  • Issue 42 - 'Recomposing' unpublished chinese folk songs into New
           Australian compositions for pipa and piano
    • Abstract: Grenfell, Maria; Deng, Shan
      In 2010, pianist Shan Deng, her father Wei Deng, a pipa specialist, and composer Maria Grenfell embarked upon a musical project to amalgamate their practice-led research. Collaborating as composer and performers in the composition of Five Songs from the East a new work for pipa and piano using material sourced from some unpublished Chinese folk songs, the central aims of the project were to 'recompose' selected songs, write a composition that fused the composer's current style with musical elements present in these folk songs, and combine a Western musical instrument with a Chinese instrument in a new work. The compositions were not conceived as appropriation of Chinese material; rather, the composer wished to create new Australian music directly informed by collaboration with Chinese musicians trained in both Western and Chinese performing traditions.

  • Issue 42 - A counterpoint of critical voices: travelling musicians in
           colonial New Zealand
    • Abstract: Murphy, Kerry
      Helen Carr, writing on 'Modernism and Travel,' observes that in the period 1880-1940 a 'remarkable number of novelists and poets were travelling writers, whether or not they were in addition actually travel writers.' The same period saw a large number of travelling musicians trawling the furthermost points of the globe who, as they went, enthusiastically wrote about their experiences. The music journals and daily press of the nineteenth century regularly published letters by travelling artists and critics on tour. While many critics, including well-known writers such as Th ophile Gautier, were commissioned before embarking and given a brief by a newspaper to write up their travels, others approached the task in a more haphazard fashion. Some travelling musicians published the accounts of their travels years after their voyage, so the books perhaps lack the spontaneity and immediacy of contemporaneous articles sent to the press. Yet they were clearly based on diaries kept at the time. Lydia Wevers eloquently describes how writing became almost 'an inevitable adjunct of travel a cultural duty and a framing intellectual habit as if mobility required a corresponding attempt at stability, at preservation in the form of a textual record.' 2 Often, the writings of travelling musicians provide valuable primary source material that gives a different and at times unexpected perspective on cultural life in colonial and remote environments a long way from Europe.

  • Issue 42 - Back to the future: the proud legacy of Melbourne's colonial
           women composers
    • Abstract: Selleck, Johanna
      Likening women's suffrage to the decapitation of octogenarians might nowadays seem extreme, but the above quote indicates that such was the mood of the times in fin de siecle Melbourne. In a society undergoing rapid change, the Woman Question centred on women's suffrage but penetrated every area of society. The role of the Woman Question in social, political, and literary debate is well-known, yet it also manifested strongly in the world of music. In fact, music played a crucial role in enabling the 'New Woman' to break the confines of the family home and the separate spheres. In this article, I offer some notable examples of such women musicians and address some of the reasons why their work as composers, improvisers, performers, and teachers remains unrecognised and underestimated. Arguments testifying to their profound and lasting legacy are put forward, and some suggestions made for how their work may be restored to its rightful place in history.

  • Issue 42 - How forests think
    • Abstract: Lim, Liza
      How Forests Think reflects on the work of anthropologist Eduardo Kohn, who writes about forest ecologies as the 'living thought' of human and non-human selves. Each of these selves may have its own subjectivity, creating the world with its own registers of knowledge, sensation and meaning. These selves organize into communities: in ancient forests, a stump may be kept alive for centuries by the surrounding trees through underground fungal networks that nourish the old connections and keep a song going. One might think of a forest as a choir, or certainly as an ensemble. Stories, dreams and thoughts inhabit multiple forms in a living matrix; they ask us to look beyond our limited human gaze and limited human time-span.

