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...

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.

Twentieth-Century Music and Politics: Essays in Memory of Neil Edmunds by FaircloughWhen considering the role music played in the major totalitarian regimes of the century it is music's usefulness as propaganda that leaps first to mind.

Nationality, self/other, power and ideology are the dominant themes of this book, while key topics include: music in totalitarian regimes; music as propaganda; music and national identity; émigré communities and composers; music's role in shaping identities of 'self' and 'other' and...

"Venceremos": Victor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement

"Venceremos": Victor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement by Gabriel San Roman

When the socialist politician Salvador Allende dramatically won Chile's presidential election in 1970, a powerful cultural movement accompanied him to power as folk singers emerged at the forefront proving that music could help forge the birth of a new society. "Venceremos" charts the development of such a cultural phenomenon from the years before Allende's victorious campaign to the brutal U.S.-backed military coup on September 11, 1973, which ousted his presidency and imposed the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. The bloody repression that followed would claim the life of Víctor Jara,...
