Description

Scholars have become increasingly interested in rock music, but few of the many works published on the subject attempt to place the music itself under close and sophisticated scrutiny. This text brings together essays by several of musicology and music theory's young scholars who take a music-analytical perspective. Each essay explores the often complex musical structure of rock music, by such artists as the Beach Boys, the Grateful Dead, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Paul Simon, and k.d. lang. Richly illustrated with musical examples and transcriptions, these essays attempt to expand our understanding of the musical experience generally, and to suppress dividing lines between pop and art music and the way they are studied.show more
