Abstract

The cross-pollination between the two fields is such that it provides a new perspective for people to see what should have been obvious but for some reason was overlooked. Thus, this study proposes the benefits of a cross-disciplinary approach to music and language. It begins with a survey of the parallel between the two then proceeds to observe how language structure and syntax help define musical forms and specific compositional techniques. Moreover, this study also presents how language in the form of lyrics can help explain the difference between the harmonic progressions in art music and pop music. Some type of arts such as drama, mime, poem (Yeats’ poem), and song (Four Orchestral Songs) are utilized in this study to show how to see the parallel between the two art forms, whether in terms of large-scale structures or detailed components as when we compare the syntaxes of music and language.
