Fractured scenes : underground music-making in Hong Kong and East Asia by Damien Charrieras( )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fractured Scenes is the first extensive academic account of music and sound art practices that fall outside of the scope of mainstream music in Hong Kong. It combines academic essays with original interviews conducted with prominent Hong Kong underground/independent musicians and sound artists as well as first hand-accounts by key local scene actors in order to survey genres such as experimental/noise music, deconstructed electronic music, indie-pop, punk, garage rock, sound art and DIY computer music (among others). It examines these Hong Kong underground music practices in relief with specific case studies in Mainland China and Japan to begin re-defining the notion of a musical underground in the context of contemporary Hong Kong

Distribution ambiances magnétiques etcetera and constellation records : DIY record labels and the Montreal experimental music scene by François Mouillot( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dissertation examines the role of small record labels in the Montreal experimental music scene. Drawing and expanding on Will Straw's conception of scene, I argue that independent record labels are crucial vectors of production and distribution that are energizers and adapters of the activities inherent to cultural scenes. Developing the notion that cultural scenes are, in one sense, matrixes of networks and infrastructures, I also examine how record labels interact with other scenic actors - such as music venues and musical instruments - that at times offer continuation of and unexpected bridges between the activities of labels. This dissertation is articulated around the cases of two record labels: Distribution Ambiances Magnétiques Etcetera (DAME), a small company that focuses primarily on the Musique actuelle musical movement, and Constellation Records, a label that has long promoted experimental popular music stemming out of the city's Anglophone communities. Each case considers the labels' relationship to the cultural identity of Montreal, and leads into analyses of the Casa del Popolo concert venue and of specific practices of the saxophone as 'bridges' between the labels' aesthetics and activities. I argue that, in the digital era, the function of small independent labels like the ones examined in this dissertation is challenged by the rise a new set of practices and technological tools, but that these structures must be considered as important generators of knowledge about the urban cultural scenes they participate in. Through this knowledge, labels such as DAME and Constellation Records have contributed to the construction of Montreal's contemporary cultural identity and to the city's representation locally and internationally."--
