BEAM 51. Meeting 30.01.2020,  AKU5 R 501

 

Pedro Filho Amorim (UFRB, Brasilien) "Other Parties: Rhythmanalysis of musical venues at the fringes of the Carnival industry."


Salvador, the historical first capital of Brazil, is since 2015 one of the "Cities of Music", in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Although "Carnival has been responsible for promoting the local music industry on an international scale."(UNESCO, 2015) Salvador has a much diverser musical scene, too often overshadowed by the massive tourism industry, of which Carnival is the main attraction. Spaces publicly recognized as important musical venues, with regular audience in long term activities (sometimes over a decade), are systematically neglected by mass media and authorities. Combining Lefebvre's (1991) rhythmanalysis  and the concept of third space (BHABHA:2004, SOJA:1996) this work aims to address the temporalities (discontinuities, intensities, reverberations) of such spaces in the fashion of a musical analysis, crossing triadic structures such as: popular/canonic/innovative music; ontology/epistemology/historicity (SOJA:1996); energy/space/time/; melody/harmony/rhythm (LEFEBVRE:1991). The analysis is focused on pair of examples, comprising three categories:  (1) public institutions promoting "serious" music: regular classical music concerts at Museum of Sacred Art and a weekly jazz session in Museum of Modern Art; (2) spaces occupied by popular musical movements: 'Reggae Square', at historical center, and 'Rock Stage', during Carnival, at Piatã beach; (3) spaces occupied by artists' initiative: the occupation of Lina Bo Bardi's iconic building Coaty, by experimental artists, and weekly free concerts by one of 'axé-music' pioneers singer/songwriter Gerônimo, at the stairways of Paço Church (famous location of "O pagador de promessas" movie, Palme D'Or in Cannes in 1962) .
