Callaway Lecture 2016

The Callaway Lecture is one of the most prestigious events on the School of Music calendar. Over the last two decades, a host of distinguished speakers have taken to the podium to deliver their thoughts on subjects as broad ranging as the effects of music on the mind, and the place of music in the arts.

This year’s lecture will be given by Martyn Evans, Principal of Trevelyan College, and Professor of Humanities in Medicine in the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at Durham University (UK).

Music, embodiment and the imagination – for good or ill

Music is one of life’s joys: life-enhancing, life-affirming, and widely thought to have therapeutic possibilities. The predominant attempts to understand music-as-therapy – mostly within neuroscience, but among many practitioners as well – focus on ‘how it works’ rather than on why it could. The trouble is that this leads us to reductionist accounts that seem to leave out what makes musical experience musical.

We need an understanding of musical experience that takes seriously the imagination and the will, as well as the body. One way to approach this is to explore another side of musical experience – its sometimes intrusive, disruptive appearances, and the connection that these reveal between imagined sound, the sensations of bodily movement, restlessness and anxiety.

This can lead us on to an alternative, more ‘existential,’ view of music-as-therapy whereby musical experience, operating through the imagination, recalls our sense of our ‘pre-morbid states’ – in other words, how we felt before we were ill – offering us both consolation and reassurance. In the process, we may find we do more justice not only to music-as-therapy but to musical experience in general.

Rosalind Appleby

The Rise of Australian Women Composers
In the early twentieth century, being a female composer was a dangerous game; one composer was diagnosed as mentally insane by her psychiatrist husband, several achieved success only after their divorces, and often the only way to get their music published was to lie about their gender. Still, the allure of writing music enticed women from all walks of life, and from the convent and the nappy-change table women began to compose.  

This presentation takes a fresh look at Australia's history and makes some startling discoveries about the contribution of women to Australian classical music. Drawing on research from her book Women of Note Rosalind puts together the missing pieces of history, sharing music and stories from women composers spanning the twentieth century to present day.

4.00pm: Clint Bracknell Sydney Conservatorium of Music - Wam Keniny (Doing a different kind of cultural dance): Studying Nyungar Song

As a Nyungar researcher, I completed doctoral investigation of the aesthetics and sustainability of Nyungar song from Western Australia’s southwest, proving the diminished but continued transmission of Nyungar song and providing the most detailed descriptions of Nyungar musical traditions to date. I found space to conduct this study via engagement with Western academia, demanding interrogation of its place within ethnomusicology.

5.00pm: Eva-Marie Perissinotto - Sounds of Another Age: Evaluating an Early Twentieth Century Recording of Tudor Choral Music

Performances of early choral music from before 1960 are often dismissed as being of poor aesthetic quality, but does the recorded evidence really warrant that label? In this presentation we will listen to a recording from the 1920s as well as one made today, and investigate exactly where they differ as well as what qualities they share.

Keyed Up! Music for 18 Musicians

Steve Reich is hailed by The New York Times as “our greatest living composer” for his contributions to postmodern music. His seminal work Music for 18 Musicians is one of a handful of twentieth century chamber music works that can rightly claim to have altered the course of Western art music, taking listeners and performers on a sonic journey that changes one’s perception of time, rhythm and melody.

This performance featuring staff and students of the School of Music celebrates the fortieth anniversary of this minimalist masterpiece.

Martyn Evans (Trevelyan College, University of Durham) - Death, music and the ineffable

The plausible view that music conveys the ineffable was as widely-held in the nineteenth-century as it was before or since. This paper offers the suggestion that through some nineteenth-century metaphysical conjectures, death – improbably – offers a clue to understanding music’s ineffability.

Music’s intrinsic ineffability, part of the larger problem of music and meaning, is adroitly caught in Mendelssohn’s dictum that music is ‘too definite to be put into words’. But music is also a response to a wider, extrinsic, ineffability. If the ineffable emerges within experience – things that we just know, yet know (or can say) little or nothing about – it also frames our finitude. In particular, death is an event outside our experience (outside life, as Wittgenstein has it). Our experience arises without antecedents and disappears without remainder. One response to this finitude is a sense of wonder; another is, on occasion, the production of music.

