Music After Deleuze (Deleuze Encounters)

By Edward Campbell

Music After Deleuze explores how Deleuzian strategies supply fascinating methods of brooding about quite a lot of musics. The strategies of distinction, identification and repetition supply novel ways to Western paintings song from Beethoven to Boulez and Bernhard Lang in addition to jazz improvisation, well known and sacred song. The ideas of the ‘rhizome', the ‘assemblage' and the ‘refrain' permit us to consider the specificity of musical works because the assembly of efficient forces, for instance within the modern opera of Dusapin and the experimental tune theatre of Aperghis. The ideas of soft and striated area shape the place to begin for musical and political reflections on pitch in Western and jap track. Deleuze's concept of time as a number of illumines the certain conceptions of musical time present in Debussy, Messiaen, Boulez, Carter and Grisey. eventually, the leading edge semiotic concept cast in Deleuze-Guattarian philosophy deals priceless insights for a semiotics in a position to attractive with the cutting edge, molecular song of Lachenmann, Aperghis and Levinas.

The composers whose paintings has been thought of during this bankruptcy current quite a lot of temporal chances from Messiaen’s eclectic amassing of insights to Boulez’s a lot leaner paring down of percentages; from Stockhausen’s temporal experiments, Carter’s polyrhythms, poltemporality, metric modulation and experiments with temporal succession and simultaneity to Grisey’s phenomenological cartography, no longer of pulses yet of layers of time and temporal time worlds. The enquiry may possibly, in fact, move directly to much more fresh experiments, for instance within the paintings of Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf (Coulembier 2013). the collection of probabilities that's precise right here less than the identify of ‘Deleuze’ on no account arrogates all innovation within the taking into consideration musical time for Deleuze, and it really is transparent that almost all of the composers whose paintings is taken into account the following produced their temporal techniques independently of Deleuze. Nor does it objective to offer him the credits for the real paintings on time undertaken via different philosophers, composers and musicologists. ‘Deleuze’, during this context, is a reputation for a collective assemblage of enunciation, to not be stressed with the historic Gilles Deleuze. this isn't to assert that the identify ‘Deleuze’ is synonymous with every thing and whatever concerning musical time and critical limits, during this regard, were already said. Carter notes the multiplicity of techniques and the seeming impossibility of integrating them inside a coherent framework, in addition to the level to which they appear to be at the same time 132 track After Deleuze incomprehensible, offering what Lyotard might time period a ‘differend’. Deleuze, in a feeling, dissolves this challenge by means of removal the ‘either . . . or’ good judgment during which it really is frequently framed, exchanging it with the ‘and . . . and . . . and’ common sense of the disjunctive synthesis. A post-Leibnizian common sense now prevails the place, as with the heterophony of bankruptcy 1 or the temporal simultaneity of bankruptcy four, a chain of percentages, that needn't be compossible with each other, can inhere whilst with no worry of exclusion at the grounds of contradiction. five A Deleuzian semiotics of tune I n the fields of tune research and aesthetics, a key sector of analysis that built because of the structuralist style in France is that of the semiotics and semiology of tune. whereas the large diversity of semiotic or semiological theories is incapable of straightforward methodological relief, all of them proportion a priority with song as a sign-based discourse. For Kofi Agawu, the semiotics of tune is ‘a plural and irreducibly interdisciplinary box’ which gives a framework for considering song structurally and stylistically, and that is exemplified within the multiplicity of techniques pioneered by means of JeanJacques Nattiez, Eero Tarasti, Kofi Agawu, Márta Grabócz, Raymond Monelle, Robert Hatten and others (Agawu 2009, p. 9). the place the semiotics/semiology of tune built a great deal inside of a structuralist context, Deleuze is a post-structuralist thinker. He recognizes that it was once in Umberto Eco’s The Open paintings that he chanced on the absence of any type of centre or element of convergence in ‘modern’ paintings works, as awareness shifted from buildings and codes to fluxes and multiplicities (Deleuze 1994, p.
