(p.101) Listening to Music
Speaking of Music

Lawrence M. Zbikowski

Fordham University Press

Through an exploration of the ending section of an elegiac work for guitar from the early nineteenth century, this chapter explores an alternate account of the means through which music signifies. This exploration leads to a consideration of different means through which music can enact commemoration. It works towards a description of processes of signification that differ from those of language. The value of music for philosophy, it is argued, is in its demonstration of this alternate mode of signification and in its suggestion of a phenomenology of understanding that stands on a different basis from that of language.

Keywords:   signification, sonic analogs, funerary music, phenomenology
