New musical figurations : Anthony Braxton's cultural critique by Ronald M Radano( )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Musical Figurations exemplifies a dramatically new way of configuring jazz music and history. By relating biography to the cultural and musical contours of contemporary American life, Ronald M. Radano observes jazz practice as part of the complex interweaving of postmodern culturea culture that has eroded conventional categories defining jazz and the jazz musician. Radano accomplishes all this by analyzing the creative life of Anthony Braxton, one of the most emblematic figures of this cultural crisis. Born in 1945, Braxton is not only a virtuoso jazz saxophonist but an innovative theoret

Music and the racial imagination( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A spectre lurks in the house of music, and it goes by the name of race", write Ronald Radano and Philip Bohlman in their introduction. Yet the intimate relationship between race and music has rarely been examined by contemporary scholars, most of whom have abandoned it for more enlightened notions of ethnicity and culture. Here, a distinguished group of contributors confront the issue head on. Representing an unusually broad range of academic disciplines and geographic regions, they critically examine how the imagination of race has influenced musical production, reception and scholarly analysis, even as they reject the objectivity of the concept itself. Each essay follows the lead of the substantial introduction, which reviews the history of race in European and American, non-Western and global musics, placing it within the contexts of the colonial experience and the more recent formation of "world music". Offering a bold, new revisionist agenda for musicology in a postmodern, postcolonial world, this book should appeal to students of culture and race across the humanities and social sciences." -- Blackwells website

The section also discusses Braxton's spatial conception of sound and his mystical beliefs, showing how they influenced his notations, his non-verbal titles, and his understanding of musical meaning

Negro Soy Yo : Hip Hop and Raced Citizenship in Neoliberal Cuba, Refiguring American Music by Marc D Perry( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Negro Soy Yo Marc D. Perry explores Cuba?s hip hop movement as a window into the racial complexities of the island?s ongoing transition from revolutionary socialism toward free-market capitalism. Centering on the music and lives of black-identified raperos (rappers), Perry examines the ways these young artists craft notions of black Cuban identity and racial citizenship, along with calls for racial justice, at the fraught confluence of growing Afro-Cuban marginalization and long held perceptions of Cuba as a non-racial nation. Situating hip hop within a long history of Cuban racial politics, Perry discusses the artistic and cultural exchanges between raperos and North American rappers and activists, and their relationships with older Afro-Cuban intellectuals and African American political exiles. He also examines critiques of Cuban patriarchy by female raperos, the competing rise of reggaet?n, as well as state efforts to incorporate hip hop into its cultural institutions. At this pivotal moment of Cuban-U.S. relations, Perry's analysis illuminates the evolving dynamics of race, agency and neoliberal transformation amid a Cuba in historic flux.
