Performing rites : on the value of popular music by Simon Frith( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Performing Rites, one of the most influential writers on popular music asks what we talk about when we talk about music. What's good, what's bad? What's high, what's low? Why do such distinctions matter? Instead of dismissing emotional response and personal taste as inaccessible to the academic critic, Simon Frith takes these forms of engagement as his subject - and discloses their place at the very center of the aesthetics that structure our culture and color our lives. Taking up hundreds of songs and writers, Frith insists on acts of evaluation of popular music as music. Ranging through and beyond the twentieth century, Performing Rites puts the Pet Shop Boys and Puccini, rhythm and lyric, voice and technology, into a dialogue about the undeniable impact of popular aesthetics on our lives

This companion presents a kaleidoscopic view of the world of pop and rock. Expert writers follow the rise of fifteen global stars from Elvis to Public Enemy, Nirvana to the Spice Girls. They chart the changing patterns in production and consumption, and they trace the way new technologies have changed the sounds and practices of pop. Alive to areas of current debate, they also focus on issues such as race and ethnicity, politics, gender and globalization. The anthology contains profiles of major figures from the pop and rock field. But at the heart of this companion is the music itself--rock, pop, black music, dance music, world music--its impact, its power and its pleasures [Publisher description]
Music and copyright by Lee Marshall( Book )

33 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did you know that in Italian law a translator can claim rights income from the original song, whatever its language? Or that in the next thirty years we can expect to see multiple editions of classic Beatles, Presley and Dylan tracks as the original recordings go out of copyright? This book takes a closer look at the state of intellectual property in the age of digital technology and globalisation. It shows how copyright law determines the structure of the international music business today and actually works against the interests of musical creativity. Written by music researchers and journalists, it highlights problems and solutions for the music industry and lawyers in Britain, the USA, Japan, Germany, Ghana and Canada amongst other countries, and analyses the cultural issues at work in new legislation
