Présentation de l'éditeur

This book explores the relationships between language, music, and the brain by pursuing four key themes and the crosstalk among them: song and dance as a bridge between music and language; multiple levels of structure from brain to behavior to culture; the semantics of internal and external worlds and the role of emotion; and the evolution and development of language. The book offers specially commissioned expositions of current research accessible both to experts across disciplines and to non-experts. These chapters provide the background for reports by groups of specialists that chart current controversies and future directions of research on each theme.

The book looks beyond mere auditory experience, probing the embodiment that links speech to gesture and music to dance. The study of the brains of monkeys and songbirds illuminates hypotheses on the evolution of brain mechanisms that support music and language, while the study of infants calibrates the developmental timetable of their capacities. The result is a unique book that will interest any reader seeking to learn more about language or music and will appeal especially to readers intrigued by the relationships of language and music with each other and with the brain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a turning point in XXth century music theory... 15 septembre 1999
Par pclima@ufba.br - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a turning point in XXth century music theory.It admits "surface salience" as an important musical attribute (chapter 5), distinguishing it from the "reductional importance" of events. Should we work with a double conception of structure: surface structure (focusing on surface salience) versus deep struture (focusing on reductional importance)? The investigation of surface salience leads to questions related to tension and release, an area that is still to find its best approach. What is best in the book: the ability to uncover the making of a theory; the ability to rejuvenate and integrate schenkerian ideas with a critique of Meyer's approach (rhythmic structure versus metrical structure); the linguistic/cognitive connection. What is not so good in the book: the remarks on contemporary music (with an almost fascist view of inherited abilities)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 very interesting, very technical 1 octobre 2003
Par Mikhail Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
This very technical work is very interesting and uses a very valuable and relatively new approach. However it is very conservative musically, to the point of losing subjectivity. I would recommend James Tenney's writings instead. META + HODOS: A Phenomenology of 20th-Century Musical Materials and an Approach to the Study of Form (1961; Frog Peak, 1988), is available through amazon, or Hierarchical temporal gestalt perception in music : a metric space model with Larry Polansky, also printed in Soundings Vol. 13: The Music of James Tenney. Garland, Peter (Ed.) (Soundings Press, 1984) which has articles by and about Tenney, who takes a much more progressive and broad view than Lerdahl.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting read on music 30 octobre 2008
Par M. E. Kluck - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book for a reading group organized by linguists, and think it's very interesting. It is not an easy read though, it takes time to decipher the proposed rules and sometimes it is not clear what the consequences of adopting those rules are. I don't know how comprehensible the book is for people with little formal or linguistic background, I do think that the authors aim to separate generative linguistic theory from the general idea that underlies it, and work from the latter perspective (not the first).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great formal theory of music, well-written 29 mars 1998
Par Richard Todd (rwtodd@aol.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
This formal theory of music does a great job of handling subjective and stylistic issues with different kinds of rules. Very well though-out. I wish they'd have worked out how counterpoint fits into their structure, but otherwise a great book.