  • Issue 42 - Playing games with Postmodernism: Matthew Hindson's Nintendo
           Music (2005)
    • Abstract: Crowe, Jessica
      Ludomusicology broadly, the study of video game music is a relatively young sub-discipline of musicological inquiry spanning about a decade in earnest, which has seen particularly rapid expansion in scholarly interest over the last five years. It is yet to resolve fundamental questions of how to explore game music, how to draw from other disciplines, and how to successfully secure a place of its own within scholarly investigation. Indeed, the term 'video game' itself is up for definitional debate. For the purposes of this paper I use the term rather than, for example, 'computer game' or 'digital game,' borrowing Karen Collins's definition of 'any game consumed on video screens, whether these are computer monitors, mobile phones,handheld devices, televisions, or coin-operated arcade consoles.' Roger Moseley defines ludomusicology as the 'study of both the musically playful and the playfully musical.' Similarly, as the 'ludo' in ludomusicology etymologically stems from the Latin word for 'play,' the discipline is perhaps best defined as exploring 'the relationship between music and play.' This paper examines ways in which the study of video games, game sound, and art music can converge, with particular regard to Australian art-music composer Matthew Hindson (b. 1968) and his 2005 chamber music piece Nintendo Music; as William Cheng states, 'by considering how music is playful and how play is musical, we can learn much.' Conceptualising video games as music is a compelling idea. The former editor-in-chief of Kill Screen magazine, Chris Dahlen, summarises this point: 'Both forms marry performance and production, gut and theory, and repetition and spontaneity a classic will endure a million renditions, as the performers move from practice, to mastery, to reinvention.' Kirk Hamilton postulates that 'games are music, they have a real musical aspect to them. Leaving harmony aside, even the simplest video games have a rhythm and rhythm is a vital, often-misunderstood element of every video game.' Thus, while ludomusicology is primarily concerned with studying game music, it also considers games in a musical way, and music in a playful way: the common thread is the word 'play.' Playfulness is likewise at the heart of postmodernism, an aesthetic and critical approach to music written in response to the tenets of modernism. Postmodern music tends to play with the boundaries and possibilities of what can be musically achieved in a piece, and it is these playful impulses I investigate within Nintendo Music.

  • Issue 42 - Realism and the 'Inaudible' score for spotlight
    • Abstract: Callaghan, Andrew
      Reality poses a problem for film composers. For decades, filmmakers in Hollywood have leaned towards an avoidance of non-diegetic music in films that seek a realistic aesthetic. The post-millennial examples of this phenomenon are perhaps most recognisable in the found footage genre, which includes such films as Quarantine and Cloverfield. However, there have been a number of film productions in the last ten years that bear many hallmarks of illusory realism yet include the use of musical scores. It appears that this contradiction of realist aims with practices that include non-diegetic music results in film scores that feature distinctive designs and occasionally compromise the scope of their functions. One of the most recent of these films is Spotlight, a docudrama directed by Tom McCarthy and co-written with Josh Singer. This film's relationship with truth and realism can be described in terms of its subject, social position and craft. The score was written by Howard Shore. Having previously worked on productions by David Cronenberg and the The Lord of the Rings franchise, Shore is not widely known for creating scores that go unnoticed. Nevertheless, the score for Spotlight contains many features that make it a textbook case of unobtrusiveness, drawing on old traditions of Hollywood while adding a number of new features. These features can also be observed in other recently produced film scores, representing a style that is frequently employed by significant composers working on serious dramatic settings.

  • Issue 42 - Zelenka Reception since the Eighteenth Century: The Role of
           Emotions
    • Abstract: Kiernan, Frederic
      Ever since Camerata Bern first released their recording of Jan Dismas Zelenka's (1679-1745) trio and quadro sonatas in 1973 (Archiv 2708 027), something of a cult following has formed around the Bohemian composer and his music. An online forum (www.jdzelenka.net) keeps track of most new recordings and notable developments in research, and a regular Zelenka Festival (www.zelenkafestival.cz) now takes place in Prague, usually with a conference attached. Discussions about the composer in both scholarship and the media generally express a sense of admiration and curiosity about his quirky-yet-learned style, and the paucity of biographical sources has led to speculation about his personal life and character (for example, that clues about his alleged homosexuality are encoded into his compositions). Zelenka's name, however, is hardly ever mentioned in standard music history textbooks.
