"Social networks are critical for the creation and consumption of music. An edited collection, Social Networks and Music Worlds introduces students and scholars of music in society through the core concepts and tools of social network analysis. The collection showcases their use by sociologists, historians and musicologists examining, in turn, the punk, jazz, folk, classical music, Riot Grrrl, indie acoustic, R&B and calypso scenes. An overarching introduction is provided by leading network scholar and cultural sociologist Nick Crossley. The collection builds upon insights from canonic texts in the sociology of music, with the crucial innovation of examining musical network interaction via formal methods. With network analysis in the arts and humanities at an emergent stage, Social Networks and Music Worlds highlights its possibilities for non-scientists. Contributions hail from leading and emerging scholars who present social network graphs to represent different music worlds, locating individuals, resources and styles within them. The collection sits at the nexus of sociological, musicological and cultural studies traditions. Its range should ensure a large scholarly readership"--Provided by publisher.

"Search the Internet for the 100 best songs or best albums. Dozens of lists will appear from aficionados to major music personalities. But what if you not only love listening to the blues or country music or jazz or rock, you love reading about it, too. How do you separate what matters from what doesn't among the hundreds--sometimes thousands--of books on the music you so love? In the Best Music Books series, readers finally have a quick-and-ready list of the most important works published on modern major music genres by leading experts. In 100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own, Edward Komara, former Blues Archivist of the University of Mississippi, and his successor Greg Johnson select those histories, biographies, surveys, transcriptions and studies from the many hundreds of works that have been published about this vital American musical genre. Komara and Johnson provide a short description of the contents and the achievement of each title selected for their "Blues 100." Entries include full bibliographic citations, prices of copies in print, and even descriptions of specific editions for book collectors. 100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own also includes suggested blues recordings to accompany each recommended work, as well as a concluding section on key reference titles--or as Komara and Johnson phrase it: "The Books behind the Blues 100." 100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own serves as a guide for any blues fan looking for a road map through the history of--and even history of the scholarship on--the blues. Here Komara and Johnson answer the question of not only what is a "blues" book, but which ones are worth owning." -- Publisher's description.

"Trois cents photographies donnant à voir autant d'actions musicales différentes, dont les enregistrements sont regroupés sur un disque compact encarté à la fin du livre, composent le présent ouvrage où l'on trouvera, entre autres exemples : des musiques de grands rituels, comme celui, si exceptionnel, du Sigui (ici celui de 1967), que les Dogons (Mali) né célèbrent qu'une fois, sept ans de suite, tous les soixante ans, ou encore, d'une part, des opérations de semailles (Sénégal, 1967), de l'autre le culte des morts (Bénin 1969), avec dans les deux cas des personnages masqués, aux voix elles aussi masquées et comme venues d'outre-tombe ; des musiques de pur plaisir, comme celle d'une jeune et jolie personne jouant d'un instrument baptisé en français "tape-cuisse" ; des descriptions d'instruments de musique, entre autres un "xylophone double sur fosse", accordé suivant une échelle de timbres, et un "xylophone sur cadre" à l'accord équiheptaphonique. Au total, le tableau est celui de l'art de "musiquer" pour reprendre la formule de Jean-Jacques Rousseau de dix-sept groupes ethniques d'Afrique francophone."--P. [4] of cover.

Although they didn't know it then, when the Rolling Stones embarked on their farewell tour of England in March, 1971, having announced they were about to go into tax exile in the south of France, it was the end of an era. For the Stones, nothing would ever be the same again.

"The central point of this book is the realization that the creative work of Alban Berg, which in recent years has moved to the forefront of scholarly interest, is largely rooted in autobiography, so that therefore one can gain access to the music by studying the inner biography of its creator. Accordingly, the first of the three parts of this volume outlines a character portrait of this great composer. Part two considers the conditions relevant to a deeper understanding of Berg and of the Second Viennese School generally. In part three, then, Berg's key works will be analyzed and semantically deciphered in terms of his inner biography. The study is based not only on the sources in print but also on the rich unpublished material. Alban Berg was incapable of composing without a program. He needed an extra-musical stimulus. With him, personal experience was the indispensable condition of the creative process: the autobiographic reference was all-important for composing."
