Poetry

http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/heaneys-eminem-praise-a-bum-rap-26233037.html

Is it true you once praised the work of rapper Eminem?

: I never listened to one of his performances, but I knew he was very famous and I knew the kind of propulsive, rhyme-driven, verbally athletic genre that rap was. At a conference for teachers, I was asked a question about the younger generation’s interest in poetry. My answer was that some popular genres had a metrical and rhyming energy and that this guy Eminem seemed to have sent a charge around the world. End of story, I thought. How wrong can you be? The Daily Telegraph reported something on the lines of “Nobel Laureate Commends Rapper Who Advocates Rape, Murder, etc.”

If you can’t read music, you need mega-ears.

Where does sight reading come onto this?  Vivier in London.

Many reasons for music notation other than pure communication – political, business etc.

Notation is related to control of your material– if you know you want something, how do you communicate that?

What does notation tell you?
