Musical Meaning and Interpretation
The Musical Meaning and Interpretation series explores expressive motivations behind musical structures and the ways in which listeners and performers interpret musical works and practices. Subject areas range from reconstructions of stylistic meaning to close interpretations of individual works and critical studies of aesthetic theories. The series features a wide variety of repertoire (including early, recent, popular, world music, and mixed media), approaches (including historical, theoretical, philosophical, cultural, critical, semiotic, hermeneutic, cognitive,) and themes(including subjectivity/agency/voice, gesture/movement, topic, trope, genre/expressive genre, drama/narrativity, gender/sexuality, intertextuality), with the shared focus of musical signification.
