Die Sache F R Die Mein Leben Einsteht Studien Zu Leben Und Werk Des Wiener Komponisten Hans Rott from the Author: Uwe Harten. »Was die Musik an ihm verloren hat, ist gar nicht zu ermessen.« Gustav Mahler war es, der sich im Jahre 1900 in dieser Weise über seinen früheren Studienkollegen Hans Rott (1858–1884) äußerte. Trotzdem dauerte es noch fast 90 Jahre, bevor die Musikwelt auf den mit nicht einmal 26 Jahren in der Psychiatrie verstorbenen Komponisten aufmerksam wurde: Die 1989 erfolgte Uraufführung der beeindruckenden E-Dur-Symphonie, die Rott im Alter von 22 Jahren vollendet hatte, bildete hierbei den Ausgangspunkt für die Wiederentdeckung des Bruckner-Schülers und Wagner-Anhängers. Der vorliegende Band vereint die Referate, die im Rahmen des anlässlich des 150. Geburtstages von Hans Rott veranstalteten Symposions in Wien gehalten wurden. Unter den Beiträgen finden sich sowohl Arbeiten zur Biographie und zum gesellschaftlichen Umfeld des Komponisten als auch Studien zu seinem Werk, zu den auf ihn wirkenden musikalischen Einflüssen und zur Rezeption seiner Werke. Hatte sich die wissenschaftliche Forschung in den ersten Jahren nach der Entdeckung der Musik Rotts zunächst auf den sicherlich unüberhörbaren Einfluss konzentriert, den seine E-Dur-Symphonie auf das symphonische Schaffen Mahlers ausgeübt hat, so ist die hier vorgelegte Aufsatzsammlung Beleg dafür, dass mehr und mehr Hans Rott selbst, seine Person und sein Werk, in den Mittelpunkt des wissenschaftlichen Interesses gerückt sind.

Playing With Something That Runs from the Author: Mark J. Butler. Popular styles of electronic dance music are pervasively mediated by technology, not only within production but also in performance. The most familiar performance format in this style, the DJ set, is created with turntables, headphones, twelve-inch vinyl records, and a mixing board. Going beyond simply playing other people's records, DJs select, combine, and manipulate different parts of records to form new compositions that differ substantially from their source materials. In recent years, the "laptop set" has become equally common; in this type of performance, musicians use computers and specialized software to transform and reconfigure their own precomposed sounds. Both types of performance are largely improvised, evolving in response to the demands of a particular situation through interaction with a dancing audience. Within performance, musicians make numerous spontaneous decisions about variables such as which sounds they will play, when they will play them, and how they will be combined with other sounds. Yet the elements that constitute these improvisations are also fixed in certain fundamental ways: performances are fashioned from patterns or tracks recorded beforehand, and in the case of DJ sets, these elements are also physical objects (vinyl records). In Playing with Something that Runs, author Mark J. Butler explores these improvised performances, revealing the ways in which musicians utilize seemingly invariable prerecorded elements to create dynamic, real-time improvisations. Based on extensive interviews with musicians in their studios, as well as in-depth studies of particular mediums of performance, including both DJ and laptop sets, Butler explores the ways in which technologies, both material and musical, are used in performance and improvisation in order to make these transformations possible. An illuminating look at the world of popular electronic-music performance, Playing with Something that Runs is an indispensable resource for electronic dance musicians and fans as well as scholars and students of popular music.Readership: Scholars and students of popular music interested in contemporary electronic music, fans of electronic dance music (EDM), and EDM DJs and musicians.

Composing Under The Skin from the Author: Paul Craenen. A revealing study of the physical presence of the musician in musical performance Fingers slipping over guitar strings, the tap of a bow against the body of a cello, a pianist humming along to the music: contemporary composers often work with parasitic, non-conventional sounds such as these. Are they to be perceived as musical elements or do they shift attention to the physical effort of music-making, contact between a body and an instrument? Composer Paul Craenen explores ways in which the musician’s body is revealed in musical performance. He leads us from Cage, Lachenmann, Kagel and their contemporaries to a discussion of how today's generation of young composers is writing a body paradigm into composition itself. Micro-temporal physical gestures and instrumental timbre provide the key to unveiling the physical presence of both a musician and a ‘composing body’. The author's concept of ‘intercorporeality’, along with the idea of an alternating linear and non-linear relationship of the composing body to time, casts new light on the relationship between musicians, composers, and music consumers.
