Dissonance: Auditory Aesthetics in Ancient Greece (Idiom: by Sean Gurd

By Sean Gurd

within the 4 centuries top as much as the dying of Euripides, Greek singers, poets, and theorists delved deeply into auditory adventure. They charted its ability to boost topologies specific from these of the opposite senses; pondered its use as a communicator of knowledge; calculated its strength to specific and reason severe emotion. They made sound too, artfully and self-consciously developing songs and poems that reveled in sonorousness. Dissonance finds the commonalities among historic Greek auditory artwork and the worries of latest sound reviews, avant-garde song, and aesthetics, making the argument that “classical” Greek tune and drama have been, in truth, an early ecu avant-garde, a proto-exploration of the aesthetics of noise. The ebook hence develops a substitute for that romantic perfect which sees antiquity as a frozen and silent world.
