Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca 2015 University of Akron

Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Akron Law Publications

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

Rama, Raga And Rava: A Study On The Implicit Cultural Connections And Complementary Nature Of Music And Culinary Arts In India, Aaron Schwartz 2014 Chapman University

Rama, Raga And Rava: A Study On The Implicit Cultural Connections And Complementary Nature Of Music And Culinary Arts In India, Aaron Schwartz

e-Research: A Journal of Undergraduate Work

The relation between food and music is strong and readily apparent in the cultural traditions of India. The importance of the relation goes so far that relevance falls on what song the chef listens to while they prepare a meal, and what is being played while the meal is eaten. The musical pitch is intricately connected to the taste of the food, with bitter flavor represented by lower pitch and sweeter flavor represented by higher pitch. People will report experiencing different sensations upon reacting to identical food products, based on the music that accompanies that meal. The effect of this ...


Hear After: Matters Of Life And Death In David Tudor’S Electronic Music, You Nakai 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Hear After: Matters Of Life And Death In David Tudor’S Electronic Music, You Nakai

communication +1

In David Tudor’s electronic music, home-brew modular devices were carefully connected together to form complex feedback networks wherein all components—including the composer/performer himself—could only partially ‘influence’ one another. Once activated, the very instability of mismatched connections between the components triggered a cascade of signals and signal modulations, so that the work “composed itself,” and took “a life of its own.” Due to this self-producing, perpetuating nature of his works, Tudor insisted on what he called “the view from inside,” focusing more on the internal observation of his devices and sound than in materials external to the ...


Toward A Postmodern Avant-Garde: Labour, Virtuosity, And Aesthetics In An American New Music Ensemble, John R. Pippen 2014 Western University

Toward A Postmodern Avant-Garde: Labour, Virtuosity, And Aesthetics In An American New Music Ensemble, John R. Pippen

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation examines the aesthetic beliefs and labour practices of the American new music ensemble eighth blackbird (lower-case intentional). Drawing on ethnographic research conducted with the ensemble for the past six years, I show how the ensemble responds to specific cultural pressures endemic to the classical music scene, its new music vanguard, and to the contemporary United States. eighth blackbird, I argue, has created an ensemble identity and performance style designed to satisfy numerous audience positions, from experts well-versed in the intricacies of musical techniques to lay-persons unacquainted with the values and practices of new or classical music. This attempt ...


Reviving Scottish Fiddling: An Ethnographic Study Of Scottish Fiddling Competitions In The United States, Deanna Nebel 2014 Kent State University

Reviving Scottish Fiddling: An Ethnographic Study Of Scottish Fiddling Competitions In The United States, Deanna Nebel

Excellence in Performing Arts Research

This paper examines the Scottish fiddling revival in America. Due to its rapid fusion into other fiddling styles, Scottish fiddling did not establish itself as a unique musical genre in the United States. One particular organization, titled “Scottish Fiddling Revival,” or “F.I.R.E.,” is largely responsible for the revival and has established all of the necessary elements within a revival framework to stimulate and maintain this style of fiddling. The organization sponsors official Scottish fiddling competitions, provides teachers to educate and maintain the style, and fosters a community to interact with the revival. This study examines the revival ...


The Many Disguises Of Susanna: A Comparison Of The 1786 Premiere And The 1789 Revival Of Mozart’S "Le Nozze Di Figaro", Rosemary Heredos 2014 Kent State University

The Many Disguises Of Susanna: A Comparison Of The 1786 Premiere And The 1789 Revival Of Mozart’S "Le Nozze Di Figaro", Rosemary Heredos

Excellence in Performing Arts Research

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera buffa, Le nozze di Figaro features a strong, memorable female character named Susanna, who is the countess’ maid. Mozart reworked and even changed much of Susannah’s part, rewriting both of Susanna’s arias for the Vienna revival production in 1789. Through particular study of “Al desio di chi t'adora,” which replaced “Deh, vieni, non tardar,” we can gain a better understanding of the evolution of this progressive, innovative character. I propose that the development of Susanna’s character through this aria, as well as the opera as a whole, exemplifies the growing awareness ...
