Hearing a new music education story: From Sousa to Gould to Madlib, with Joyce and Powers in the mix

Screen Shot 2014-01-25 at 11.03.50 AMIn 2013 I received the Outstanding Emerging Researcher Award from the Center for Music Education Research at the University of South Florida. My paper has been posted at Music Education Research International (open access):

Thibeault, M. D. (2013). The shifting locus of musical experience from performance to recording to data: Some implications for music education. Music Education Research International, 6, 38–55.

The article explores the shifting locus of musical experience, the increasing importance of recordings and new media across one hundred years through the work of three emblematic musicians (John Philip Sousa, Glenn Gould, and producer Otis Jackson Jr. aka Madlib) as well as the subjective nature of musical experience through two short stories (James Joyce’s “The Dead,” and Richard Powers’ “Modulation”). Throughout, I use approaches resonant with the field of sound studies, an approach that has become central for my present work.

Volume 6 also has three additional fascinating articles by Jere Humphries, Jere and Alexandra Humprhies, and Gareth Dylan Smith.

Many thanks to Victor Fung for his editorial help and Clint Randles for organizing the SMERS conference.

Those who are interested in this topic might like my piece on hip-hop and music education or my short video on media and music education.

The abstract is also available in Chinese:
