Music Research

Music Research

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.

Knowledge Based Programming For Music Research

Knowledge Based Programming For Music Research

In Knowledge-Based Programming for Music Research, Schaffer and McGee explore expert systems for applications in artificial intelligence (AI). The text concerns (1) basic principles for knowledge-based programming, (2) concepts and strategies for programming these systems, (3) a "universal data" model for music analysis, and (4) examples that concern specific aspects of design and application. The authors also investigate Prolog (programming in logic), one of the most widely used computer languages for AI, and base some of their applications on the recent implication-based theories of Eugene Narmour. Of the applications for programming a knowledge-based system, music analysis has the most potential. Beyond identifying isolated elements, it is possible to create programs that extend to chord structures and other, more complex structures. This kind of programming allows the authors to embed the rules of composition in the application and then extend the analysis throughout the musical work. It also allows them to arrive at the underlying principles for a given composition. As a tool for music analysis, such programming has profound implications for further growth. The text is designed for musicians at various levels and could also be used in courses on computer-music programming. Parts of the book have been successfully used in courses on computer programming for music research, with which the authors have direct experience. The text includes extensive examples of code for use in individual Prolog applications and a comprehensive bibliography.

Pascal Programming For Music Research

Pascal Programming For Music Research

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.

The New Handbook Of Research On Music Teaching And Learning

The New Handbook Of Research On Music Teaching And Learning

Featuring chapters by the world's foremost scholars in music education and cognition, this handbook is a convenient collection of current research on music teaching and learning. This comprehensive work includes sections on arts advocacy, music and medicine, teacher education, and studio instruction, among other subjects, making it an essential reference for music education programs. The original Handbook of Research on Music Teaching and Learning, published in 1992 with the sponsorship of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), was hailed as "a welcome addition to the literature on music education because it serves to provide definition and unity to a broad and complex field" (Choice). This new companion volume, again with the sponsorship of MENC, explores the significant changes in music and arts education that have taken place in the last decade. Notably, several chapters now incorporate insights from other fields to shed light on multi-cultural music education, gender issues in music education, and non-musical outcomes of music education. Other chapters offer practical information on maintaining musicians' health, training music teachers, and evaluating music education programs. Philosophical issues, such as musical cognition, the philosophy of research theory, curriculum, and educating musically, are also explored in relationship to policy issues. In addition to surveying the literature, each chapter considers the significance of the research and provides suggestions for future study. Covering a broad range of topics and addressing the issues of music education at all age levels, from early childhood to motivation and self-regulation, this handbook is an invaluable resource for music teachers, researchers, and scholars.
