The Voice of Singularity and a Philosophy to Come

Christopher Long
This article traces what Schürmann calls the “double comprehension of being” in Kant in which the sense of being as pure givenness is said to be recognized but denied by Kant as his thinking undertakes its Copernican turn. Schürmann insists that this can be heard in the ambiguous ways the German terms “Position” and “Setzung” are used in Kant. Schürmann shows that these two terms point at various moments in Kant either to the notion...

A comparison of the polychrome geometric patterns painted on Egyptian “palace façades” / false doors with potential counterparts in Mesopotamia

Lloyd Graham
In 1st Dynasty Egypt (ca. 3000 BCE), mudbrick architecture may have been influenced by existing Mesopotamian practices such as the complex niching of monumental façades. From the 1st to 3rd Dynasties, the niches of some mudbrick mastabas at Saqqara were painted with brightly-coloured geometric designs in a clear imitation of woven reed matting. The possibility that this too might have drawn inspiration from Mesopotamian precedents is raised by the observation of similar geometric frescoes at...

ROCK HARMONY RECONSIDERED: TONAL, MODAL AND CONTRAPUNTAL VOICE-LEADING SYSTEMS IN RADIOHEAD

Brad Osborn
A great deal of the harmony and voice leading in the British rock group Radiohead’s recorded output between 1997 and 2011 can be heard as elaborating either traditional tonal structures or establishing pitch centricity through purely contrapuntal means. This mode of hearing Radiohead’s music departs from theories of rock harmony that (1) focus on fretboard-specific melodic gestures, (2) highlight the role of modal scalar collections or (3) associate pitch centricity with hypermetric emphasis. Willingness to...

Subverting the Verse–Chorus Paradigm: Terminally Climactic Forms in Recent Rock Music

Brad Osborn
This article defines and demonstrates a formal type I call ‘‘terminally climactic forms.’’ These forms, which appear frequently in rock songs after 1990, are characterized by their balance between the expected memorable highpoint (the chorus) and the thematically independent terminal climax, the song’s actual high point, which appears only once at the end of the song. After presenting the rationale for such forms, including new models of rock endings and climaxes, the article presents archetypes...

Kid Algebra: Radiohead's Euclidean and Maximally Even Rhythms

Brad Osborn
Radiohead’s music regularly confronts the listener with structural elements—in the domains of pitch/harmony, timbre, form, and rhythm—which exist in a space between pure Top Forty convention and sheer experimentation.

Understanding Through-Composition in Post-Rock, Math-Metal, and other Post-Millennial Rock Genres

Brad Osborn
Since the dawn of experimental rock’s second coming in the new millennium, experimental artists have begun distancing themselves from Top-40 artists through formal structures that eschew recapitulatory verse/chorus conventions altogether. In order to understand the correlation between genre and form more thoroughly, this paper provides a taxonomic approach to through-composition in several post-millennial experimental rock genres including post-rock, math-metal, art rock, and neo-prog. Combining the presence or absence of two salient formal parameters (hierarchical grouping...

Becoming-Music, Becoming-Intimate, Becoming-Imperceptible

Brad Osborn
Musicologists have recently begun applying the diverse philosophies of Deleuze and Guattari to music. Most contributors strive for rigorous adherence to early Deleuzian principles-a position I refer to as "orthodox"-and are therefore hesitant to posit any sort of musical objecthood or listener subjectivity. By contrast, this article espouses an approach I deem "pragmatic," which takes as points of departure pragmatist theories found in the work of Richard Rorty, as well as Deleuze and Guattari's A...

"Solomon's Salacious Song": Foucault's Author Function and the Early Christian Interpretation of the Canticum Canticorum

Andrew Jacobs
The transformation of the erotic Song of Songs into a mystical tract on the soul's love for Christ was surely one of the great exegetical feats of late ancient Christianity. Recent work on the politics of meaning leads us to interrogate more closely the processes by which early Christian exegetes achieved that feat, and how their interpretations encoded and produced particular forms of socially mediated power and knowledge. Michel Foucault has proposed for modern literary...
