I will now shiQ direc”on and provide a brief analysis of the piece by using the Peircian concepts of index, icon and symbol. Coherence Beyond Structure As stated above, Greimas’ discourse deals paisaue the deeper levels Hrst, which if translated to musical terms would relate to ma3ers of form and harmonic design.

The dichotomy then is presented between the very metric Hrst measures, in which there is no room for a rubato-type of interpreta”on, and the highly organized but aurally looser form of the sec”on men”oned above. Even further, can the analyst or musicologist communicate said meaning verbally?

In simple terms, seman”cs over syntax. However, this is a deliberate approach as he considers that music will reveal its “true” form by llugia a “soQer” cbano that deals with a hermeneu”cal-philosophical discourse Taras” Following, the atmosphere gets denser and denser, featuring diNerent textures by means of composi”onal techniques such as close imita”on see Hgure 2; rehearsal le3er Eor aggrega”ve pentatonicism see Hgure 3; rehearsal le3er F.

Toward an Interpreta”ve Theory of Culture. Then, depending on whether we locate it in a certain nota”onal representa”on, or in a speciHc realiza”on, or in an idealiza”on of that realiza”on, or in the interface of a speciHc realiza”on and the listener’s idealiza”on, or in the composer’s idealized realiza”on – we should go on to develop the appropriate deHni”onal apparatus.

For example, in Paisaje Cubano con Lluvia, one Hnds a great amount of iconic elements.

A Theory of Musical Semio! It is then possible to convey musical informa”on, or the inner logic of music, through verbal u3erances if its signiHcance is replicated lluvis a par”cular culture.


This idea is be3er explained by using the study of literature if one considers music as a narra”ve art that is as a parallel example: You can check the complete license agreement in brouwrr following link: Oxford University Press, accessed October 25, h3p: This also leads into a quasi-existen”al inquiry: Nonetheless, as Chagas enunciates: Finally, the opening bars from the ;aisaje sec”on are brought back as a coda, perhaps symbolizing the last moments of what appears to be the end of this Cuban storm.

There are addi”onal isotopies present in the work. Even further, once this aural depic”on is governed by conven”on, it becomes a symbol, which can either show iconic or indexical features. Second and consequently, it must explain the constraints aNec”ng organiza”on at the highest level– levels of sentence, paragraph, chapter, and beyond. Given the brief nature of this document, I will not go into extensive detail when discussing these modali”es.

Unsayable Music, Six Brouewr Even further, one can talk of mul”ple isotopies, if referring to bitonality or polyrhythmic passages. Surely, one could argue that there is a fair amount of syncopa”on, which oQen relates to the Afro- Cuban tradi”on, but there is not a clear Hgura”on that hints at the idea of “Cubanness.

Such is the province and brouwfr criterion of semio”cs. Hrst, it must explain the laws that govern the moment-by-moment succession of events in a piece, that is, the syntax of music. As Taras” states, “Modali”es denotes all the inten”ons by which the person who voices an u3erance may color his conn her speech i. Semio”cs, in this case, can be understood as a dynamic and interdisciplinary Held involving a wide array of disciplines like linguis”cs, anthropology, and literary studies that deals with bbrouwer increasingly complex apparatus of deHni”ons aimed at distribu”ng all of reality, the conceptual, and the experien”al into various categories of signs” Benveniste quoted in Agawu Therefore, I will Hrst give a brief but detailed account of Leo Brouwer’s composi”onal output and aesthe”cs, followed by a summarized lluia of the semio”c concepts that Taras” uses in the Hrst two chapters of his book.

For example, in roman”c music one can comprehensibly dis”nguish the func”on of each line: In addi”on, given the plurality of musical styles present nowadays, and our overall consciousness and knowledge of musical composi”onal processes, there is also a hrouwer for a system that reaches beyond the technological and historical areas.

As demonstrated above, modali”es can func”on within musicological discourse to describe the piece in its musical terms, and even tap into the discourse of embodiment—one that is conspicuously absent in theore”cal analysis. This is also supported by the fact there does not seem to be a speciHc func”on adhered to each part. Peirce Edi”on Project, As Chagas explains, “Music refers to itself, and to the speciHc cubaano – the speciHc “me and space in which it emerges.

Verbal ac”vity is thus, a limi”ng or perhaps foreign tool that does not provide a truthful portrayal of the complexity—some might argue for the simplicity as well—of music. However, one has to take into considera”on brouwwr Taras”‘s achievement does not strictly adhere to these theories: Brouwee enough, there has been a growing proclivity—although no”ceably faint—that directly addresses issues of this sort star”ng with the work of eighteenth century music theorists such as Johann Ma3heson, Francesco Galeazzi, and Johann Friedrich Daubepar”cularly with ma3ers related to the “persistent concern with a shadowy linguis”c analogy” Agawu Consequently, the main purpose of this document is to exemplify in a clear and concrete fashion the use of semio”c analysis as outlined by Hrouwer
