Joel Chadabe, NYU Steinhardt, USA: Music as Emergence

Our music reflects the way we think. At every time in history, there has been an idea in the air that has been reflected in music. Today’s idea in the air is emergence, the result of an underlying complexity of interactions that together produce an unforeseeable result. From this perspective, it is the composer that defines the parts of the ensemble and their interactions that will create the general characteristics of the musical result.
