Monstres en musique et autres monstruosités musicales


The present work aims to explore the different modalities of expression of the monstrous in the musical domain, from the 18th to the 21st century. It thus proposes to evaluate its evolution and polymorphism, according to the ideologies that underlie it, the representations that found it, and the genres with which it is associated. 

Therefore, if opera necessarily has an important place in the corpus of the analyzed works, and to a lesser extent the cinema, the monstrous being embodied in the figure - oh so labile - of the monster, the song and the instrumental music will also be summoned.

Moreover, beyond these generic distinctions, the monstrous is set up as an aesthetic, and thus rests on stylistic singularities that the thirteen articles presented here highlight. The combination of musical analysis, dramaturgy, history of musical practices and aesthetics allows us to take into account the multiple musical avatars of the monster and the monstrous.

Under the supervision of Julien Garde.
