Music after Deleuze

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Despite the multitude of musical references in the writings of Gilles Deleuze, the explicit treatment of music in his work is arguably less important than how his concept-based philosophy can help us to rethink music. Deleuzian concepts offer interesting ways of thinking about repetition and variation in a range of musics including Western art music from the medieval period to the avant-garde, jazz improvisation, popular, folk and liturgical music. The concept of the ‘assemblage’ provides a productive way of thinking the specificity of any new musical work as the meeting of lines of flight and as part of a dynamic account of musical change. Chapters on musical space and musical time consider a range of music in terms of the parameters of pitch/timbre and tempo/rhythm/duration. Deleuzian philosophy, which rethinks the nature of signs, offers valuable insights for a new musical semiotics.
