Hrst, it must explain the laws that govern the moment-by-moment succession of events in a piece, llucia is, the syntax of music. Peirce Edi”on Project, Consequently, the main purpose of this document is to exemplify in a clear and concrete fashion the use of semio”c analysis as outlined by Taras” Taras” follows the iden”Hca”on of isotopies with three categories that he classiHes as cons”tu”ve core elements of a sound semio”c analysis.

Taras” argues that there appears to be a communica”on gap in the Held of musicology, which relies on verbal ac”vity as its primal form for conveying informa”on to the “external” world, when a3emp”ng to bring knowledge of the inner logic of music. Accordingly, Paisaje Cubano con Lluvia being wri3en in falls into the la3er category.

Even further, one can talk of mul”ple isotopies, if referring to bitonality or polyrhythmic passages. When applying these categories to the analysis of the piece, one Hnds that both the spa”al and temporal categories serve as a straighYorward outline of the general bbrouwer of the piece.

I will now shiQ direc”on and brouwwer a brief analysis of the piece by using the Peircian concepts of index, icon and symbol. Elements such as the rhythmic Hgure of the cinquillo, or melodic Hgura”ons deriving from the paisae come to mind. If a par”cular musical moment or element has been turned into a sign that through conven”ons of musical tradi”on convey some meaning, in other words, a symbol, in the Peircian sense more of this later ; then communica”on is a3ainable.


Unsayable Music, Six Re5ec! Fortunately enough, there has been a growing proclivity—although no”ceably faint—that directly addresses issues of this sort star”ng with the work of eighteenth century music theorists such as Johann Ma3heson, Francesco Galeazzi, and Johann Friedrich Daubepar”cularly with ma3ers related to the “persistent concern with a shadowy linguis”c analogy” Agawu This is also supported by the fact there does not seem to be a speciHc func”on adhered to each part.

Finally, the opening bars from the A sec”on are brought back as a coda, perhaps symbolizing the last moments of what appears to be the end of this Cuban storm.

Remember me on this computer.

The Concept of a Universal Language. As Chagas explains, “Music bouwer to itself, and to the speciHc culture – the speciHc “me and space in which it emerges.

However, one cannot simply exclude the fact that the piece gradually evolves into a more dissonant and unstable en”ty. Thus, the jus”Hca”on of the bfouwer of becoming as excessive.

It exists when it is recognized as signiHer by all members of a linguis”c community, and when it calls forth for each individual roughly the same associa”ons and opposi”ons. As evidenced when comparing Hgure 5 Hudson This premise, of course, works under the assump”on that music and verbal language are mutually exclusive. Third, it must demonstrate, rather than merely assume, that music represents a bona Hde system of communica”on, and must then go on to show what is being communicated and how.

This is also an indexical characteris”c that will later be discussed, as it concerns Peircian theory. Surely, one could argue that there is a fair amount of syncopa”on, which oQen relates to the Afro- Cuban tradi”on, but there is not a clear Hgura”on that hints at the idea of “Cubanness. There is a greater deal of kine”c energy being generated as the piece reaches its climax. Ergo, minimalism appears here as a deep structure that holds the piece together. In this sense, Afro Cuban music is delivered in a more abstract manner, which propels it into a diNerent direc”on, being more accessible in a global and transcultural connota”on.


In simple terms, seman”cs over syntax. As in the case above, I am aware that the ideas being presen”ng can fall into the category of specula”ve, but I am willing to present them, as they seem logical given the context presented here. In a similar fashion, I am willing to posit that semio”cs can provide a complacent method that compensates for the communica”on gap generated by the use of verbal ac”vity as means of conveying musical informa”on and meaning.

Lastly, the symbol is explained by Taras”, as a sign that through conven”ons of musical tradi”on convey meaning Leonard Ratner labeled these as topoi or musical topicsor in be3er terms, subjects of musical discourse. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.
