Netzwerk Sound: Eine didaktische Herausforderung der populären Musik

Translated title of the contribution: Network Sound: An Educational Challenge of Popular Music

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Since its electrification, sound has become a musical and aesthetic leitmotiv in the history of popular music with far-reaching effects on the production of music, the development of musical genres and their reception. Based on the idea of ​​a far-reaching network, sound mediates as a surface phenomenon between the underlying music, its phenomenal perception as well as the socio-cultural contexts of producers and recipients. Guided by this concept, communication-technological, sociocultural, psychological, aesthetic and epistemological aspects of the sound are examined. A subsequent discourse analysis of music didactic positions and qualitative empirical investigations of specialist literature and textbooks show developments in the didactic approach. On this basis, Jan-Peter Herbst designs a goal-oriented system for the deliberate use of sound in listening education, music practice, sound design and the transmission of musical-cultural knowledge. Three exemplary lessons as well as a collection of teaching practice topics and methods illustrate the theoretical explanations.
