The Kora And Korafolaw: A Treatise On The Musical Instrument And Those Who Play It, William Ridenour 2010 SIT Study Abroad

The Kora And Korafolaw: A Treatise On The Musical Instrument And Those Who Play It, William Ridenour

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

“The kora is what they play in heaven” a friend once told me. I agreed with him, easily. Ever since I first heard the kora played in the United States, my interest in it and the culture that produced it has deepened. Being able to carry out research on it has been a blessing and a pleasure.

All of my fieldwork was done in Bamako, the capital of Mali between April 15th and May 7th 2010. I spent most of my time in the company of the venerable jeli and korafola Dialy Mady Sissoko, who more or less adopted me ...

Conservative Radical: Martin Luther’S Influence On Congregational Singing, Jonathan Knight 2010 Cedarville University

Conservative Radical: Martin Luther’S Influence On Congregational Singing, Jonathan Knight

B.A. in Music Senior Capstone Projects

Martin Luther played an influential role in the transition from the priest-dominated Catholic worship to congregationally accessible evangelical services. This study demonstrates that, though his musical reforms were not dramatic, they were intentional and effective. Luther’s understanding of music theologically, theoretically, and practically enabled him to effectively utilize available musical resources to make music increasingly accessible, for the purpose of teaching the Word of God. Through Luther’s hymns, people began proclaiming the Word of God musically. Through liturgical reform, Luther provided congregations with a framework through which to incorporate congregational song in the liturgy. Through music education, Luther ...


Porgy And Bess: A Racial Paradox, Carolyn Deemer 2010 Cedarville University

Porgy And Bess: A Racial Paradox, Carolyn Deemer

B.A. in Music Senior Capstone Projects

This project examines the racial implications of George Gershwin‟s folk opera Porgy and Bess. This study specifically addresses the question: Did Porgy and Bess have a positive or negative impact on race relations between the African-American and white communities? To answer that question, this I have examined the perceptions that various groups expressed upon viewing the opera. In my research, I have studied the responses from black and white society in the United States, as well as the intentions of Gershwin himself. I discuss these responses in terms of the opera‟s immediate reception, through primary source documents, newspaper ...


Hip-Hop: A Call And Response To God’S Self-Communication, Mark Perez 2010 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Hip-Hop: A Call And Response To God’S Self-Communication, Mark Perez

Theology Undergraduate Theses

“How is it that something that has no definitive theological intent”, underground hip-hop “being our prime example, provides such a spiritual encounter, and how then can we dare say that one might experience a connection with the true God” in and through hip-hop? (Chung 4) In order to make such an argument possible several theological dilemmas must be addressed. But first, I must qualify that these arguments are a personal attempt at understanding how and why hip-hop is not only liberation but also a point of contact between God and creation. The significance of this exploration reveals the music’s ...

Johann Christian Bach's Influence On Mozart's Developing Style, Austin Bourdon 2010 University of Richmond

Johann Christian Bach's Influence On Mozart's Developing Style, Austin Bourdon

Honors Theses

The methods by which great composers create their masterpieces often remain a mystery to modern scholars. There are essentially two approaches to determining what these methods might be: investigating a composer’s surviving drafts, sketches, and letters and analyzing their musical influences. The first approach can be very limiting, especially when applied to a composer such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who did not leave behind many musical sketches. Therefore, when studying Mozart’s compositional process, it is more useful to rely on the second method in which one traces his stylistic development to key musical figures. From these major influences ...

The Testimonial Aesthetics Of Different Trains, Amy Lynn Wlodarski 2010 Dickinson College

The Testimonial Aesthetics Of Different Trains, Amy Lynn Wlodarski

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

Often praised as an exceptional artistic response to the Holocaust, Steve Reich's Different Trains adopts a documentary approach to Holocaust representation in which Reich assembled short excerpts from three survivor testimonies and published transcriptions of their accounts in his libretto for the work. This article explores the consequences that arise when fragments from very emotional testimonies are recast as purportedly unmediated documentary. The authority attributed to this sort of historical narrative has come under scrutiny in the field of Holocaust studies, in which it is called “secondary witness”—an intellectual interpretation of survivor testimonies advanced without the author revealing ...
