Sublime Noise [PDF / Epub] ☉ Sublime Noise ❤ Josh Epstein – Capitalsoftworks.co.uk When Stravinsky's Rite of Spring premiered in Paris in 1913 the crowd rioted in response to the harsh dissonance and jarring rhythms of its score This was noise not music In Sublime Noise Josh Epstein When Stravinsky's Rite of Spring premiered in Paris in the crowd rioted in response to the harsh dissonance and jarring rhythms of its score This was noise not music In Sublime Noise Josh Epstein examines the significance of noise in modernist music and literature How and why did composers and writers incorporate the noises of modern industry warfare and big city life into their workEpstein argues that as the creative class engaged with the racket of cityscapes and new media they reconsidered not just the aesthetic of music but also its cultural effects Noise after all is than a sonic category it is a cultural value judgment a way of abating and categorizing the sounds of a social space or of new music Pulled into dialogue with modern music's innovative rhythms noise signaled the breakdown of art's autonomy from social life even the old favorites of Beethoven and Wagner took on new cultural meanings when circulated in noisy modern contexts The use of noise also opened up the closed space of art to the pressures of publicity and technological mediationBuilding both on literary cultural studies and work in the new musicology Sublime Noise examines the rich material relationship that exists between music and literature Through close readings of modernist authors including James Joyce T S Eliot Edith Sitwell E M Forster and Ezra Pound and composers including George Antheil William Walton Erik Satie and Benjamin Britten Epstein offers a radically contemporary account of musical literary interactions that goes well beyond pure formalism This book will be of interest to scholars of Anglophone literary modernism and to musicologists interested in how music was given new literary and cultural meaning during that complex interdisciplinary period.

    If you only read one book this yearno let me correct myself If you only buy one book this year make it this one Why? I don't need no stinking reason


  2. Elan Mudrow Elan Mudrow says:

    A scholarly treatise of Modernist literature and early twentieth century musical forms Overall the book lacks a tad bit of soul and should be read only by those interested in literary and musical theory
