / Rossana Dalmonte -- Of doubles, groups, and rhymes : a seriation of works for spatialized orchestral groups (1958-60) / Jonathan Goldman -- The psychological organization of music listening : from spontaneous to learned perceptive processes / Iráene Deliáege.

The dawn of music semiology showcases the work of ten leading musicologists inspired by the work of Jean-Jacques Nattiez. Reflecting the energy and diversity of the young field of music semiology, chapters in this volume discuss music and gesture, the psychology of music, and the role of ethnotheory, and offer new research on topics as diverse as modeling folk polyphony, spatialization in the Darmstadt repertoire, Schenker's theory of musical content, and modernism from Wagner to Boulez.

"John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock and roll. Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, he was exposed to folk, blues, soul, and R & B. After he met and teamed up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own, but never abandoned their roots. In his memoir, John uncovers the grit and struggle it took to secure a recording contract with legendary Atlantic Records, and chronicles the artistic twists and turns that resulted in a DJ discovering an obscure album track that would become their first hit record. This is not your typical rock-and-roll story. John's journey spans many cultural eras and includes a wildly diverse collection of friendships with legends such as Hunter S. Thompson and George Harrison. Through it all, John has focused on creating great music. He achieved incredible success while battling the ever-changing pop music landscape and coming to terms with complex managerial, business, and personal challenges. Daryl Hall and John Cates have made twenty-one albums together, sold more than sixty million records, and have had twenty-nine Top 40 hits. They are the most successful pop duo in the world and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet John's story has never been told. Relying on his many handwritten journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories, ranging over his entire life, with a journalist's eye and a poet's heart. In Change of Seasons, John shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities, and music that have shaped him into who he is."--Jacket.

The Cambridge companion to film music
edited by Mervyn Cooke and Fiona Ford
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, [2016]
Part one : Making film music. Evolving practices for film music and sound, 1925-1935 / James Buhler and Hannah Lewis -- "Pictures that talk and sing" : sound history and technology / David Cooper -- The composer and the studio : Korngold and Warner Bros. / Ben Winters -- Can't buy me love? : economic imperatives and artistic achievements in the British pop-music film / Stephen Glynn -- "A film's first audience" : the composer's role in film and television / George Fenton in conversation with Mervyn Cooke.

His wide-ranging and thought-provoking collection of specially-commissioned essays provides a uniquely comprehensive overview of the many and various ways in which music functions in film soundtracks. Citing examples from a variety of historical periods, genres and film industries - including those of the USA, UK, France, Italy, India and Japan - the book's contributors are all leading scholars and practitioners in the field. They engage, sometimes provocatively, with numerous stimulating aspects of the history, theory and practice of film music in a series of lively discussions which will appeal as much to newcomers to this fascinating subject as to seasoned film music aficionados. Innovative research and fresh interpretative perspectives are offered alongside practice-based accounts of the film composer's distinctive art, with examples cited from genres as contrasting as animation, the screen musical, film noir, Hollywood melodrama, the pop music and jazz film, documentary, period drama, horror, science fiction and the Western.

Lyric cousins : poetry and musical form
Sampson, Fiona, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
About time -- Abstract form -- Drawing the line -- Chromaticism -- Density -- The meaning of 'meaning' -- Song -- And story came too : from epic to opera -- Closer still : the total artwork -- The consolations of tradition -- Radical measures -- Performance : the role of the audience.

Today, poetry and art music occupy similar cultural positions: each has a tendency to be regarded as problematic, 'difficult' and therefore 'elitist'. Despite this, the audiences and numbers of participants for each are substantial: yet they tend not to overlap. This is odd, because the forms share early history in song and saga, and have some striking similarities, often summed up in the word 'lyric'. These similarities include much that is most significant to the experience of each, and so of most interest to practitioners and audiences. They encompass, at the very least: the way each art-form is aural, and takes place in time; a shared reliance on temporal, rather than spatial, forms; an engagement with sensory experience and pleasure; availability for both shared public performance and private reading, sight-reading and hearing in memory; and scope for non-denotative meaning. In other words, looking at these elements in music is a way to look at them in poetry, and vice versa. This is a study of these two formal craft traditions that is concerned with the similarities in their roles, structures, projects and capacities.

The poetry of pop
Bradley, Adam, author
New Haven ; Yale University Press, [2017]
Introduction -- Lyric and song -- Reading -- Listening -- Rhythm -- Rhyme -- Figurative language -- Voice -- Style -- Story -- Conclusion -- Appendix.

A trailblazing exploration of the poetic power of popular songs, from Tin Pan Alley to the Beatles to Beyonce and beyond. Encompassing a century of recorded music, this pathbreaking book reveals the poetic artistry of popular songs. Pop songs are music first. They also comprise the most widely disseminated poetic expression of our time. Adam Bradley traces the song lyric across musical genres from early twentieth-century Delta blues to mid-century rock 'n' roll to today's hits. George and Ira Gershwin's "Fascinating Rhythm." The Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." Rihanna's "Diamonds." These songs are united in their exacting attention to the craft of language and sound. Bradley shows that pop music is a poetry that must be heard more than read, uncovering the rhythms, rhymes, and metaphors expressed in the singing voice. At once a work of musical interpretation, cultural analysis, literary criticism, and personal storytelling, this book illustrates how words and music come together to produce compelling poetry, often where we least expect it.

Bedřich Smetana : myth, music, and propaganda
St. Pierre, Kelly, author
Rochester, NY : University of Rochester Press, 2017
Introduction -- Smetana advocacy and Czech nation-building -- Smetana, Czechness, and the new German school -- Smetana, Czechness, and Wagner -- Smetana as a proven genius -- Writing the Smetana myth: Historiography and Czechness -- Conlcusion -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Index.

The legacy of Bedřich Smetana has become so enmeshed in state ideology under Czechoslovakia's communist regime that little has been written about the composer since the fall of that regime. This book reopens inquiry into Smetana by exploring the earliest scholarship on the composer to reveal how it generated political myths about him and his works. It also examines the ways in which these myths were adapted in twentieth-century scholarship to suit the ideologies of the communist administration. Smetana - not just a nationalist composer, but also a national symbol - remains a dynamic figure whose mythology has been rewritten time and time again to suit shifting political perspectives.
