Composing Ambiguity: The Early Music of Morton Feldman

Composing Ambiguity: The Early Music of Morton Feldman by Alistair NobleAlistair Noble reveals key aspects of Morton Feldman's musical language as it developed during a crucial period in the early 1950s. Drawing models from primary sources, he shows that Feldman worked deliberately within a two-dimensional frame, allowing a focus upon the fundamental materials of sounding pitch in time. Through close reading of several important works, Noble shows that there is a remarkable consistency of compositional method, despite the varied experimental notations used by Feldman at this time. Indeed, much of the language developed by Feldman in this period was still in use...

Cuban Counterpoints: The Legacy of Fernando Ortiz

Elvis Costello and Thatcherism: A Psycho-Social Exploration

Elvis Costello and Thatcherism: A Psycho-Social Exploration by David Pilgrim & Richard OrmrodThe emergence of Thatcherism around 1980, which ushered in a period of neo-liberalism in British politics that still resonates today, led musicians, like other artists, to respond to their context of production.

Throughout the book examples are provided of Costello's songs and how they work musically to illustrate or stimulate the contextual discussion. The book will be of significant interest to musicologists, sociologists and social...
