ELECTRONICA, DANCE AND CLUB MUSIC
Category: Essay on music
Discos, clubs and raves have been focal points for the development of new and distinctive musical and cultural practices over the past four decades. This volume presents the rich array of scholarship that has sprung up in response. Perspectives from a broad range of academic disciplines reveal the complex questions provoked by this musical tradition. Issues considered include aesthetics; agency; 'the body' in dance, movement, and space; composition; identity; musical design; place; pleasure; policing and moral panics; production techniques; spirituality and religion; sub-cultural affiliations and distinctions; and technology.
