Memesatz contra Ursatz: Memetic perspectives on the aetiology and evolution of musical structure
Jan, S. (2010). Memesatz contra Ursatz: Memetic perspectives on the aetiology and evolution of musical structure. Musicae Scientiae, 14(1), 3-50.
This article discusses the aetiology and evolution of musical structure, specifically the sonata-form exposition, from a memetic perspective. It regards established musical forms as replicated schemata arising from the conglomeration of foreground-level memes, the resultant archetypes (structural memes or Memesätze) being replicated (reinstantiated) by different collections of functionally analogous (allelic) memes. After a discussion of the theoretical background including the top-down/bottom-up generative dichotomy as it applies to form, and some attributes of memes affecting conglomeration three sonata expositions, by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, are discussed as specific evidence in support of the general hypotheses advanced.

Cultivating a ‘Digital Jungle’ : Toward a Hybrid Governance Perspective on Infrastructure Evolution Niemimaa, Marko; Zimmer, Markus Philipp (Association for Information Systems, 2020)Digital infrastructures (DIs) evolve rather than following planned development trajectories. We know this phenomenon as drift, that is, infrastructures drift from management control. Infrastructure drift has motivated ...

Evolution of the longitudinal and azimuthal structure of the near-side jet peak in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV ALICE Collaboration (American Physical Society, 2017)In two-particle angular correlation measurements, jets give rise to a near-side peak, formed by particles associated to a higher-pT trigger particle. Measurements of these correlations as a function of pseudorapidity (η) ...
