Meaningful engagement with music composition

By Andrew R. Brown and Steve C. Dillon


Musical value cannot be experienced without direct knowledge of music, and engagement with the\ud interactive elements of materials, expressive character and structure. Through these channels\ud something is communicated, something is transmitted, some residue of ‘meaning’ is left with us.\ud When a work of art stirs us it is more than simply sensory stimulation or some kind of emotional\ud indulgence. We are gaining knowledge and expanding our experience... contributing to knowledge of\ud ourselves and of the world
