A contribution to new knowledge about the experiences of artists and their practice.
About the AOSIS published book: Music, Art & Emotion
This book, published by AOSIS Scholarly Books, explores how four visual artists make sense of referentialism and emotion in music. Consequently, the author adds to the discourse on music and emotion and how music’s structural features and the prosodic elements of a classical singer’s voice can elicit meaning-making in listeners without their understanding of the texts.
This book would provide readers access to 20 new artworks, each created as a result of the artists’ interpretation of the meaning they ascribed to art songart songs. Scholars interested in the creation of visual art, the experiences of artists, art song and its interpretation, the ability of music to evoke emotion in listeners, interdisciplinary research, and ways of developing artistic research will benefit from reading this book. This book would provide readers access to 20 new artworks, each created as a result of the artists’ interpretation of the meaning they ascribed to art songs sung by Ian Bostridge, Kiri te Kanawa, Susan Graham, Reneé Fleming, and Jessye Norman.
