Pub. Date:
Bennighof (music theory, Baylor U.) analyzes the music of singer-songwriter Paul Simon, discussing each song and album chronologically within the context of Simon's personal life and the musical and cultural setting. He considers how each song integrates text and music, specifically how the musical setting relates the text through form, style, harmonic structure, or other elements. He concludes with a brief analysis of Simon's creative identity, aesthetic perspective, and compositional methods. Both general readers and musicians could find the book accessible; an explanation of the musical elements the author refers to in the text is included in the appendix.
