Peculiarities of the authorship manifestation in the world music

Iia Fedorova

Abstract


Relevance of the study. The study of the world music is associated with many methodological problems, since the musicological toolkit to analyze this music has not yet been developed in Ukraine. The need for its development represents the relevance of this study.

The main objective of the study is to consider the peculiarities of authorship in the world music.

Methodology of the study. To reveal these peculiarities, the study material containing the compositions of the world’s most popular musicians of world music, namely the French band “Deep Forest”, the Benin singer Angélique Kidjo, and the Ukrainian band “DakhaBrakha”, was selected. In all three examples, the facts of borrowing “someone else’s” musical text were discovered. The use of “someone else’s” text in the analyzed compositions appeals to the issues of quotation in music, which were considered in detail in musicology literature by many researchers. It should be noted that the use of the quotation theory in relation to the world music is a process of adaptation of the musicological toolkit, which has developed in the music of academic tradition. However, this process is due to the lack of the required musicological toolkit for world music, which demonstrates the methodological problem of researching this kind of music.

Results and conclusions. The use of «someone else’s» musical text in the works of the world music musicians allows us to admit the idea that we face the fact of “double authorship”. But the authorship of «someone else’s» text is actually misappropriated by the musicians of the world music. However, the functioning of “someone else’s text” in the considered examples as a quote in relation to the author’s part of the compositions can explain the fact of misappropriation of someone else’s material, since the use of the quotation does not require “double authorship”. The use of the quotation theory for the analysis of world music explains the significance of the study findings.
