Sound Tracks : Popular Music Identity and Place, Paperback / softback Book

Sound Tracks : Popular Music Identity and Place Paperback / softback

Part of the Critical Geographies series


Sound Tracks is the first comprehensive book on the new geography of popular music, examining the complex links between places, music and cultural identities.

It provides an interdisciplinary perspective on local, national and global scenes, from the 'Mersey' and 'Icelandic' sounds to 'world music', and explores the diverse meanings of music in a range of regional contexts. In a world of intensified globalisation, links between space, music and identity are increasingly tenuous, yet places give credibility to music, not least in the 'country', and music is commonly linked to place, as a stake to originality, a claim to tradition and as a marketing device.

This book develops new perspectives on these relationships and how they are situated within cultural and geographical thought.
