This is a study of the gugak orchestra and its role in Korean musical culture. What is gugak? Jong-mi Kim states that there are three situations in which music can be deemed gugak. The first case is when the music is played by traditional instruments, the second is when the music incorporates gugak characteristics, and the third is when both factors are present in the music (Kim 2004:31). Dongeun Noh argues that during the Japanese Occupation (1910-1945), the term gugak was coined to specify music that was specifically Korean. After Korean music was recognized as a cultural expression, the public began to think of it as one genre among many, which lowered its status in Korean musical culture (in Kim 2004:26). In 1962, the South Korean government passed a Cultural Properties Protection Law hoping to retain the heritage that was lost through decades of war. In 1972, the government passed a Cultural and Arts Promotion Law to give “financial support to preserving the nation’s architecture and maintaining arts and crafts” (Seth 2011:489). It was during this time, through government funding and the desire to preserve culture, that innovation in Korean traditional music began to emerge. This project is a study of tradition and innovation in Korean music, which is a valuable cultural asset to Korean people in and outside of Korea. The music encompasses the foundation of Korean roots and carries the story of Korean history. In this project, I focus on the Gyeonggi Provincial Traditional Music Orchestra and the gugak orchestra’s function and role in Korean musical society. I also present diverse opinions about innovation in traditional music expressed by current Korean performers.
The research reported here sought to identify top managers' mental models about the management of diversification and to determine whether these beliefs are associated with important strategic decisions. The study identified three broad sets of beliefs or orientations about the management of diversification that are commonly held by managers of large diversified firms. The study found that these management orientations are significantly associated with a number of key strategic choices, including decisions about the extent of diversification, divestment activity, new product development efforts, and research and development spending. The results offer empirical evidence of the influence of managerial cognition on strategic decision making.
The Jones polynomial is an important knot invariant introduced in 1984 by Vaughn Jones. There are multiple ways to compute the Jones polynomial and in this paper we will explore a technique introduced by L. Zulli using trip matrices. In particular, we will focus on using trip matrices to compute the Jones polynomial of T(2,n) torus knots. Jones proved an explicit formula for the Jones Polynomial of all torus knots, but the proof relies on heavy machinery from Abstract Algebra. We provide a more elementary proof of this formula for T(2, n) knots using trip matrices and basic Linear Algebra.
Speaking to a long-standing tradition of the Rockies Report Cards "grading" the region on a variety of attributes, this year includes a brief look at three areas: crime and incarceration in the Rockies, historic preservation in the Rockies, and an evaluation of regional representation by elected officials. The Report Card also tackles issues of wildlife in the Rockies, dedicating three sections to the topic: "Wildlife: Range and Condition," "Wildlife Management," and "Impacts of Energy Development on Wildlife." Tangentially, the Report Card addresses water issues and population changes with the sections: "Wild and Scenic Rivers" and "Repopulating the Rockies." Edited by Walter E. Hecox (CC professor of economics), Elizabeth L. Kolbe (CC class of 2008), and Matthew K. Reuer.
The singer faces the difficult task of learning not only music, but also the song’s lyrics. For the classically trained singer, a common way to begin learning a piece is to isolate the music from the text by singing the music with only a single syllable. When the lyrics are reinserted, the challenge for the singer is to connect the words to the music’s melody in a sophisticated and expressive manner. The ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between the music and the meaning of the lyrics. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationships between the music and text in vocal repertory from 1600 until 1950 through the analysis of seven songs. This paper presents observations about music-text relationships that are directly applicable to enhancing the performance of these works.

The voice, with its seemingly limitless capacity for expression, plays a powerful role in conveying emotion and meaning in music. Meaning is defined by Ian Cross and Elizabeth Tolbert as “[an] original something that refers to something else beyond itself” (2011: 24). In this paper, I use the word meaning to encompass the non-emotional responses, impressions, associations or experiences that occur within a listener while interacting with music. In the history of European concert music, discussions of emotion and meaning in music revolved around the voice beginning in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Before then, European writers did not believe that music had meaning in itself, but was merely a source of pleasure.
This is a study of “Jauk Manis,” a traditional Balinese dance piece that sheds light on the techniques of performance-based variation used in gamelan music. It is a free-standing dance piece derived from a character originally presented in the traditional dance drama, Calonarang. The Jauk character represents a guardian spirit. Its characterization is developed through the costume, choreography, and music of the solo dance. The musical accompaniment is defined by consistencies within its form, content, and rhythmic variation, however, no two performances of “Jauk Manis” are alike. The shared leadership roles of the dancer, drummer, and flute players contribute to the distinctiveness of each performance, as do the specific context and the interpersonal dynamics between a particular gamelan and dancer. A comparison of several renditions of “Jauk Manis,” illustrated by musical examples, reveals the range of variation that occurs in this dance. Ethnographic interviews with musicians and dancers explain the interaction among the various performers. The significance of this study is that it provides a model for comprehending sources of variation in other genres of Balinese music. An understanding of the interaction between the dancer and musicians in a more improvisational piece, such as “Jauk Manis,” illuminates the differences between one performance and the next in Balinese music generally. The research for this paper is based on field work conducted in Bali and the United States during 2013.
The study reported here examined the relationship between executives' career experiences and their beliefs and understandings about the management of diversification. The study identified three broad sets of beliefs or orientations that executives hold about the management of diversification. In spite of a longstanding theoretical basis for hypothesizing that managerial demography will influence cognition, the study found no association between the top managers' career experiences that were considered in this study and their beliefs about the management of diversification. Based on this finding of a lack of relationships between demography and managerial beliefs, the paper offers some new theorizing on the relationship between career experiences and managers' beliefs about the management of diversification. It also suggests some implications for human resource practices, specifically the recruiting and development of top executives in large diversified firms.

What is folk music? What defines the folk sound? Can modern adaptations of folk songs be considered authentic? What makes folk music relevant today? In order to answer these questions, my senior recital explores the repertories of both American and Irish folk music. For these two repertories, I will identify the key elements of folk music by analyzing and evaluating modern adaptations of traditional songs and styles. As I prepared my recital of traditional and contemporary folk music, I studied the vocal techniques appropriate for each piece and its cultural context. I learned the pieces for my recital via secondary orality, the practice of learning music from recordings without the use of sheet music, as a means of retaining authenticity. I argue that understanding both the traditional roots of folk songs and the ways in which contemporary pieces evolved is crucial to the interpretation of contemporary folk music.
The most recent innovations in the music industry that have been gaining attention are streaming services. Spotify is one such service that has garnered much media attention. In my thesis I question just how innovative this service is by comparing Spotify with its historical precedents. In doing so, I reveal that many aspects of Spotify continue patterns that have persisted for many years. However, there are truly innovative aspects of the service as well. Still, rather than subscribing to a technological determinism, I seek to emphasize the human agents that wield technologies and note these agents' susceptibility to corruption and monopolistic practices.
