Tempo - our perception of the passing of time - is crucial to musical interpretation. Musical descriptive terms, such as allegro, can be directives of speed as well as implications of musical character. The surface of a musical work can seem fast, but the underlying structure can evolve slowly. How would we perceive such a work? How do composers create the sonic landscape they envision within a purely musical context?
Dr Robert Taub will explore in this talk the temporal ways in which we perceive music.
