This collection examines the multiple ways people listen to, consume, and produce music and sound in an increasingly digital world. Technologies such as social networks, recommendation algorithms, virtual cloud storage, and portable listening devices increasingly mediate both personal and communal experiences with music. While such technologies may be convenient, their unexamined use raises ethical, socio-political, and philosophical questions. This volume brings together multiple contributions which engage with these questions and others posed by emergent musical and social technologies. Drawing upon a range of different areas of inquiry, it provides a varied critical approach to the question of how people interact with music in the modern era and debates the universal themes of modern music consumption.

"Les années 1945-2015, une traversée musicale de la deuxième partie du XXe siècle, vue par un musicien qui pratiqua plus ou moins toutes les formes d'expression musicale. Henri-Claude Fantapié, chef d'orchestre, compositeur, directeur de conservatoire, musicologue, fit aussi, selon les époques, des incursions dans les mondes du jazz, de la chanson, de la musique de rue, de la critique. Il participa à des colloques universitaires et à des commissions officielles en France et en Europe. Il rencontra et joua avec quelques-uns des plus grands solistes comme avec de jeunes musiciens frais émoulus de conservatoires. Un pied dans le monde des professionnels les plus exposés, l'autre dans son département de la Seine-Saint-Denis, il a laissé une partie de son coeur en Finlande (dont il est chevalier de l'ordre du Lion). Ce livre n'est pas une autobiographie mais le procès-verbal partiel et partial d'une vie dans un monde en constante mutation, qui va de l'immédiat après-guerre jusqu'aux premières années du xxIe siècle, en passant par Mai 68."--Page 4 of cover.

Explores the Science and Practice Of Acoustics for Arts Centers Employing the experiences of a world-renowned acoustician celebrated for the successful design of multi-use performing arts centers, Acoustics of Multi-Use Performing Arts Centers examines the complexities of this venue and discusses the challenges and solutions that arise in the concept, design, construction and commissioning phases. This book addresses the various programming needs of a multi-use performing arts center (needs that can range from symphony, opera and ballet to highly-amplified concerts and Broadway productions) and provides instruction from the planning of the initial concept to the final tuning stages. While assuming a basic understanding of the principals of sound, construction and performance, the author includes architectural drawings drawn to scale and presents case studies with in-depth discussion of undocumented halls. He also provides a full chapter on tuning multi-use halls and offers an inside look at design options for adjustable acoustics that include stage, pit and hall design. In addition, the book: * Covers the fundamentals of acoustics as it relates to initial stages of multi-use hall design * Explores the concepts of acoustics in terms of new and renovated spaces * Defines the basic components of the building structure * Examines floors, walls, ceilings, shells, and finishes and how they can be designed to achieve acoustic excellence * Discusses how to use and tune adjustable acoustic systems in a multi-use hall in order to achieve acoustic excellence Designed as a step-by-step guide to achieving outstanding acoustics in multi-use performance spaces, Acoustics of Multi-Use Performing Arts Centers serves students, architects, engineers, designers and acousticians.

Actor-musicianship is a permanent feature of the musical theatre landscape. Actor-musician shows can be seen from Bradford to Broadway, from village halls to international arena tours. However, with the exception of a couple of academic papers, there has been nothing written about this fascinating area of theatre practice. Jeremy Harrison's book addresses this deficit, operating as both a record of the development of the actor-musician movement and as a practical guide for students, educators, performers and practitioners. It explores the history of actor-musicianship, examining its origins, as well as investigating - and offering guidance on - how this specialist form of music theatre is created. It, in turn, acts as a means of defining an art form that has to date been left to lurk in the shadows of musical theatre; a subset with its own distinctive culture of performer, maker and audience, but as yet no formal recognition as a specialism in its own right. The actor-musician show is multifarious and as such this book targets those interested in mainstream commercial work, as well as alternative and avant-garde theatre practice. The book draws together expertise from a range of disciplines with contributions from many of the leading figures in this field, including performers, directors, teachers, MDs, producers and writers. It also features a foreword by theatre director John Doyle.
