The Ministerial And Congregational Singing Of Chant: A Study Of Practices And Preceptions In The Catholic Archdiocese Of Melbourne, Paul Taylor 2010 Australian Catholic University

The Ministerial And Congregational Singing Of Chant: A Study Of Practices And Preceptions In The Catholic Archdiocese Of Melbourne, Paul Taylor

Theses

This dissertation investigates the singing of chant by priests and people during Sunday Mass and the Church's liturgical year, in addition to the perceptions held by pastoral ministers concerning the use of chant in the post-Conciliar liturgy in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne. The dissertation was a response to a call for field studies of liturgical music in Catholic parishes in order to supplement the historical and musicological studies that have dominated liturgical music scholarship during the past century. The study was also undertaken in order to assess the extent to which the Second Vatican Council's vision of ...


Rescuing Tradition At The Pierre Verger Cultural Space: Teaching And Learning Afro-Brazilian Culture Through Music In Brazil, João Carlos Junqueira 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Rescuing Tradition At The Pierre Verger Cultural Space: Teaching And Learning Afro-Brazilian Culture Through Music In Brazil, João Carlos Junqueira

Musicology Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This study investigates how the Pierre Verger Cultural Space (PVCS), an educational organization dedicated to teaching Afro-Brazilian culture in Bahia, uses music to construct a sense of Afro-Brazilian self. Located in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of Salvador, Bahia, the PVCS sees its mission as “rescuing” (resgatar) an Afro-Brazilian sense of identity and it promotes a sense of self based on African descent that can contribute to the possibility of greater social inclusion among marginalized Afro-Brazilian youth. Learning music is an essential part of this rescuing mission. Based on fieldwork conducted in Bahia between 2007 and 2009, this dissertation describes how the ...


Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Beyond The Myth Of East-West Hybridity: An Analysis Of Lou Harrison's Works For Gamelan And Western Instruments, Rachel Elizabeth Chacko

Music Theory Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Frequently cited as being among Lou Harrison’s most important East-West fusions, the works for Indonesian gamelan and Western instruments have served as emblems of Harrison’s distinctive transcultural voice. Yet, as my research shows, treating these pieces as hybrids between East and West creates a limited frame for understanding Harrison’s compositional interests. While these pieces outwardly display his life-long interest in Asian musics and his penchant for combining disparate musical styles within a single composition, hidden beneath this timbral juxtaposition lies a compositional complexity far more essential to Harrison’s creative process. More than blending East and West ...

Women, The Recited Qur’An, And Islamic Music In Indonesia, Anne K. Rasmussen

Books

Women, the Recited Qur'an, and Islamic Music in Contemporary Indonesia takes readers to the heart of religious musical praxis in Indonesia, home to the largest Muslim population in the world. Anne K. Rasmussen explores a rich public soundscape, where women recite the divine texts of the Qur'an, and where an extraordinary diversity of Arab-influenced Islamic musical styles and genres, also performed by women, flourishes. Based on unique and revealing ethnographic research beginning at the end of Suharto's "New Order" and continuing into the era of "Reformation," the book considers the powerful.

From Disco To Electronic Music: Following The Evolution Of Dance Culture Through Music Genres, Venues, Laws, And Drugs., Ambrose Colombo

Electronic dance music is a genre that has been long in the making. Starting with disco in the 1970s, dance culture genres evolved into house, acid house, techno, garage, 2-step, hardcore, gabba, san frandisco, electro, and many others. This paper studies the transformation of electronic sound, and the contributing/impeding factors involved. Drug use is heavily related to the creation and enjoyment of music, and features prominently in the history of dance culture. Starting with the use of acid in the 1960s and progressing to the use of acid, Quaaludes, poppers, speed in the 1970s, with MDA featured in clubs ...


Creating Salsa, Claiming Salsa: Identity, Location, And Authenticity In Global Popular Music, William Guthrie LeGrand 2010 University of Northern Iowa

Creating Salsa, Claiming Salsa: Identity, Location, And Authenticity In Global Popular Music, William Guthrie Legrand

Theses and Dissertations @ UNI

Although Latin American ethnomusicological scholarship in the last twenty years has addressed much of the Caribbean, particularly Cuba, the popular genre salsa has often been treated as a side project of scholars with other specialties. Much of previous Latin American scholarship has favored nation-based, particularly folkloric, genres, while current trends have largely moved toward either re-engaging nation-based scholarship within postmodern critical contexts or addressing reggaeton as part of the scholarly fascination with global hip-hop culture. Salsa, which has always been created, contested, and claimed. through transnational/global routes, has therefore often been marginalized through its continued association with Latin American ...
