« From semio-ethics to semiotics of speech in music & musicology: a few theoretical (and utopian) projections » (p. 23-31)

Abstract : Situated in the domains of the philosophy of language, generalized linguistics and semiotics—and to some extent in the philosophy of science—semio-ethics is a field of research whose leading proponents are the Italian team of theorists, Susan Petrilli and Augusto Ponzio (2003, 2010). My essay applies this global vision of the world of signs to the domain of musical meaning (Tarasti 2006; Esclapez 2014). This theoretical and speculative hypothesis proposes a means by which the field of music semiotics can evolve beyond the communication model—the paradigm from which it emerged during the post-1960s theory of linguistic turn—towards something I call the “interpretation of musical speech.” Beginning with an overview of semio-ethics and some of its key concepts, I outline the nature of musical semiotics as it relates to present-day practice.
