Methodological Principles Applied for Analyzing the Dynamics of Individual Musical Style

Galina Poberezhna

Abstract


Relevance of the study. Examination of individual musical style requires substantial summarization of scientific results and bringing them into a new information and exploration space, which should resonate with scientific discoveries in the related fields of knowledge. The study substantiates the need for a new methodological approach to the analysis of an individual musical style as a systemic integral unity. The author recommends calling this new methodology “sacro-holistic”, i.e. the one that corresponds to the highest possible degree of scientific generalization as of today. The concept of an “individual style” is explained in an expanded manner: not only as a composer’s style, but also as a style of a performing musician and other explainers of music (musicologists, educators, critics, lecturers, etc.). Creative personality determines the dynamics of formation of the style basic characteristics. Different stages of this process require application of different analysis techniques identified in the article.

Main objective of the study. The main objective of the study is to explain the need for a new (sacral-holistic) methodological approach to the analysis of an individual musical style, which can correspond to the highest possible scientific generalization as of today.

Methodology. History-based method is used to identify the series of methodologies in all major areas of public conscience that are directed by cosmological factor of integrity; and system-based method is used to develop a classification system for the analysis of individual musical style at different stages of its formation.

Findings and conclusions. In a view of radical transformations in scientific concepts of the twentieth century, the methodology for analyzing an individual musical style should also be modified. The main argument for introducing methodological novelties into musicology is the following: in analyzing the artistic style, it is necessary to take into account the personality of the author, i.e. all individual and psychophysiological factors affecting its formation. The significance of such approach lies in the fact that it will open yet another channel for comprehending a human being as a cosmic phenomenon and provide new implications to the entire humanitarian scientific knowledge that has always sought to recognize music as a particular sacred sphere of the Being.
