iTunes. Spotify. Pandora. With these brief words one can map the landscape of music today, but these arenandrsquo;t musicians, songs, or anything else actually musicalandmdash;they are products and brands. In this book, Timothy D. Taylor explores just how pervasively capitalism has shaped music over the last few decades. Examining changes in the production, distribution, and consumption of music, he offers an incisive critique of the music industryandrsquo;s shift in focus from creativity to profits, as well as stories of those who are laboring to find and make musical meaning in the shadows of the mainstream cultural industries.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

Taylor explores everything from the branding of musicians to the globalization of music to the emergence of digital technologies in music production and consumption. Drawing on interviews with industry insiders, musicians, and indie label workers, he traces both the constricting forces of bottom-line economics and the revolutionary emergence of the affordable home studio, the global internet, and the mp3 that have shaped music in different ways. A sophisticated analysis of how music is made, repurposed, advertised, sold, pirated, and consumed, Music and Capitalism is a must read for anyone who cares about what they are listening to, how, and why. and#160;and#160;

Synopsis:

From Tibetan Buddhist and Native American influences to Jamaican dancehall, rap, and bhangra of Apache Indian, this work examines the rise of "world music" and "world beat." It draws on a wide variety of sources, from popular culture, interviews, liner notes, the Internet and the music itself.

Synopsis:

From the Tibetan Buddhist and Native American influences in the music of Pauline Oliveros to the arresting blend of Jamaican dancehall, rap, and bhangra of Apache Indians, this groundbreaking work examines the rise of world music and world beat. Musicologist Timothy D. Taylor draws on a wide variety of sources, from popular culture, interviews, liner notes, the Internet and the music itself, charting an accessible path through the issues surrounding contemporary world music. Included in this volume are detailed discussions of such world musicians as the Kronos Quartet, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Youssou N'Dour, Peter Gabriel, Johnny Clegg, Angelique Kidjo, Sheila Chandra, Apache Indian, Zap Mama and a host of others.

Exploring the dynamics behind such collaborations as Paul Simon and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Taylor addresses the effects that these collaborations have on the music itself with particular emphasis on issues of authenticity and the expectations around it. In addition to looking at the ways western pop/rock appropriates the music from other cultures, he also demonstrates how these cross-cultural collaborations bring music and musicians from other cultures to a much wider audience as well as fashion new musics and identities through their innovative combinations of sounds and styles.

Global Pop offers a fascinating and timely survey of popular music and its impact on contemporary culture along with our ways of looking at and living in the world.

Synopsis:

Global Pop examines the rise of "world musics" and "world beat," and some of the musicians associated with these new genres such as Peter Gabriel, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Johnny Clegg. Drawing on a wide range of sources - academic, popular, cyber, interviews, and the music itself - Global Pop charts an accessible path through many of the issues and contradictions surrounding the contemporary movement of people and musics worldwide. Global Pop examines the range of discourses employed in and around world music, demonstrating how the central concept of authenticity is wielded by musicians, fans, and other listeners, and looks at some of these musics in detail, examining ways they are caught up in forms of domination and resistance. The book also explores how some cross-cultural collaborations may fashion new musics and identities through innovative combinations of sounds and styles.

Synopsis:

The aim of Music and Capitalism is to add to the small but now fast-growing number of works that have appeared in the twenty-first century on capitalism in an effort to restore it as an important, and, Tim Taylor would say, the most important, site of cultural analysis. Taylor has organized this book around concepts and cases that show how Euro-American capitalism works, and has worked, with respect to music. Some of these cases focus on moments when new communications or other technologies appear that altered peopleandrsquo;s relationship to music; various recording and playback devices such as digital recording and playback; and others that address questions of marketing and advertising, for these practices are potent in inflecting or even assigning meanings to commodities of all kinds.

Taylor takes up where Adornoandrsquo;s work left off by studying music in todayandrsquo;s andldquo;new capitalism,andrdquo; which has been powerfully shaped by neoliberal ideologies and policies. Taylor focuses on the new modes of the production and consumption of music, new forms of the marketing of music and musicians, and changes in the cultural industries. These and other themes are treated in this synthetic work that draws on the empirical research Taylor has conducted for nearly two decades on music and technology, the history of broadcast music, the use of music in advertising, and the globalization of popular musics.and#160; It promises to be of interest to anyone with a stake in music.
