Music as biology : the tones we like and why
Purves, Dale, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2017
Sound signals and sound stimuli -- The perception of sound signals -- Human vocalization -- Music and vocal similarity -- Consonance and dissonance -- Musical scales -- Music and emotion -- Music and speech across cultures -- Implications -- Appendix: An overview of the human auditory system.

The universality of musical tones has long fascinated philosophers, scientists, musicians, and ordinary listeners. Why do human beings worldwide find some tone combinations consonant and others dissonant? Why do we make music using only a small number of scales out of the billions that are possible? Why do differently organized scales elicit different emotions? Why are there so few notes in scales? In Music as Biology, Dale Purves argues that biology offers answers to these and other questions on which conventional music theory is silent. When people and animals vocalize, they generate tonal sounds--periodic pressure changes at the ear which, when combined, can be heard as melodies and harmonies. Human beings have evolved a sense of tonality, Purves explains, because of the behavioral advantages that arise from recognizing and attending to human voices. The result is subjective responses to tone combinations that are best understood in terms of their contribution to biological success over evolutionary and individual history. Purves summarizes evidence that the intervals defining Western and other scales are those with the greatest collective similarity to the human voice; that major and minor scales are heard as happy or sad because they mimic the subdued and excited speech of these emotional states; and that the character of a culture's speech influences the tonal palette of its traditional music. Rethinking music theory in biological terms offers a new approach to centuries-long debates about the organization and impact of music.--

John Lennon
Webb, Robert, author
Stroud, Gloucestshire : The History Press, 2016
John Lennon is a giant of popular music and culture. As one-quarter of the Beatles, he was in the vanguard of music, art, fashion and popular culture during the sixties. He stands as an iconic figure even for those who grew up long after his untimely death in 1980. Above all, Lennon was one of the 20th century's greatest and most important songwriters. Songs he wrote with Paul McCartney define an era. Others he wrote alone, such as "God", "Help!" and "Revolution," betray a contradictory and troubled character. Lennon was never one to hide his love away, nor his anger, nor his convictions.

Music into fiction : composers writing, compositions imitated
Ziolkowski, Theodore, author
Rochester, New York : Camden House, 2017
Preface -- Prelude: Introduction. First movement: Composers writing. Weber and Hoffmann -- Berlioz and Schumann -- Wagner -- Transition: Nietzsche and the post-Wagnerians. Burgess -- Second movement: compositions imitated. Compositional forms -- Specific compositions -- Finale: composers setting fictional compositions. Leverkuhn's compositions -- Coda: Conclusion.

"This book deals with three aspects that have been neglected in the burgeoning field of music and literature. The "First Movement" of the book considers writers from German Romanticism to the present who, like Robert Schumann, first saw themselves as writers before they turned to composition, or, like E. T. A. Hoffmann and Anthony Burgess, sought careers in music before becoming writers. It also considers the few operatic composers, such as Richard Wagner and Arnold Schoenberg, who wrote their own libretti. The "Second Movement" turns to literary works based specifically on musical compositions. This group includes, first and more generally, prose works whose author chose a specific musical form such as sonata or fugue as an organizational model. And second, it includes novels based structurally or thematically on specific compositions, such as Bach's Goldberg Variations. The "Finale" concludes with a unique case: efforts by modern composers to render musically the compositions described in detail by Thomas Mann in his novel Doktor Faustus. This book, which addresses itself to readers interested generally in music and literature and is written in a reader-friendly style, draws attention to unexplored dimensions of the music-literature relationship and to the sometimes unrecognized talents of certain writers and composers."--

Iggy Pop life class
Deller, Jeremy, 1966- author,
Brooklyn, New York : Brooklyn Museum ; 2016
An interview with Iggy Pop / Jeremy Deller and Sharon Matt Atkins -- "And a flesh machine" : Iggy Pop, the body, and performance / Mark Beasley -- Life drawing and the male model / Frances Borzello -- How to organize an Iggy Pop life class / Sharon Matt Atkins -- Artists' biographies / compiled by Emily Annis.

