9780253222237: Deepening Musical Performance through Movement: The Theory and Practice of Embodied Interpretation (Musical Meaning and Interpretation)

Alexandra Pierce singles out elements of music such as melody, meter, and phrase, and investigates the defining quality of each through movement. Although simple, these exercises engage the listening attention in complex ways and can be integrated into a musician’s daily practice. Practicing movements that accurately reflect a musical element can improve technique and are audible in performance. They become part of your technical command. Short narratives that illustrate how performance practice problems can be approached and solved are scattered throughout the book. A video companion to Deepening Musical Performance through Movement can be found at the author’s website, alexandrapierce.net/deepening.

From the Publisher:

"This is a music theory book with a difference and one that fills a need. . . . The theory it advances is that expression of character and affect in music corresponds to the expression of character and affect in human posture and movement . . . . Musicians and music teachers will take from it both a sense of liberation and an incentive for more imaginative discipline ... its scholarship is deep and persuasive." --Professor David Lidov, York University, Ontario, Canada

About the Author:

Alexandra Pierce is Professor of Music and Movement, Emerita Research Professor at the University of Redlands, California. She is author (with Roger Pierce) of Expressive Movement: Posture and Action in Daily Life, Sports, and the Performing Arts.
