Redefining The Performance Degree Curriculum For The Crossover Saxophonist, Ian M. Cruz 2017 University of Kentucky

Redefining The Performance Degree Curriculum For The Crossover Saxophonist, Ian M. Cruz

Theses and Dissertations--Music

Many collegiate saxophone performance degree programs are overwhelmingly classical, adopting from other performance programs in the Western music tradition. However, there is a growing number of saxophone compositions that are “crossover” in nature. Crossover is a term used to describe the fusion of popular music styles in a classical setting. There is also evidence that collegiate music education as a whole is moving towards a more diverse curriculum, which emphasizes ethnomusicology. Due to this trend in composition and education, it is becoming increasingly important that saxophonists have the training of both classical and jazz disciplines.

The problem is that while ...

Thin Blue Seam, Sebastian Anton-Ojeda 2017 Bard College

Thin Blue Seam, Sebastian Anton-Ojeda

Senior Projects Spring 2017

This performance began as an exploration of liminal spaces in the context of a post-modern world. The lines between a suburban, consumptive society, fraught with binaries and thresholds while on the fringes of nature, were what interested me the most. However, this line of thought quickly took me to far more ancient places, to a view of nature driven by animism and pervaded by spiritual introspection. In Celtic Ireland, to give an example, every stone and river is witness to a myth. The Celts of the old world as described by anthropologist Marie-Louise Sjoestedt are constantly straddling the line between ...


“Ain’T It A Pretty Night?”: An Analysis Of Carlisle Floyd’S Susannah As An Allegory For The Socio-Political Culture Of The United States In The 1950s, Melissa L. Allen 2017 James Madison University

“Ain’T It A Pretty Night?”: An Analysis Of Carlisle Floyd’S Susannah As An Allegory For The Socio-Political Culture Of The United States In The 1950s, Melissa L. Allen

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

This capstone thesis discusses the applicability of Carlisle Floyd’s 1955 opera, Susannah, as an allegory for the socio-political climate of the United States in the 1950s. In order to do so, a musical analysis of the opera’s score was then performed for its use of folk song conventions and verismo operatic conventions. The libretto was analyzed for the use of social conventions of Southern Appalachia. Characters actions and musical content were then judged on whether (1) their actions were in line with the social conventions of traditional Appalachian culture and (2) if their musical content used/reflected conventions ...


A Study Of Acculturation In Chinese-Mongolian Er’Rentai Folk Opera, Luyin Shao 2017 University of Kentucky

A Study Of Acculturation In Chinese-Mongolian Er’Rentai Folk Opera, Luyin Shao

Theses and Dissertations--Music

Er’rentai, or Mongolian dance and song duets, is a genre of folk opera in the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region. Er’rentai performances can be categorized into two styles—the “western-style” and the “eastern-style.” The aim of this thesis is to explore the acculturation in Chinese-Mongolian er’rentai genre in the following ways. First, I address the historical background of the western-style er’rentai. Then, I draw on fieldwork with Huo Banzhu, a famous er’rentai musician, to introduce contemporary state of er’rentai's development. Finally, I employ musical analysis to demonstrate the borrowings of Mongolian music and culture ...


Romani Musicians: The Fantasy Of The Exotic In Film And Popular Culture, Grace Coleman 2017 University of Iowa

Romani Musicians: The Fantasy Of The Exotic In Film And Popular Culture, Grace Coleman

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis critically investigates the appropriation, marginalization, and romanticization of Roma as an ethnic group, specifically as these issues relate to the musical performative abilities of Roma displayed in popular culture. Through a critical examination of numerous films depicting Roma throughout Europe and North America, I explore how depictions within popular culture perpetuate limiting stereotypes that impede cultural empowerment and social integration. Contrasting representations in Western and Eastern European films, including analyses of a variety of stereotypical themes across numerous Roma films, especially focusing on their relationship with performance and music, I argue that generalizations and misconceptions of Roma rooted ...


How Native American Rappers Communicate And Create A Modern Identity, Hannah J. Berge 2017 James Madison University

How Native American Rappers Communicate And Create A Modern Identity, Hannah J. Berge

Masters Theses

Current research concerning identity and Native Americans is sparse outside the realm of expressly Native American scholarship. While most conversations about identity and Native Americans focuses on historical and political aspects, many sources do not explore alternative avenues of contemporary identity creation. This thesis uses Kenneth Burke’s pentad to analyze the lyrics for “AbOriginal” by Frank Waln. The pentad is used to analyze each line of the rap. A new term, alter-agent, is used to identify agents who the agent either associates with or who the agent views as hindering his progress. There is then a count of the ...
