The Great Woman Singer : Gender and Voice in Puerto Rican Music screenshot
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0822362937 | 308 Pages | PDF | 4 MB
Licia Fiol-Matta traces the careers of four iconic Puerto Rican singers—Myrta Silva, Ruth Fernandez, Ernestina Reyes, and Lucecita Benitez—to explore how their voices and performance style transform the possibilities for comprehending the figure of the woman singer. Fiol-Matta shows how these musicians, despite seemingly intractable demands to represent gender norms, exercised their artistic and political agency by challenging expectations of how they should look, sound, and act. Fiol-Matta also breaks with conceptualizations of the female pop voice as spontaneous and intuitive, interrogating the notion of'the great woman singer'to deploy her concept of the'thinking voice'—an event of music, voice, and listening that rewrites dominant narratives. Anchored in the work of Lacan, Foucault, and others, Fiol-Matta's theorization of voice and gender in The Great Woman Singer makes accessible the singing voice's conceptual dimensions while revealing a dynamic archive of Puerto Rican and Latin American popular music.

Epistrophies: Jazz and the Literary Imagination by Brent Hayes Edwards screenshot
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0674055438 | 336 pages | PDF | 4 MB
In 1941 Thelonious Monk and Kenny Clarke copyrighted Epistrophy, one of the best-known compositions of the bebop era. The song s title refers to a literary device the repetition of a word or phrase at the end of successive clauses that is echoed in the construction of the melody. Written two decades later, Amiri Baraka s poem Epistrophe alludes slyly to Monk s tune. Whether it is composers finding formal inspiration in verse or a poet invoking the sound of music, hearing across media is the source of innovation in black art.

Contemporary Film Music Investigating Cinema Narratives and Composition screenshot
English | 2017 | ISBN: 1137573740 | 290 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The purpose of this book, through its very creation, is to strengthen the dialogue between practitioner and theorist. To that end, a film academic, a composer, and a composer/musicologist have collaborated as editors on this book, which is in turn comprised of interviews with composers alongside complementary chapters that focus on a particular feature of the composer’s approach or style, written by a musicologist or film academic who specializes in that particular element of the composer’s output. In the interview portions of this book, eight major film composers discuss their work from the early 1980s to the present day. The focus is on the practical considerations of film composition, the relationship each composer has with the moving image, technical considerations, personal motivations in composing, the relationships composers have with their directors, and their own creative processes. Contemporary Film Music also explores the contemporary influence of electronic music, issues surrounding the mixing of soundtracks, music theory, and the evolution of composers’ musical voices.

The Cambridge Companion to Wagner by Thomas S. Grey screenshot
English | Publisher: Cambridge University Press, 2008 | 388 Pages | epub+pdf (conv.) | 5,4 MB
Richard Wagner is remembered as one of the most influential figures in music and theatre, but his place in history has been marked by a considerable amount of controversy. His attitudes towards the Jews and the appropriation of his operas by the Nazis, for example, have helped to construct a historical persona that sits uncomfortably with modern sensibilities. Yet Wagner's absolutely central position in the operatic canon continues.
