Music Research Summary : This text is designed to help music students become familiar with and use the many research tools available to them. The content is arranged by type of research tool (e.g., encyclopedias, periodical indexes, discographies) and includes a general statement about the uses of each tool and an annotated bibliography that points out their purpose, scope, strengths, and weaknesses. Covering both print and electronic resources, the text does not attempt to be exhaustive but rather guides students to the major research tools in music. A companion Web site maintained by the author helps keep the material up to date. Intended primarily for music bibliography classes taken by almost all students entering graduate music programs, the text is also a useful supplement for any undergraduate or graduate class in music that requires students to do library research or write a research paper.

Music Research Summary : This book compiles revised versions of a number of the papers originally delivered at the Twenty-Fifth National Conference of the Musicological Society of Australia, held in Newcastle, New South Wales, between 3 and 6 October 2002. Aside from the three keynote addresses, all the papers published here have been refereed and peer reviewed. Like this publication, the conference was entitled Music Research: new directions for a new century. Papers were invited under four main themes: Research through Performance, Music and Society, Music and Technology, and Structure and Context. The three keynote speakers addressed the first three of these, Roy Howat and Suzanne Cusick approaching from different perspectives, respectively, the relationship between performance and research, and the relationship of both to music in society, while Rolf Gehlhaar discussed the many ways in which music can now interface with technology. List of Contributors Roy Howat, Marie-Louise CAtsalis, Rosalind Halton, Prudence Dunstone, Jacqueline Ogeil, Daniela Kaleva, Alan Maddox, Ikuno Sako, Johanna Selleck, Patricia Duke, Frank Murphy, John Napier, Suzan Cusick, Katelyn Barney, Elizabeth Mackinlay, Steven Knopoff, Brydie-Leigh Bartleet, Tim Humphrey, Roland Bannister, Antonio Tony Colla, Antonio Comin, Gabriela Vardanega, Linda Kouvaras, Jason Geary, David Irving, Anne-Marie Forbes, Peter Freeman, Julia Lu, Deborah Priest, Patricia Shaw, Jennifer Shaw, Rolf Gelhaar, Cathy Cox, Eddy Chong, Ruth Lee Martin, Dennis Collins, Nicholas Routley, Andrew Robbie, Jason Stoessel, John Phillips.

Computer applications in music research Summary : At the conference “musicology 1966-2000: a practical program, ” on May 26, 1966, Jan LaRue speculated “that computer analysis will become one of the most important directions in musicology for the next generation...” Having passed the year 2000, we have to realize that LaRue's prediction did not come true: neither for computer-assisted music analysis, nor for computer-applications in music research in general. This volume is intended to initiate a more critical discussion of computer-applications in music research and to present concepts, methods, and results of newest research in this area.

Sourcebook for Research in Music Summary : The Sourcebook for Research in Music, in this revised and greatly expanded second edition, is an invaluable guide to the researcher in navigating the vast proliferation of materials in music research. The editors emphasize English-language and recent sources, and also include essential materials in other languages. An opening chapter of introductory materials, including a list of common bibliographical terms with definitions, German and French bibliographical terms, and the plan of the Library of Congress and the Dewey Decimal music classification systems, is followed by seven bibliographical chapters, covering lists of sources as well as collective annotations that introduce and identify specific items. A reference tool containing varied information relating to research in music, the Sourcebook will serve as a classroom text and as a resource for individual music researchers, librarians, faculty members, students, performing and teaching musicians, and musical amateurs.

Women in Music Summary : Women in Music: A Research and Information Guide is an annotated bibliography emerging from more than twenty-five years of feminist scholarship on music. This book testifies to the great variety of subjects and approaches represented in over two decades of published writings on women, their work, and the important roles that feminist outlooks have played in formerly male-oriented academic scholarship or journalistic musings on women and music.

Pascal Programming for Music Research Summary : Pascal Programming for Music Research addresses those who wish to develop the programming skills necessary for doing computer-assisted music research, particularly in the fields of music theory and musicology. Many of the programming techniques are also applicable to computer assisted instruction (CAI), composition, and music synthesis. The programs and techniques can be implemented on personal computers or larger computer systems using standard Pascal compilers and will be valuable to anyone in the humanities creating data bases. Among its useful features are: -complete programs, from simple illustrations to substantial applications; -beginning programming through such advanced topics as linked data structures, recursive algorithms, DARMS translation, score processing; -bibliographic references at the end of each chapter to pertinent sources in music theory, computer science, and computer applications in music; -exercises which explore and extend topics discussed in the text; -appendices which include a DARMS translator and a library of procedures for building and manipulating a linked representation of scores; -most algorithms and techniques that are given in Pascal programming translate easily to other computer languages. Beginning, as well as advanced, programmers and anyone interested in programming music applications will find this book to be an invaluable resource.

📒This Is Your Brain On Music by Daniel J. Levitin

This Is Your Brain on Music Summary : In this groundbreaking union of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between music—its performance, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it—and the human brain. Taking on prominent thinkers who argue that music is nothing more than an evolutionary accident, Levitin poses that music is fundamental to our species, perhaps even more so than language. Drawing on the latest research and on musical examples ranging from Mozart to Duke Ellington to Van Halen, he reveals: • How composers produce some of the most pleasurable effects of listening to music by exploiting the way our brains make sense of the world • Why we are so emotionally attached to the music we listened to as teenagers, whether it was Fleetwood Mac, U2, or Dr. Dre • That practice, rather than talent, is the driving force behind musical expertise • How those insidious little jingles (called earworms) get stuck in our head A Los Angeles Times Book Award finalist, This Is Your Brain on Music will attract readers of Oliver Sacks and David Byrne, as it is an unprecedented, eye-opening investigation into an obsession at the heart of human nature.
