Abstract
As cultural interaction has increased, the musical changes that take place in non-Western culture have numbered among the most important topics in the studies of world music s_ince the 1970s. Musical changes due to cultural contacts have been discussed in various terms: "cultural dissonance" (Meyer 1967); "purists and syncretists" (Blacking 1977); "influence or confluence" (Chou 1977); "Westernization or modernization" (Nettl 1978); and "musical transculturation" (Kartomi 1981). With the development of electronic technology, the changes are also attributed to "mediamorphosis," that is, electronic mutation of musical communication (Blaukopf 1983, 1994). Blacking (1995: 173) emphasizes the importance of the topic in general: The study of musical change is not only interesting because music reflects the deeper sources and meanings of social and cultural continuity and change; it is of vital concern to the future of individuals and societies because it may reveal not only how people have changed their music but also how, through the medium of music, people can change themselves in unexpected ways. Newly-composed Korean traditional music, called ch'angjak kugak, which emerged in the 1960s3 and steadily increased its value in the life of South Koreans, provides an example of a musical change that reflects and forcasts other changes in contemporary South Korea.



문화 간의 상호접촉이 증가함에 따라 음악분야에서도 접촉에 따른 변동이 커지게 되었다. 특히 서구문화와의 접촉과정에서 비서구 문화에 일어난 음악의 변화는 1970년대 이래 세계음악에 대한 연구에서 주요주제 가운데 하나로 자리매김 되어 왔다. 블래킹이 지적했듯이, 음악변동은 사회문화의 변화를 반영할 뿐만 아니라 역으로 사람들을 변화시키는 역할을 하기도 하므로 중요하게 취급되어야 할 문제이다. 1960년대에 만들어지기 시작해서 한국인의 삶에서 그 가치를 점차 확대시켜 온 창작국악(과거의 한국음악 전통에 뿌리를 두고 새로이 작곡된 전통적인 음악)은, 현대 한국사회의 변화를 반영하는 한편 역으로 한국사회의 변화를 예고하기도 하는 음악변동의 한 예가 된다.
