The Features Of The Voice Of African American Tradition: An Analysis Of African American Rhetoric For The Influence Of The Call Response Technique, Laura Venezia 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

The Features Of The Voice Of African American Tradition: An Analysis Of African American Rhetoric For The Influence Of The Call Response Technique, Laura Venezia

Communication Studies

This project explicates the nature of the rhetorical strategies, especially the call response, used by various African American artists and orators (Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and Public Enemy). The techniques include the interplay of repetition and heightening emotion provided especially through 1. using the “call response” directly, 2. announcing jeremiad warnings and rallying cries, and 3. using potent images to arouse emotions—the objective correlative.


Recording The Musical Past: The Harpsichord And The Phonograph, 1920-1930, Edmond Johnson 2010 Occidental College

Recording The Musical Past: The Harpsichord And The Phonograph, 1920-1930, Edmond Johnson

Edmond Johnson

On September 15, 1920, the Gramophone Company held a lavish reception in a London hotel to mark the release of four discs recorded by the British harpsichordist Violet Gordon Woodhouse. As the first significant commercial harpsichord recordings, these discs were widely hailed as a cultural milestone, though many contemporary reviewers also noted the difficulty presented in reproducing the instrument’s modest tone given the limitations of the acoustic recording process used at the time. While the following years saw a small number of additional releases, it was only with the introduction of electrical recording in 1925 that harpsichord recordings truly ...

Protest Music Of The Vietnam War: Description And Classification Of Various Protest Songs., Amanda Marie Carr-Wilcoxson 2010 East Tennessee State University

Protest Music Of The Vietnam War: Description And Classification Of Various Protest Songs., Amanda Marie Carr-Wilcoxson

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The Vietnam War and subsequent protest movement remains one of the most tumultuous times in U.S. history. This thesis is an attempt to define and describe the protest movement as well as the varied popular protest songs that came from this era. Building on a previous study written by Elizabeth Kizer, this thesis creates sub-categories in which the protest music falls into.

The first two chapters of this study help by giving historical context to the songs by describing the Vietnam War and then the protest movement in the U.S. The final chapter then deals with popular protest ...

Conservative Radical: Martin Luther’S Influence On Congregational Singing, Jonathan Knight 2010 Cedarville University

Conservative Radical: Martin Luther’S Influence On Congregational Singing, Jonathan Knight

B.A. in Music Senior Capstone Projects

Martin Luther played an influential role in the transition from the priest-dominated Catholic worship to congregationally accessible evangelical services. This study demonstrates that, though his musical reforms were not dramatic, they were intentional and effective. Luther’s understanding of music theologically, theoretically, and practically enabled him to effectively utilize available musical resources to make music increasingly accessible, for the purpose of teaching the Word of God. Through Luther’s hymns, people began proclaiming the Word of God musically. Through liturgical reform, Luther provided congregations with a framework through which to incorporate congregational song in the liturgy. Through music education, Luther ...


The Testimonial Aesthetics Of Different Trains, Amy Lynn Wlodarski 2010 Dickinson College

The Testimonial Aesthetics Of Different Trains, Amy Lynn Wlodarski

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

Often praised as an exceptional artistic response to the Holocaust, Steve Reich's Different Trains adopts a documentary approach to Holocaust representation in which Reich assembled short excerpts from three survivor testimonies and published transcriptions of their accounts in his libretto for the work. This article explores the consequences that arise when fragments from very emotional testimonies are recast as purportedly unmediated documentary. The authority attributed to this sort of historical narrative has come under scrutiny in the field of Holocaust studies, in which it is called “secondary witness”—an intellectual interpretation of survivor testimonies advanced without the author revealing ...

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 ...

A History Of Opera In Boston, John R. Tedesco 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

A History Of Opera In Boston, John R. Tedesco

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

This thesis examines the cultural context of opera in Boston between the years 1620 to 2010. Specifically, I look at how the Boston Opera Company was founded, its existence, and its ultimate demise. The rise of opera in colonial Boston is also explored and especially how the immigration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries influenced the city. Around this time of changing demographics Eben D. Jordan, Jr., of Jordan Marsh Co. decided to build an opera house for the city of Boston.

The effects that Puritanism had on music and the culture of Boston during its early years ...
