Inhaltsangabe: If I Am A Musical Thinker is a statement of the aesthetic, social, and spiritual credo of the influential American composer and writer Benjamin Boretz. Boretz proposes that artistic expression answers primal human needs for experiencing identity through articulation in artistic media; and further, that theoretical reflection is constructively or deconstructively crucial to expression and is itself expressive in nature. In keeping with this view, the author has created a discursive form peculiar to this statement, composing textual, graphic, and typographical material into a manifesto embodying his evolving position. Boretz founded and, until recently, edited perhaps the foremost journal of contemporary music theory and analysis, Perspectives of New Music.
Über den Autor: Benjamin Boretz is a twentieth- and twenty-first-century American composer and music theorist. He was one of the early composers to work with computer-synthesized sound (Group Variations II, 1970-72). In the late 1970s and 1980s he converged his compositional and pedagogical practices in a project of realtime improvisational musicmaking, culminating in the formation (at Bard College) of the music-learning program called Music Program Zero, which flourished until 1995. He has written extensively on musical issues, as critic, theorist, and musical philosopher, from the perspective of a practicing composer. His earliest (1970) large-scale music-intellectual essay was the book-length Meta-Variations, Studies in the Foundations of Musical Thought which addresses the epistemological questions involved in the cognition and composition of music, and propounds a radically relativistic/individualistic/ontological reconstruction of the music-creative process. Later (1978), his text composition Language, as a Music, Six marginal Pretexts for Composition engaged questions of the origin and nature of language and meaning as they might be conceived from the perspective of music. Boretz is a co-founder, with Arthur Berger, of the composers music journal Perspectives of New Music and, in 1999, founded The Open Space Magazine, which he edits with Mary Lee Roberts, Tildy Bayar, and Dorota Czerner.
