The Transformational Power of Contemporary
The transformational power is two-fold: It lies in the music's underlying philosophy and in the character of the music itself. We first document the philosophy of CCM, which is a doctrine of license under the guise of a more relaxed, grace-filled approach to Christian living and theology. On the musical side, we examine the elements of contemporary worship, every aspect of which is designed to create a sensual, mystical emotional experience.
As Michael W. Smith says, contemporary music "helps you enter into the presence of God." The major elements are the syncopated dance rhythms, un-resolving chord sequences, sensual vocal techniques, electronic modulation, the rise and fall in intensity, and the repetition. We illustrate and analyze each of these elements.
