Histories of Musical and Poetic Meter
Conveners: Rick Cohn, Roger Grant, and Carmel Raz
The past several decades have witnessed an efflorescence of research on the temporal aspects of musical experience. Rhythm and meter, once regarded as merely secondary parameters in comparison to pitch and harmony, are now central to the analysis and theory of music. Bringing empirical approaches together with historicist and analytical work, the second meeting of the "Histories of Modern Rhythmic Theory" working group will cultivate new critical and comparative perspectives on historical rhythmic and metric theory.
