Dr. Garrett Field Publishes in Analytical Approaches to World Music

Jan 7, 2019

 

Dr. Garrett Field, Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology/Musicology, recently published an article in the peer-reviewed journal Analytical Approaches to World Music. Dr. Field's article is entitled, "Improvising Rhythmic-Melodic Designs in South Indian Karnatak Music: U Shrinivas Live in 1995." The purpose of the article is to conduct a detailed analysis of a rhythmic-melodic form of improvisation in South Indian Karnatak music known as svara kalpana. The article explains what svara kalpana is, describes three rhythmic-melodic designs commonly found in svara kalpana, and investigates how U. Shrinivas (1969-2014) used these designs during a concert in 1995.
