Abstract:

"In Composition and Cognition, famed composer and theorist Fred Lerdahl builds off the theoretical project that has occupied him for years: a comprehensive model of the cognition of tonal music. Bringing together his dual career in composition and music theory, he reveals how his work in music theory has served as a foundation for his compositional style and how his intuitions as a composer have guided his cognitively-oriented music theories. These theories, combined with related theoretical and empirical research, offer an overall picture of the musical mind that has implications for central issues in contemporary composition, including the recurrent gap between compositional method and perceived result, and the tension between cognitive constraints and utopian aesthetic views of musical progress. At times personal and reflective, Lerdahl's lyrical yet succinct volume will provide invaluable insights for students and instructors, composers, and musicians"--Provided by publisher.
