Fermata – time out to talk music

Fermata was founded in 2011 by Senior Lecturers Allan Badley and Davinia Caddy. As a series of public presentations open to all, Fermata exists to promote and extend discussion about music, its role and significance across history, its contemporary cultural currency, and its academic status within the University, the arts and humanities. Presentations take a number of forms – for example, interviews with special guests, round-table discussions, lecture-style talks and question-and-answer sessions – and seek to intertwine the various aspects of musical experience, from listening, performing and composing to thinking critically about questions of musical meaning.

Fermata: Mark Baynes

Student Scholarship: Doctoral research

Analytic, Descriptive and Prescriptive Components of Evolving Jazz: a new model based on the works of Brad Mehldau.

This talk will detail the formal analysis of improvisation contained within the music of jazz pianist Brad Mehldau by focusing on some of his transcriptions; in addition, this lecture will also define and exemplify a new approach to jazz analysis derived from a study of holistic consonance and dissonance, and cognitive research into perceived motivation in music by cognitivists such as Huron and Meyer.
