The Relationship between the Composer, Performer and Listener in Twentieth Century Music Making
MetadataShow full item record
It is only through the aural perception of the sound, whether it is in the composing, performing or listening stages, that the essential connection is made with a "sounding" music. Once that fundamental connection is made, it then becomes possible to achieve a common sense of purpose toward the development of a direct relationship between the composer, performer and listener, in a shared community ritual of celebration. Through this type of action, the unfolding of the sounds themselves can support all of the musicians involved in the listening process in becoming part of the performance, through composing, performing, or re-composing the music in their own minds, in one sense or another.
