17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: Research Seminar Series - Clint Bracknell/Makoto Takao Website | More Information
Clint Bracknell - Songs from the South: The Wirlomin Project and Southern Noongar Song

Aboriginal people, language and song inform a rich sense of place in Australia. Wirlomin Noongar people from the southwest are in the process of claiming, consolidating, enhancing and sharing their endangered cultural heritage. In this context, I will examine the value of community-driven Aboriginal language revitalisation and the potential function of local Aboriginal song idioms in broader cultural sustainability activities.

Makoto Takao - Glocal Emotion: Performative Practices of Jesuit Conversion in Early Modern Japan

This thesis will explore Jesuit conversion policy in Japan during the Christian Century (1540-1650). It will specifically analyse the means by which performative practices were employed as a way of fostering faith through the use of music, drama, and visual arts. These modes of communication embody inherent emotive potency, and the measure of their success can be best identified as degrees of affectivity amongst the converted.

Eva-Marie Middleton: Choral Performances of the Past

The archive of recorded music available for academic study now extends back for over a century. One of the avenues of study provided by this resource is a stark portrayal of differences in performance style over that period. This seminar will look specifically at changes in the performance practice of early choral music. Six recordings of Tudor music made in the 1920s will be analysed for their stylistic features and contrasted with the performance approaches of today's choirs.

17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: Research Seminar Series - Victoria Rogers Website | More Information
Victoria Rogers: John Blacking, Composer

John Blacking (1928–90) made his mark as an ethnomusicologist and social anthropologist and his enduring reputation stems from his work in these areas. Yet his interests were more far reaching and included cognition and language, dance and movement, the biology of music making, music psychology, and – perhaps surprisingly – composition. The very existence of Blacking’s compositions raises a number of enticing questions. What was the nature of his musical language? What might a study of his compositions tell us about his ethnomusicology? What might his ethnomusicology tell us about his compositions? These questions give rise to the central focus of this article: the intersection of Blacking’s composition and ethnomusicology. The article concludes that Blacking’s conceptualisation of music as an expression of social processes and cultural values extended beyond non-Western musics, infusing the compositions which he himself created within the musical paradigm of his own culture.
