Songs Without Words: Our World Reflected In Evolving Musical Styles
December 11, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In most cultures music is widely acknowledged as a means of communication which transcends all other media. Through music we gain insight into the thoughts and feelings of others; we articulate the past and present; we touch the spiritual and the temporal.
Musical style can be powerfully evocative of any point in time and the evolution of musical language helps us to experience the zeitgeist of any historical period. This talk by Dr Melanie Brown seeks to explore how changes in morality, aesthetics and technology have influenced musical style through the ages.
Practical illustrations will be performed by the speaker.
No booking required.
