Abstract
Is there ever a simple place of convergence where two media coexist and interact equally? If one assumes that there is indeed a mental space where media convgerge and are understood simultaneously, what problems arise if an when one medium overrides the meaning of another? It is difficult to distinguish with precision what individuals respond to in the reception of media presented simultaneously. The relationship between music and text together is a complex one I aim to analyze in this thesis. Using the poet-composer combinations of Schubert and Goethe, and Britten and Donne, I will analyze the interaction between text and music. Additionally, I have conducted empirical studies in Edmonton and Munich to investigate the felt engagement of participants as well as any cultural differences that may be present in terms of how the media are received. I will also engage in a cultural analysis of the changes in pedagogical approches in public education that might make students more willing to appreciate areas of media that might otherwise be categorized by them as only academic.