We can explore this link fruitfully through Schopenhauer’s ambitious metaphysics. Proceeding from Kant, Schopenhauer reasoned his way to the inaccessible (and ineffable) ‘noumenon,’ the timeless reality that must underlie the ordinary ‘phenomenal’ world of everyday experience. If in birth we somehow fall out of the noumenal into the phenomenal, then in death we are dissolved back into it. Beyond this we can say almost nothing – yet in music, Schopenhauer believed (along with a substantial cohort within nineteenth-century metaphysics of music), we directly and uniquely glimpse the noumenal: music’s uniqueness among the arts lies chiefly here.

But from this it seems that in music we glimpse also our own post-dissolution destiny: music comprises existential songs of finite experience and transcendental songs of dissolution into the ineffable.

I shall try to elucidate and defend this provocative claim.

Dobromila Jaskot - Voice and Instrument: Organic Merging

The closest relation between the performer and the instrument in Dobromila Jaskot’s works is the subject of the presentation. It concerns a search for merged ways of expressivity by a human as an instrumental performer. How to devise a hierarchy within a single complex instrumental part? What does ‘organic’ mean? What does ‘human expressivity’ mean? Where is the limit of articulation possibilities?

Dominik Karski - Flute Physicality

Dominik Karski’s presentation focuses on his flute works, as collaborations with flautists specialising in new music have formed a significant thread in his creative work. The main aim of the talk is to illustrate how composer-performer collaboration and in-depth research into performance techniques can inform a compositional approach where the physicality of sound production is the primary source of the musical substance.

Schubertiade

In a typical Schubertiade, a few major works by Franz Schubert are performed in a concert setting.  Not so the 28th of July.
 
Leading a cast of senior voice and piano students, and with associate artist Caroline Badnall and the School of Music’s newest academic Dr Cecilia Sun, Andrew Foote will perform and discuss some of Schubert’s best known songs – but often with a twist – as well as introduce a number of Schubert’s lesser known mini-masterpieces for voice.  Whether you’re Laughing and Weeping, Marching Militarily, pining with Gretchen at her Spinning Wheel, fearing the Erlking, or just want some Serenades and Swan Songs, this second Salon Series concert in the warmth and intimacy of the Eileen Joyce Study – complete with Mulled Wine at interval – is just the thing for a winter’s night

James Ledger - Shakespeare and the electric guitar

I was commissioned to write a work for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. The resultant work "Hollow Kings", is a four-movement work that explores and responds to speeches given by four of Shakespeare's kings. The orchestration includes electric guitar. I thought of this instrument as a modern-day lute, an instrument that was symbolically significant in the Elizabethan era.  In the work, I have drawn parallels with the modern-day instrument and it's ancestor through references in Shakespeare's plays.

Louise Devenish:Greater Than The Sum of Its Parts: Balinese Gamelan Instruments, Electronics and Composer-Performer Collaboration  

Composer-performer collaboration has played a vital role in the development of solo percussion works since the 1950s. Kinabuhi | Kamatayon (2015) brings traditional Balinese instruments together with contemporary percussion techniques and electronics. Key areas of interest included exploration of the pitch relationships between different instruments, development of new acoustic sounds through extended techniques and further expansion of the sonic palette by incorporating electronics.

Philip Murray

Free Research Seminar

Philip Murray - French Symbolist affinities in a late work of Toru Takemitsu: an examination of And then I knew ‘twas Wind for flute, viola and harp.

Toru Takemitsu acknowledged Debussy as a major influence, yet evidence of this influence in Takemitsu’s music is not as obvious as is often assumed. Philip Murray’s DMA research examines various aspects of Takemitsu’s late style, taking as its starting point a comparison between And then I knew ‘twas Wind and Debussy’s Sonata for flute, viola and harp. It will be suggested that an understanding of the impact of French Symbolist theories of poetic language on Debussy’s musical style can offer new insights into Takemitsu’s aesthetics.
