Chants and Chance

Description:
AURELIAN'S TONES: THE CAROLINGIAN _OCTOECHOS_ REVEALED BARBARA HAGGH-HUGLO, Professor of Musicology It is assumed in virtually all musicological scholarship that Gregorian chants are classified in eight tones according to their musical characteristics. A close reading of the ninth-century 'Musica disciplina' leads Professor Haggh-Huglo to conclude that the tones are psalm recitation pitches. She explores the considerable consequences of this new interpretation. ASKING QUESTIONS DORA HANNINEN, Associate Professor of Music Theory Analysts of John Cages music face many challenges, and not only of methodology. Even more fundamental is the need to articulate an appropriate ethic of music analysis. This paper considers aspects of intention; the ecology of musical sound; and the politics, nature, and purpose of music analysis, as it develops an ethic of analysis as a non-reductive, transformative activity. {Will appear in FYI on Dec 4, 2012
