9781409426448: Eye hEar The Visual in Music

'Eye hEar The Visual in Music' employs the concept of the visual in proximate relation to music, producing a tension: 'is it not the case that there is a gulf between painting and music, between the visible and the audible? One is full of colour and light yet silent; one is invisible and marvellously noisy.' Such a belief, this book argues, betrays an ideological constraint on music, desiccating it to sound, and art to vision. The starting point of this study is more hybrid (and hydrating): that music is never employed without numerous and complex intersections with the visual. By involving the concept of synaesthesia, the book evokes music’s multi-sensory nature, stops it from sounding alone, and offers music as a subject for art historians. Music bleeds into art and visuality, in its graphic depiction in notation, in the theatre of performance, its sights and sites. This book looks at music in its absolute guise as a model for art; at notation and the conductor as the silent visual fulcra around which music circulates; at the music and image of Erik Satie; at the concert hall as white cube; at the symphonic film '2001: A Space Odyssey'; and at the liminality of John Cage and Andy Warhol.

Review:

A Yankee Book Peddler US Core Title for 2014 and UK Core Title for 2013 Classified as 'Research Essential' by Baker & Taylor YBP Library Services 'By claiming boldly that music is a subject for art historians, Simon Shaw-Miller has laid down the gauntlet for musicologists in this remarkable book. Rich with references to historical and philosophical discussions on the links between music and visual art, Shaw-Miller has produced a work that is also replete with profound aphorisms and sharp insights into specific case studies. Seminal in its contribution to our understanding of the interlocking relationship between the visual and the musical, this book is no less than a manifesto for future scholarship.' Alan Davison, University of New England, Australia 'What is distinctive and highly appealing in Shaw-Miller's approach is the lens of synaesthesia through which the reader is invited to perceive the mingled nature of music as it calls to art, literature, and film. ... The tempo is swift in [his] jargon-free narrative. There is often a richness of ideas within the lightness and brevity of each chapter. ... While it is not uncommon to see authors start out their prefaces and Introductions with ambitious goals, Shaw-Miller is remarkably modest in articulating his: "I want to claim music as a subject for art historians" (p. xii). This he certainly does, not just with regard to the study of music in an academic context, but also in the different ways he invites the reader to experience sound: philosophical, spatial, social, spiritual, cosmic. [His} informative descriptions of image and sound are equally nourishing for scholars and students of music ... an aversion to creating simple parallels between music and art helps Shaw-Miller achieve what few scholars of such projects are able to pull off: a graceful motion through which readers might envisage sight/site in sound and hear music in the visual.' Music and Letters
