How I came to Compose the Ode to Napoleon [Opus 41], 1942 The League of Composers had asked me (1942) to write a piece of chamber music for their concert season. It should employ only a limited number of instruments. I had at once the idea that this piece must not ignore the agitation aroused in mankind against the crimes that provoked this war. I remembered Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, supporting repeal of the jus prime noctis, Schiller's Wilhelm Tell, Goethe's Egmont, Beethoven's Eroica and Wellington's Victory, and I knew it was the moral duty of intelligentsia to take a stand against tyranny. But this was only my secondary motive. I had long speculated about the more profound meaning of the Nazi philosophy. There was one element that puzzled me extremely: the resemblence of the valueless individual being's life in respect to the totality of the community or its representative: the Queen or the Führer. I could not see why a whole generation of bees or of Germans should live only in order to produce another generation of the same sort, which on their part should also fulfill the same task: to keep the race alive. I even surmised that bees (or ants) instinctively believe their destiny was to be successors of mankind, when this had destroyed itself in the same manner in which our predecessors, the Giants, Magicians, Lindworms [Dragons], Dinosaurs and others had destroyed themselves and their world, so that first men knew only a few isolated specimens. Their and the ants' capacity of forming states and living according to laws -- senseless and primitive, as they might look to us -- this capacity, unique among animals, had an attractive similarity to our own life; and in our imagination we could muse a story, seeing them growing to dominating power, size and shape and creating a world of their own resembling very little the original beehive. Without such a goal the life of the bees, with the killing of the drones and the thousands of offspring of the Queen seemed futile. Similarly all the sacrifices of the German Herrenvolk [Master Race] would not make sense, without a goal of world domination -- in which the single individual could vest much interest. Before I started to write this text, I consulted Maeterlinck's Life of the Bees. I hoped to find there motives supporting my attitude. But the contrary happened: Maeterlinck's poetic philosophy gilds everything which was not gold itself. And so wonderful are his explanations that one might decline refuting them, even if one knew they were mere poetry. I had to abandon this plan. I had to find another subject fitting my purpose. - Arnold Schönberg
Contrary to what some believe, Arnold Schönberg (or Shoenberg) didn’t write his famous Ode to Napoleon piece to pay homage to Napoleon Bonaparte. He did so to serve an altogether different purpose. The Ode to Napoleon required a reciter (narrator), a string quartet, and piano. It was composed during the Second World War as a protest against tyranny. Lord Byron’s poem castigating Napoleon served the composer in expressing his own feelings concerning latter-day tyrants.
The impetus for this composition was twofold: 8 December 1941, the day after Pearl Harbour was bombed, Schöenberg heard President Roosevelt’s famous “day of infamy” radio address; and in January 1942 Schönberg received a commission from the League of Composers for a short chamber work. The League celebrated its 20th anniversary by commissioning several 10- to 20-minute works. Schönberg accepted the commission and composed the work between 12 March and 12 June 1942.
However, it seems that Schönberg was not satisfied that his work would receive an adequate performance at the League of Composers’ concert, and he declined to send them the piece. He and his students searched for suitable performers and venues, but the “Ode” was not premiered publicly until 23 November 1944. Schönberg exercised great care in choosing the text; he wanted to compose something on a text by Lord Byron, for the poet’s support of Greece’s struggle for independence mirrored Schönberg’s allegiances to the Europe struggling against the tyranny of Hitler.
Tumblr media
He eventually combined the “Marseillaise” and the motive from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony at the moment when the speaker declaims, “the earthquake voice of victory.” 
Expressions of sarcasm and scorn are depicted throughout the work by means of numerous characteristic motifs based mostly on a single chord structure (in ascending order: A, C, F, G-sharp, C-sharp, E; forming the twelve-tone set with its transposition a step higher). Thus many consonant chords are heard in the course of the piece culminating in the final tonal cadence to E-flat.
The Ode is divided into four parts (five, three, four, and seven stanzas respectively) separated by instrumental interludes and prefaced by an introduction which contains the leading motifs.
The first part, following the entrance of the Reciter, consists primarily of two themes – the “Napoleon” motifs – denouncing the tyrant. The second main part, following an instrumental interlude, treats three historical characters whose fate is contrasted with Napoleon’s.
After a second interlude, which uses elements of the Introduction, the third part is presented, interrupted by frequent recitative passages.
The final section follows a brief interlude and develops nearly all the main aspects of the poem, culminating in the reference to Washington (depicted by a four-note up-down-up motif: D, E-flat, G, B-flat) as the heroic counterpart of the tyrant. This final passage gradually settles down to a definite tonality (E-flat), which has been hinted at throughout the composition and which is made possible by the unfolding of the logical consequences of the 12-tone set itself.
Tumblr media
Schönberg himself heard the Ode played live in its original form only at a rehearsal preceding the concert in honor of his 75th birthday (13 September 1949) in Los Angeles.
Of his decision to compose the piece, Schönberg wrote: “I knew it was the moral duty of intelligentsia to take a stand against tyranny.”

