FALBO, Conrado Vito Rodrigues. The word in motion: some theoretical perspectives for the analysis of the song within the framework of popular music. Per musi [online]. 2010, n.22, pp.218-231. ISSN 1517-7599.

The present paper outlines some theoretical perspectives that can be useful to the analytical practices that focus on the song within the framework of popular music genres. The core of the theoretical perspectives presented here is an approach of the song based on the performance of the sung word, that is, the ensemble of interactions that take place between the performer's body, especially his/her voice, and the audience at the moment of the performance, may it be presential or mediatized. We began with Paul ZUMTHOR's ideas (1993; 2005; 2007) on performance and vocality to try to establish an interdisciplinary dialogue with other fields of knowledge, especially literary studies, theater and performance studies.

Keywords : popular music; song; performance.
