This volume explores the role played by music in the formation and articulation of geographical imaginations – local, regional, national and global. Authors show how music’s facility to be recorded, stored and broadcast; to be performed and received in private and public; and to rouse intense emotional responses for individuals and groups make it a key force in the definition of a place. Covering rich and varied terrain – from Victorian England, to 1960s Los Angeles, to the offices of Sony and Time-Warner, and the landscapes of the American Depression – the book addresses such topics as the evolution of musical genres, the globalization of music production and marketing, and alternative and hybridized music scenes as sites of localized resistance.