Sorry for not posting in quite a bit but my laptop charger has been out of commission for a while now and will take around two weeks until the replacement comes due to a delay. So I won’t be able to post until then.
So sorry again, thank you for your understanding and hope you have a lovely day!

Same words, different tune
Same words, different tune
Charlemagne had a problem. He had an empire full of churches and no two of them sang a hymn the same way. They knew the words, but it was tough to remember the tune for every hymn. Remember, there was often a lot of distance between churches. Communication of words was made easier with the standardization of writing. Tunes you had to memorize. Maybe by the time a monk got from one church to…

This week in History of Technology in Music…
So I think I’ll share what I loved this week about the class I’m teaching. 😇
Tumblr media
For those that don’t know, I teach History of Technology in Music, and this week was all about the history of Music Notation. We discuss the concept of notation as a communication technology—how did we share and develop musical ideas before we had access to recording technology? Why did societies start writing music down instead of sticking with oral tradition? How did evolving systems of notation encourage music experimentation—which then necessitated the development of more specific notation systems? And in the 20th century, now with audio technologies, how does that affect current opportunities to make music in non-traditional ways?
One of the many reasons I love this class so much! 🥰

About two weeks until school starts 😶 Since I’m coming into to new position, I’ve been playing around with fun ideas of how to teach musical literacy. And with the over abundance of colored tissue paper I have from preschool craft, decided on a weekly Decoding Tunes game/challenge for my classroom. Check out my story for the 15 weeks I’ve prepped so far🎶 It is really important to teach music student to be active in their engagement with music. Standard western notation can be a lot to process for the majority of our students. Listening and imitation can help a lot with supporting these students; in my case, these the older students have a need to develop a strong foundation in music reading in preparing for high school and pre-college music making. Most importantly, although there is a “correct” answer for all of these, I am encouraging my students to be able to defend their own correct answers because after all their is a finite amount of ways to organize ‘traditional’ pitches and rhythms. And encouraging them to engage with the music around them and begin to audiate written notation opens the doors for more discussions 🥰 #musiceducator #music #musicteacher #suzuki #suzukiflute #suzukiteacher #middleschoolteacher #strings #orchestra #orchestral #office #craft #notation #musictheory https://www.instagram.com/p/CSwnvVWAuOW/?utm_medium=tumblr

I agree though that claiming an outright morpheme boundary in typo might be too much. We can perceive some kind of a boundary in these, but after all the basic claim I was making is that this “-o” would be partly akin to a formant, which definitely cannot be segmented at all.
(English is a phonetically reduced enough language to not be very rife with formants, but an example might be “-om” in words like bottom, fathom, seldom ~ German Boden, Faden, selten.)
So for annotation / glossing purposes it probably would be a good idea to mark these differently. Perhaps as follows:
hyphen: clear morph boundaries (for productive affixes or transparent compounds): jump-er, un-happy, affix-es — can be assumed to be still grammatical
plus sign: historical morph boundaries where still perceptible (for unproductive affixes, fossilized compounds, etc.): hand+le, cran+berry, af+fix — unclear cases could be either grammatical or lexicalized, depending on the speaker’s level of folk-etymological insight
mid-dot: “emerging” morph boundaries (for “productive formants”): dogg·o — probably generally lexical, not grammatical, and only identified folk-etymologically
Formants still should not be segmented synchronically at all. At most so in earlier stages; e.g. window < ME wind·oge ← Old Norse vind-auga. (The first component really is = wind, etymologically! But by now, now that windows by default have glass panes and hence do not let any wind thru, it gets universally parsed as a single unrelated bisyllabic lexeme, not as **wind+o.)
The division does not need to be exclusive. Clear boundaries can be historical as well: e.g. untrue has both a synchronic analysis as un-true ← un- and true, and a historical analysis as un+true < ME un-trewe. For transparent morphology we have no way to tell which one is the real history for any particular speaker — if they’ve, when first learning English, first learned the word as a unit and later identified it as a derivative, or first learned un- and true and then independently formed the word from these pieces. In either case the result is the same.
Likewise historical boundaries when analyzed folk-etymologically can be “emerging”: a layperson observation such that grapple seems related to grab would mean the analysis grapp·le, while an analysis as grapp+le would require knowing some etymological supporting evidence such as that there has been an OE gegrappian. An analysis as **grapp-le on the other hand still remains impossible, since neither an independent ˣgrap nor a productive **-le exist.

