MUS 014 POPULAR MUSIC OF THE WORLD 9/27/2016 MUSIC & POLITICS What is meant by “political?” ● Originally meant “public” behavior; implicit between public & private life/existence E.g. Running for public office, governing, proposing legislation, making laws, campaigning, voting, influencing the behavior of state officials What is meant by “political” today? ● Establishing and exercising power; No clear distinction between private and public; The personal is political (e.g. feminism, transgender/gay rights); Authoritative allocation of values who’s in power will have an impact on what kind of values we’ll live by through that power How can music be political? ● It always occurs in real time > rooted in particular context; (e.g. Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock 1969; can mean something for someone and completely different for someone else) ● Music creates space: a sound space > can create a social space ● Can meet individual or group needs ● Its use is not fixed but can negotiated ● Provides effectively empowering experiences T.A.Z. Temporary Autonomous Zone Hakim Bey A moment in time and space existing outside of structured and formal authority; Psychological & social freedom > centrality of music perhaps because of its ephemerality (e.g. raves that aren’t sponsored without security or authority figures) Why music? ● Music is circumambient, creating a very real sense of space. ● It is dynamic and symptomatic of energy ● It has a powerful presence and alter subjective time ● The music of a people is a social relationship embodied in real people & real contexts Always about some type of communication ● Music is always experiential & ephemeral You can’t freeze music like taking a picture Latin America & Jamaica Nueva Canción (iLearn reading) New song; Pan Latin movement; Guitar based 195060s (e.g. Inti Illimani “El Lazo”)
