  • How is music conceptualized in north america

    How is music conceptualized in North America?

    Something done by professionals, artists

    Something encountered-concerts, public sphere

    Music learned from schoolmates, teachers, parents, and/or church members

    Comes to mind better than more formalized examples (printed music, MP3 files, concerts)

    “Music for music’s sake.”


    Commodification and specialization of music

    Commodification and Specialization of Music

    Financial success is esteemed

    Artistic excellence measured

    Producers’ goal-make music with wide appeal

    Artists’ goal-make music that evidences talent, pursues excellence


    Art and commerce

    Art and Commerce

    • Tense relationship

      • Courting mainstream audience

      • Compromising artistry and authenticity

    • Concert Halls

      • Sell tickets

      • Challenge audiences with new music


    North american values

    North American Values

    Refining performance skills

    Composing new music

    Entering contests

    Interpreting challenging compositions

    All efforts may yield little financial reward


    Music as a reflection of culture

    Music as a Reflection of Culture

    Music is measured by its ability to integrate society, ceremonies, and social events. Technical complexity is not a valid criterion. For the Blackfeet, “the right way to do something is to sing the right song with it.” Every activity has its appropriate song.
