What People are Saying About This

Gage Averill

“After Music and Technoculture, scholars will have no excuse to treat music technology as neutral or impartial or as anything less than a powerful transformation of consciousness, musical meaning, and value. This volume will shape research paradigms over the coming decades.”

Simon Frith

“This book sets out to make technology an issue for ethnomusicology, but its value lies in the variety of ethno approaches it brings to technology. Detail, surprise, and the pleasure of scholarship—this is musicology of society at its best."
