Music, Analysis, Experience
New Perspectives in Musical Semiotics
Edited by Constantino Maeder, Mark Reybrouck
Musical semiotics no longer ignores the fundamental challenges raised by cognitive sciences, ethology, or linguistics. Creation, action, and experience play an increasing role in how we understand music, a sounding structure impinging upon our body, our mind, and the world we live in. An integral experience of music demands a transdisciplinary dialogue with other domains as well.
Music, Analysis, Experience brings together contributions by semioticians, performers, and scholars from cognitive sciences, philosophy, and cultural studies, and deals with fundamental questions. Transdisciplinary and intermedial approaches to music meet musicologically oriented contributions to classical music, pop music, South American song, opera, narratology, and philosophy.
