  SuperConductor: The Global Music Interpretation and Performance Program
A musically sensitive person needs to guide the interpretation process: it is not a machine that makes its own fully meaningful music interpretations, nor do we wish to achieve this (it is inherently impossible we believe).
The interpretation of music is a special function that has arisen in Western music through the ability to write down a musical thought, imperfectly.
Music files together with their interpretations can be transmitted on the internet by e-mail to others and immediately performed by anyone who has SuperConductor.

  Deterioration of Quality of Music Interpretation
To comprehend the present crisis in the musical world, it must be understood that music is an art that has been preserved and passed on by means of "oral traditions" which were fostered and transmitted with the same care and high moral sense as any of the great religious teachings.
Music notation is a relatively new and very limited development in the history of music.
Because the limitations of music notation only allow the preservation of the barest outlines of a musical composition, music remains an art that is passed on by word of mouth and personal demonstration.

 Elements of Music - Part Six
Music that is composed of a single line of melody (or a rhythmic line played on a percussion instrument) is said to have monophonic texture.
Music that is composed of an obviously predominant melody, accompanied by harmonic material and/or a clearly less-important melody, is said to have homophonic texture.
Considering musical texture in our second broad interpretation (the density of the simultaneous layering of different musical components) it should be noted that music also has a quality of thinness or thickness, transparency or opaqueness.

 2. Performance and Interpretation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The musical meaning of certain notational symbols has evolved through the course of time, and even among a sample of contemporary composers there may be disagreement concerning what subtle nuance a particular symbol indicates.
At this middle level of interpretation the attention of the performer extends beyond the sum of the notational symbols, for as s/he moves beyond pitch, duration, and articulation, s/he becomes concerned with phrase; phrases move into each other to form sections; sections create a movement and movements build to form a complete work.
Also, in such musics the aesthetic or historical importance of a particular performance may outweigh that of the work of which it is an instance, for example an unusually inspired improvisation by a prominent performer on a common tune.

 "The Listener's Interpretation of Music" by Herbert Brun
The job of the music critic would be to estimate which merit a musical work has, first, as compared with the general situation of music, and second, as to the impact it has or might have on the musical public's listening attitude.
It is an assumed privilege of music critics to pass speculative judgments on the value of such horizon widening experiences, and to pass their opinions on to the public.
This is music for listeners who are still conscious of the fact that, after all, they had once created the need for music in their minds, and who now are happy and gratified if this need is met, in that at last they can hear what they never had heard before.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Ornamentation

The field of psychoanalysis and music has been a latecomer to applied analysis and it was not until the last decade that a field of inquiry was even formulated with the publication of the anthology Psychoanalytic Explorations in Music.
Music, on the other hand, has in the past fifty years had an uneasy relationship to the interpretation of the musical text (so to speak) as opposed to interpretation as audible performance, the result of the positivistic trend in musicology.
The analysis of musical materials as data for psychological interpretation is a technique developed further in another study of Mahler's Symphony Number Two which leads Feder to some different (although not necessarily contradictory) views to those of Reik regarding the creative roots of that work.

 Richard Zeier :: OutBound Music.com
Though not initially recognized as a prodigy, what set him apart from other musicians was a desire to write music from the moment he first picked up a guitar, as opposed to just learning a song.
His eventual attempt to redesign music was less than overwhelmingly received in the Midwest and prompted his relocation to the wideopen, but unfamiliar world of Los Angeles.
Focusing on instrumental music, he enrolled in the Film Scoring program at UCLA Extension where he was exposed to writing for orchestra.

 Authenticity in the interpretation of music
Music, situations of happiness, mythology, faces engraved by time, certain sunsets and places, want to tell us something, or have already told us something we should not let faint, or they are about to tell us something.
DURING the last decades an interpretative movement appeared, decided to show us where the composer stops and where the performers start, assuring us that it knows the single corresponding to a composer's will sonic form of a musical work, as well as the degree of the arbitrariness of all the previous interpretative traditions.
At the center of this movement's project lies the restoration of the musical text; they want a score free of interpretative and editorial interventions, and also accurate enough to reject new arbitrariness.
