Identifying culture
Homology: a structural parallel between a given culture/society and an expression (e.g.
dance, literature, visual art, etc.)
Shared values are repeated through the expression
Ex. heavy metal headbanging as a demonstration of power and speed
Ex. Aaron Copeland’s “Hoedown”
Ideal “American” music
Object and literature as culturally symbolic
Objects: demonstrable products of cultural values
Ex. weapon-like instruments in metal produced by themes of power, violence
Literature: texts can be “read” to identify cultural values
Ex. Allen Ginsburg’s poem Howl as demonstrating 1950s/60s era counterculture
Rejection of conservative and mainstream America in 1950s
Ex. opera, ballet, and orchestral music owe to the values of middle nad upper-
class society (e.g. wealth, opulence and grandeur)
Simon Frith
British cultural theorist specializing in popular music
Part of the “Birmingham school” of sociology
Focus on the mass media
“Post-structuralist “ thought
“Culture as process
Culture as an accumulation and interlocking of activities
What ‘we do’, not what ‘already is’
Sharing an experience together
Our ability to change culture comes from action
People may change the structure, people are not defined by the structure
Musical activities are the cause of culture
More than symbolic of cultural values
The relationship between identity (self) and culture (us)
Social groups form groups (cultures) through individual/social interests and cultural
activity, not by values
“The Mobile Self”
Music offers a sense of both self and others, of the subjective in the collective
Subjective - how we see ourselves relative to others (being a part of, or separate
from)
How we see ourselves and understand our relationship to others can be defined or
rewritten through musical activities
What are the music related activities that give rise to culture?
