Instrument Creation (STOMP)
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.”
Financial success is esteemed
Artistic excellence measured
Producers’ goal-make music with wide appeal
Artists’ goal-make music that evidences talent, pursues excellence
Refining performance skills
Composing new music
Interpreting challenging compositions
All efforts may yield little financial reward
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.
