  Postmodern music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, one significant role of music in postmodern society is to act as a badge by which people can signify their identity as a member of a particular subculture.
Aleatory music began to blur the boundaries between the composer and the audience, and between the musician and the environment, which was a postmodern trend.
As a musical condition, postmodern music is music situated after the modern age, during the present period, where music has become valued primarily as a commodity and a culture, rather than a form of idealized modernist expression for its own sake.

 Postmodernism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From this perspective, the schools of thought labelled "postmodern" are not as widely at odds with their time period as the polemics and arguments appear to point, for example, to the shift of the basis of scientific knowledge to a provisional consensus of scientists, as posited by Thomas Kuhn.
Postmodernism has manifestations in many modern academic and non-academic disciplines: philosophy, theology, art, architecture, film, television, music, theatre, sociology, fashion, technology, literature, and communications are all heavily influenced by postmodern trends and ideas, and are thoroughly scrutinised from postmodern perspectives.
Postmodern philosophy is a radical criticism of Western philosophy, because it rejects the universalizing tendencies of philosophy.

Zorn's music does something palpable to its listeners, or at least incites them to a form of action, of awakening; it activates the listener in a manner that a great deal of conventional and commercially-produced music, when it casts itself as soother or anaesthetic, does not.
Such music, which Attali approves as the harbinger of a new age of composition and of listener-involvement in autonomous musical production, freed from the aesthetic and social restraints of the recording industry, Zorn calls the "dead, lifeless music" of "boring old farts," of whom, for him, Cage is a leading example (Woodward 35).
Postmodern genre, she asserts, finally attempting to define that which refuses definition, is characterized by its appropriation of other genres, both high and popular, by its longing for a both/and situation rather than one of either/or.

 Postmodern music
As a musical style, postmodern music contain characteristics of postmodern art—that is, art after modernism.

The DJ uses records to make a musical collage, just like Quentin Tarantino might make a new movie which is just a lot of scenes copied from old movies or an architect might build a skyscraper shaped like a grandfather clock.

In the postmodern mode, not only are Ulysses and his crew both listening to the siren song, they are singing along with it as in "Sing Along with Mitch" and perhaps marking the beat with their oars--one-two, one-two, one-two-three-four.
But if the increasing secularization of music in the European late Baroque and 18th century led on the one hand to the Jacobin utopianism of the _Ninth Symphony_, it produced on the other something like Kant's aesthetics of the sublime, that is a mysticism of the bourgeois ego.
Modernism in music, say the infinitely compressed fragments of late Webern, is the perception in the midst of the bad trip, of dissonance, of a momentary cohesion and radiance, whose power is all the greater because it shines out of chaos and evil.

 Popular Music and Society: Making sense out of postmodern music?
The postmodern sensibility as expressed in music is reflective of the spirit of the late twentieth century.
The boundaries between popular music (with many of its roots in African and Latin American music) and what is commonly considered "art music" (with many of its roots in European culture) are often intentionally and unintentionally blurred, crossed, or obliterated.
Even though European music has reflected some mixing of cultures for hundreds of years, and some composers in the first half of the twentieth century have made use of genre mixing, there are notable distinctions that set postmodern music apart from music that came before the 1960s.

 Postmodernist Music
She describes the postmodernist properties of the music video channel within the parameters of cultural studies and screen theory, even though by definition postmodernist MTV is a constantly changing format that defies generalizations.
So "cool" postmodern music, while not totally escaping the properties of commodity, is not merely filler between commercials, or a commercial in itself.
The distinctions between types of postmodern music may seem contradictory when postmodernism is supposed to be about the erosion of the older distinction between high culture and so-called mass or popular commercial culture.

