Violence and the sound performance of music Two interrelated aspects: Sound and musics acoustic properties Musicsound as a social(for instance- if you have a 100 people all singing the same thing, we would say there is one melody and it is this loud- we would call that a technical description of the sound of music) There is the way that music sound and the way it is organizaed in the structure of sound Effect, socialization, significance etc. Ex: war music(fifie and drum,bugles, etc.) -the tradition of piphin band lives in a number of places some are trotted out in civil war reenactments etc. -the significance attached to that patriotic duty and struggle is -the phiphes are not going to be obsecured by the sound of music, useful for giving people courage, drawing people together by using songs that people know. -when we talk about sound physical and cognitive attributes of sound. -the chapter about the sound of music. Johnson and Cloonan: focused on popular music, so priviledging music as recorded sound, etc. They are thinking about music as a recoded thing. What do they mean by music(defination they give you is vv open) and violence. -the sound of music- 1. The way it sounds 2. the way it is made so think about things like performance, inscription, what is the texture of thing that we have mad e music in to, and the technical perameters of musical sound. Pitch has to do with how high or low a sound is- technical aspect of sound production. Recording(inscription)- how music is turned into a thing The location of sound(inscription) where the music is located(is there a stage etc) -how do we listen to pieces of music? - say something about how music is organized and performed? - analyse and pick apart music. -* pitch, rhythm which goes to show you that western analytical methods have prioritized pictch and to a certain lesser amount rhythm aswell. -what are the instruments? Is it a human voice?what particular drums? Human voices? How many? Electric instruments? Acoustic? Synthesized instruments? Think about violence how loud a particular sound is. Music of extreme volume used in these massicistic kind of experiences of dance pleasure and concert type experiences. -technique of trying to deprive prisoners of sleep to break down experience .
