Sample text

Reification in cultural analysis relates to the outmoded, yet still prevalent, view that a cultural text or performance has only inherent meaning. So for instance, in this view music, particularly that selectively identified and canonised as great, has an intrinsic autonomy that raises it above the social and political world. This autonomy guarantees its greatness. Reified aesthetics have been applied not only to art music but also to certain forms of popular music. For example, Carl Engel, in an organicist metaphor adopted without acknowledgement by Cecil Sharp, described what have become known as folk songs as akin to the ‘wild flowers indigenous to a country, which thrive unaided by art’ (Engel, 1866: 23; Sharp, 1907: 1).

The creative realisation of experience in this sense seems to make it more real. As this occurs, the creative realisation of experience may sometimes involve an intense, even anguished struggle against inherited meanings and forms. Trying to say something in an innovative way, or move beyond common-sense meanings and conventional storylines, can be an arduous and not necessarily fruitful quest. It may seem that that the past weighs down heavily on the effort to achieve a new way of expressing our experience or, in the face of stock codes and outworn conventions, articulating a more faithful narration of it in a changed present.

This capacity is realised when a specific experience becomes clarified and intensified in a way that moves it to completion, gives it a more general significance, and makes it a source of illumination for others. It’s then that it comes to resonate in their lives just as an experience gains its sense of being an exceptional moment in the flow of time. Yet it is only exceptional in relation to that flow. The exceptional moment is never an isolated moment. The unique feeling of an experience is implicated in intersubjective communication with others, and integral to our everyday associations and relations.
