Giving Credit Where It Is Due
What responsibility do we as writers have to authors, composers, and performers?
Should we treat musical texts (scores), performances (recordings), and
scholarship (books and articles) differently?
How can we responsibly represent the work and ideas of others in our own work?
My Thoughts on Integrity
When it comes to copying others' works, are all faults the same?
1. Making up a quotation that proves your point.
2. Rephrasing someone else's idea without attribution.
3. Forgetting to put quotation marks around someone else's words.
4. Writing an incomplete, incorrect, or otherwise sloppy footnote.
All considered academic offences at Western.
How to avoid these problems: be responsible with other peoples' words.
How do you deal with information responsibly?
Should We Treat Composers, Performers, and Scholars
Differently?
Whose ideas does a score transmit? Transmits the composers' intentions.
Therefore, to get a sense of the musical work, we must perform it.
Interpretation of the performer.
Recordings are set in stone: preserve the ideas of the performer, rather than
the composers' score.
Scores provide us with very valuable information.
