The "Illusion of Life" Rhetorical Perspective: An Integrated Approach to the Study of Music as Communication.
Sellnow, Deanna; Sellnow, Timothy
Critical Studies in Media Communication, v18 n4 p395-415 Dec 2001
Suggests the "illusion of life" rhetorical perspective increases understanding about how discursive linguistic symbols and non-discursive aesthetic symbols function together to communicate and persuade in didactic music. Argues that lyrics and music work together to offer messages comprised of both conceptual and emotional content through the constructs of virtual experience (lyrics) and virtual time (music). (RS)
