Electronica, Dance and Club Music Hardback

Edited by Mark J. Butler

Part of the The Library of Essays on Popular Music series


Discos, clubs and raves have been focal points for the development of new and distinctive musical and cultural practices over the past four decades.

This volume presents the rich array of scholarship that has sprung up in response.

Cutting-edge perspectives from a broad range of academic disciplines reveal the complex questions provoked by this musical tradition. Issues considered include aesthetics; agency; 'the body' in dance, movement, and space; composition; identity (including gender, sexuality, race, and other constructs); musical design; place; pleasure; policing and moral panics; production techniques such as sampling; spirituality and religion; sub-cultural affiliations and distinctions; and technology.

The essays are contributed by an international group of scholars and cover a geographically and culturally diverse array of musical scenes.
