Music Of Yes

by Bill Martin, Music Of Yes Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Music Of Yes books, Unlike most books on rock music, Music of Yes does not focus on personalities, but instead on musical structures, lyrical vision, and cultural and historical context. Bill Martin situates one of the most creative groups from the progressive rock period, Yes, within the utopian ideals of the sixties and the experimental trend in rock music initiated by the Beatles and taken up by groups such as King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, and others. Working against the seemingly entrenched cynicism and "blues orthodoxy" among rock music critics, Martin demonstrates the power of Yes's romantic, utopian, "Blakean," ecological, multicultural, and feminist perspective, showing how this vision is developed through extended musical works. "I think this book will stand out as the most definitive study of Yes, and anyway, how could I not like a book that compares my ability to that of John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix?" —Chris Squire Co-founder of Yes "Yes fans will flock to this paean to the world of 1960s 'art rock'. . . Martin's points about the artistic aspirations of '60s and '70s 'progressive' music are thought-provoking." —Booklist

Understanding Rock

by John Covach, Understanding Rock Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Understanding Rock books, Amid the recent increase in scholarly attention to rock music, Understanding Rock stands out as one of the first books that subjects diverse aspects of the music itself to close and sophisticated analytical scrutiny. Written by some of the best young scholars in musicology and music theory, the essays in this volume use harmonic, melodic, rhythmic, formal, and textual approaches in order to show how and why rock music works as music. Topics of discussion include the adaptation of blues and other styles to rock; the craft of songwriting; techniques and strategies of improvisation; the reinterpretation of older songs; and the use of the recording studio as a compositional tool. A broad range of styles and groups is covered, including Yes, the Beach Boys, Cream, k.d. lang, Paul Simon, Jimi Hendrix, and the Grateful Dead.

Music And Protest In 1968

by Beate Kutschke, Music And Protest In 1968 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Music And Protest In 1968 books, Music was integral to the profound cultural, social and political changes that swept the globe in 1968. This collection of essays offers new perspectives on the role that music played in the events of that year, which included protests against the ongoing Vietnam War, the May riots in France and the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. From underground folk music in Japan to antiauthoritarian music in Scandinavia and Germany, Music and Protest in 1968 explores music's key role as a means of socio-political dissent not just in the US and the UK but in Asia, North and South America, Europe and Africa. Contributors extend the understanding of musical protest far beyond a narrow view of the 'protest song' to explore how politics and social protest played out in many genres, including experimental and avant-garde music, free jazz, rock, popular song, and film and theatre music.
