Abstract / Summary

What is the nature of time in music? This paper considers a number of dualisms in the way we conceive of and describe time, and how these dualisms function in the relationship between music analysis and music perception. Using the opening of the second movement from Webern's Symphony as a case study, McTaggart's tensed/un-tensed distinction will be considered, as will the static/dynamic conceptions of Newtonian/Einsteinian time. Various analytical methods will be placed relative to these dualisms.