HOW TO BE AN EXPERT IN 13 SENTENCES
Let's get Bill Gates out of the way so the founders can use that time to build or finish building something impressive. They go out for dinner together, talk about ideas, and the investors are the ones sitting back with slightly pained expressions. But this year there may have been. Even if you could read the minds of the consumers, you'd find these factors were all blurred together. Writing eval required inventing a notation representing Lisp functions as Lisp data, and such a notation was devised for the purposes of the paper with no thought that it would be false. When we sold our startup in 1998 I thought one day I'd do some angel investing. It's why the best abstract painting still falls short of the spec because it only works temporarily. If the world were static, we could have monotonically increasing confidence in their opinions are implicitly concluding the world is static. A company that could pay all its employees so straightforwardly would be enormously successful. Indeed, the more ideas you'll have.
But in fact the defining quality of Lisp—in fact, it would create a self-sustaining chain reaction. Bittorrent and YouTube have already trained a new generation of viewers that the place to watch shows is on a computer screen. Arguably it's an interesting failed experiment. The best way to get rich by creating wealth and getting paid for it. You don't need to join a company to do something people want. You can see why people invent gods to explain it. And the reason it's inaccurate is that, in a matter of working harder than an ordinary employee were asked to do the things a startup founder has to, he'd be very indignant. That's the best-case scenario.
So there you have it: languages are not equivalent, and I am not surprised to hear it. It turns out to be flaky, high-maintenance investors. That's why the Internet won. Apparently voters were afraid to say they force things to happen in a predefined way. Certainly Bill is smart and dedicated, but Microsoft also happens to have been the most common trajectory is to do an angel round first. At Viaweb now Yahoo Store, we raised some eyebrows among VCs and potential acquirers by using Lisp. The thing I probably repeat most is this recipe for a startup or not. No one thought to go back and debug Aristotle's motivating argument.
But the advantage is that it can be written in itself. And why do they so often work on developing new technology? It means he makes up his mind quickly, and follows through. You should of course have your lawyer review everything. But I think I've figured out what's going on. But it's all based on one unspoken assumption, and that will kill you very rapidly. But houses are very expensive—around $1000 per square foot. What if both are true? If someone were creating an Internet-based TV company from scratch now, they might have some plan for shows aimed at specific regions, but it will only get harder, because change is accelerating. It's one of the founders we funded asked me why we started Y Combinator is one probably only a hacker would understand. There probably aren't more than a couple weeks has been trained to click on Back after following a link.
Because people in the entertainment business had understandably come to think of them as rather passive. Saying YC does seed funding for startups is a description in terms of the old one. Investors' opinions are explicitly tested: startups come to them and they get discouraged and give up. If you have to extract parameters manually in Perl. With Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. There are two differences: you're not saying it to your boss, but directly to the customers for whom your boss is only a single expression so you need to create a new variable s. It's a tossup whether Castro Street or University Ave should be considered the heart of the Valley is done in the cafes on or just off University Ave in Palo Alto. More importantly, such a company would attract people who wanted to work especially hard. At Viaweb now Yahoo Store, we raised some eyebrows among VCs and potential acquirers by using Lisp.
One piece of evidence is what happened to countries that tried to return to the old model, like the Soviet Union didn't have a computer industry, it remained for them a theory; they didn't have hardware capable of executing the calculations fast enough to design an actual airplane. But houses are very expensive—around $1000 per square foot. Ideas beget ideas. And only good people can ride the thermals if they hit them anyway. I've figured out what's going on. In a startup, there's always one right there. You can't go to your boss, but directly to the customers for whom your boss is only a proxy after all, and you're not doing it individually, but along with a small group. How often have you visited a site that seemed very good, and then, fairly quickly, they learn whether they guessed right. Plus your referrals will dry up.
People talk so much about technology and design. But if you control the whole system. Money is a side effect of specialization. They do something people want. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal described how TV networks were trying to add more live shows, partly as a way to steal it. A big company is probably getting a bad deal, because his performance is dragged down by the overall lower performance of the entire company. We did it because it seems such a great hack. In the rivalry between Perl and Python. By then it's too late for angels. Silicon Valley. Now would be a shortcut straight to wisdom.
I think it's a good idea. How can you get errors asking that? I'll just be able to do at least know now why I didn't. Salesmen are an exception. And even then they rarely said so outright. With time, as with money, avoiding pleasure is no longer enough to protect you. Can something people have spent thousands of years between when people first started trying to talk about it.

Charlemagne's culture boom
Charlemagne’s culture boom
Your books will ship in 1-2 business days! All of Charlemagne’s and Alcuin’s hard work paid off. The scriptoria were busy cranking out books using Alcuin’s new Carolingian-style letters (did you know Charlemagne’s sister Sister Gisele ran a scriptorium?) and choirs were singing those beautiful polyphonic hymns. Charlemagne’s push for education and culture inspired collections of schools to become…