"In Iggy Pop Life Class, Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller used the traditional life drawing class to stage a performative event with Iggy Pop as model and subject. The exhibition presents the resulting drawings along with works from our historical collections, chosen by Deller, that depict the male body, examining shifting representations of masculinity throughout history. The fifty-three drawings included in the exhibition were created on February 21, 2016, during a one-day life drawing class, using Pop as the unexpected model. The class was held at the New York Academy of Art and included twenty-two artists drawn from New York City's diverse communities, ranging in age from 19 to 80, with varying backgrounds and levels of education and experience. The class was led by artist and drawing professor Michael Grimaldi. The participating artists are Jeremy Day, Jeanette Farrow, Margaret Fisher, Seiji Gailey, Robert Hagan, Tobias Hall, Deirdra Hazeley, Patricia Hill, Okim Woo Kim, Maureen McAllister, Kallyiah Merilus, Guno Park, Kinley Pleteau, Angel Ramirez, Robert Reid, Mauricio Rodriguez, Danielle Rubin, Taylor Schultek, Charlotte Segall, Andrew Shears, and Levan Songulashvili. Deller's collaboration with Pop as a nude model is essential to his concept. A pioneer rock musician--as a singer, songwriter, musician, and actor--Pop began performing in the 1960s, becoming known for strenuous and unpredictable stage performances that often left his body battered and cut. For Deller, the life drawing class offered the opportunity to study his body in direct and palpable terms."--

"J.S. Bach composed some of the best-loved and most moving music in Western culture. In this book Peter Williams revisits Bach's biography through the lens of this music. Reviewing all of Bach's music, collection by collection, to reveal the development of Bach's interests and priorities. While a great deal has been written about the composer's vocal works, Williams gives the keyboard music its proper emphasis, revealing it as crucial to Bach's biography, as a young organist and a mature composer, as a performer in public and teacher in private, and as a profound thinker in the language of music."-- book jacket.

Message to our folks : the Art Ensemble of Chicago
Steinbeck, Paul, author
Chicago ; The University of Chicago Press, 2017
The South Side scene -- Two art ensembles -- The Art Ensemble of Paris -- A Jackson in your house -- On the road -- Free together -- Live at Mandel Hall -- Great black music -- Live from the Jazz Showcase.

This year marks the golden anniversary of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the flagship band of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. Formed in 1966 and flourishing until 2010, the Art Ensemble distinguished itself by its unique performance practices-- members played hundreds of instruments on stage, recited poetry, performed theatrical sketches, and wore face paint, masks, lab coats, and traditional African and Asian dress. The group, which built a global audience and toured across six continents, presented their work as experimental performance art, in opposition to the jazz industry?s traditionalist aesthetics. In Message to Our Folks, Paul Steinbeck combines musical analysis and historical inquiry to give us the definitive study of the Art Ensemble. In the book, he proposes a new theory of group improvisation that explains how the band members were able to improvise together in so many different styles while also drawing on an extensive repertoire of notated compositions. Steinbeck examines the multimedia dimensions of the Art Ensemble's performances and the ways in which their distinctive model of social relations kept the group performing together for four decades. Message to Our Folks is a striking and valuable contribution to our understanding of one of the world's premier musical groups.

Studies in historical improvisation : from Cantare super librum to Partimenti
edited by Massimiliano Guido
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
The improvisatory moment / Thomas Christensen -- Musical invention, rhetorical loci, and the art of memory / Stefano Lorenzetti -- Climbing the stairs of the memory palace : gestures at the keyboard for a flexible mind / Massimiliano Guido -- Toward a stylistic history of Cantare super librum / Philippe Canguilhem -- Contrapunto and fabordón : practices of extempore polyphony in Renaissance Spain / Giuseppe Fiorentino -- Discovering the practice of improvised counterpoint / Jean-Yves Haymoz -- Composing at the keyboard : Banchieri and Spiridion, two complementary methods / Edoardo Bellotti -- Partimento teaching according to Francesco Durante, investigated through the earliest manuscript sources / Peter van Tour -- Partimento and incomplete notations in eighteenth-century keyboard music / Giorgio Sanguinetti -- Teaching theory through improvisation / Peter Schubert -- Learning tonal counterpoint through keyboard improvsation in the twenty-first century / Michael Callahan.

In recent years, scholars and musicians have become increasingly interested in the revival of musical improvisation as it was known in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. This historically informed practice is now supplanting the late Romantic view of improvised music as a rhapsodic endeavour - a musical blossoming out of the capricious genius of the player - that dominated throughout the twentieth century. In the Renaissance and Baroque eras, composing in the mind (alla mente) had an important didactic function. For several categories of musicians, the teaching of counterpoint happened almost entirely through practice on their own instruments. This volume offers the first systematic exploration of the close relationship among improvisation, music theory and practical musicianship from late Renaissance into the Baroque era. It is not a historical survey per se, but rather aims to re-establish the importance of such a combination as a pedagogical tool for a better understanding of the musical idioms of these periods. The authors are concerned with the transferral of historical practices to the modern classroom, discussing new ways of revitalising the study and appreciation of early music. The relevance and utility of such an improvisation-based approach also changes our understanding of the balance between theoretical and practical sources in the primary literature, as well as the concept of music theory itself.