I. Fear of Music: Postmodernism and Music Television [1] The first time I heard the terms "postmodernism" and "the postmodern" was at the "Marxism and Interpretation of Culture Conference" at the University of Illinois during the torpid summer of 1983.
Indeed, the argument that music video as cultural form and MTV as televisual apparatus were quintessential exemplars of postmodern culture has become the dominant interpretation of music television within cultural studies.
In the cynical postmodern sensibility of MTV (and, for Grossberg, popular culture as a whole), there is no pretension to making a difference in the structure or fabric of everyday life beyond the differences of image and appearance.

 A FLIGHT FROM LIMINALITY: HOME IN COUNTRY AND GOSPEL MUSIC
Hall's account of the liminality of postmodern Yuppie existence is perceptive and engaging, as is his assessment of New Age music as a mouthpiece of that liminality.
If New Age music is the music of the Yuppies, country music is, at least traditionally, the music of the "Rednecks." The liminality experienced by rednecks results from the marginality of the redneck community.
As country music becomes the music of the upwardly mobile, it ceases to be the voice of the liminally stuck.

 WHITE NOISE / WHITE HEAT // LARRY McCAFFERY
Postmodernism is a term I myself helped to promote back in the 70s to describe the new sorts of innovation fiction that began appearing back in the 60s.
Thus, postmodernism uses the related strategies of collage, intertextuality, reflexivity, and pastiche to present their elements—the characters and events in literature and film, the themes, leitmotifs, melodies and riffs in music, the visual materials in painting and sculpture, together with the "self" responsible for the creation of these elements—as heterogeneous collections of cultural accumulations.
Though I will be focusing on music, I will also be suggesting that in our current age of electronic reproduction and replication, postmodern artists in general are responding to the idea that the unique status of not only art but also of human beings themselves is being challenged and redefined by these same technological transformations.

 Kramer: Classical Music and Postmodern Knowledge
Music has figured familiarly in modern Western culture as the vehicle for everything that cannot be represented or denoted.
By one reckoning, music serves this function in Apollonian terms, reviving ancient figures of cosmic harmony in the modern form of aesthetic order--the tangible embodiment of rationality, unity, universality, and truth.
The Dionysian complement of this process, in which the withdrawal appears as a rupture and music taps emotions and desires at depths beyond the reach of any order, is equally pervasive as a cultural trope.

The great musical centerpiece of the 1987 Next Wave Festival was John Adams' highly acclaimed opera Nixon in China, directed by wunderkind Peter Sellars.
He began his musical odyssey after receiving a degree in philosophy at Cornell; study at New York's Juilliard School was followed by a move west, work with Darius Milhaud and Luciano Berio, and a lot of electric tinkering in the 1960s.
Because of minute differences in their mechanics, the two machines varied slightly in their playback speeds; the music was occasionally synchronized, but more often the two tracks were slightly out of alignment with each other.

A survey of twentieth-century music inevitably must deal with these questions, particularly when the music of the final third-or-so of that century is discussed.
I caution the reader, therefore, against using these traits as a checklist to help identify a given composition as postmodern or not: postmodern music is not a neat category with rigid boundaries.
My response to this situation is to try to open up the intellectual space through the music I know the best and love the most--the concert music of the 20th century.

of postmodern thought broadly conceived to include poststructuralist philosophy, philosophies of embodiment, postmodern theory, feminist theory, and historical epistemology.
Selected readings in postmodern thought provide a basis for critique of contemporary approaches to music theory and analysis in such areas as: linear analysis (tonal and post-tonal), set theory, timbral analysis, and others as appropriate to the interests of seminar participants.
Critique of these contemporary approaches will consider such topics as: what constitutes the musical object, how it is conceived, what kinds of evidence figure in the theoretical and analytical project, how is the musical object represented.

But it take more than just "a good heart." If the music stinks and the preacher stumbles over every other word, the worshipers are distracted from God and stumble over their leaders instead of bump into the presence of their God.
There is something real and gritty about the music postmodern worship leaders select for their worship services.
Whether it is Gregorian chanting, the prayers of the early church fathers set to music, ancient hymns or 21st Century music, leaders are selecting the music that has theological rigor and has the artistic integrity to help usher the worshipers into the presence of God.
