Is Music Joy ? Retrofitting Ancient Music

Dept. of Religion and Philosophy (November 12, 2020)

SEMINAR SERIES : Bartlett Lecture at Yale Divinity School and FNRA: Chinese and Cross-Cultural Health Humanities Lecture Series at HKBU

MAJOR SPEAKER : Chua, Daniel K L
LENGTH : 96 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : Joy seems an unlikely paradigm for music theory, Yet it was fundamental to music theories from different parts of the ancient world. Today, joy is not fundamental to music theory; if anything, much philosophical thought on music veers towards the tragic. This talk considers the relationship between music and joy, and in what sense a theology of joy might help in recovering joy as a music theoretical paradigm today.
