9780415170321: Discographies: Dance, Music, Culture and the Politics of Sound

Experiencing disco, hip hop, house, techno, drum 'n' bass and garage, Discographies plots a course through the transatlantic dance scene of the last last twenty-five years. It discusses the problems posed by contemporary dance culture of both academic and cultural study and finds these origins in the history of opposition to music as a source of sensory pleasure.
Discussing such issues as technology, club space. drugs, the musical body, gender, sexuality and pleasure, Discographies explores the ecstatic experiences at the heart of contemporary dance culture. It suggests why politicians and agencies as diverse as the independent music press and public broadcasting should be so hostile to this cultural phenomenon.

Review:

"In this fascinating study of dance music's formal, aesthetic and political properties, Jeremy Gilbert and Ewan Pearson team up to provide an authentic account of dance music. This is essential reading for anyone who considers dance music their lifestyle of choice."
-"URB Magazine
"Gilbert and Pearson provide a fascinating, complex, and well-written analysis...the chapters on gender and sexuality and on technology are superb...it is sophisticated and important. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."
-"Choice, April 2000
"This is a lucid, informative, engagingly written and stimulating work. It admirably covers a variety of different theoretical issues and takes off from dance to raise all sorts of questions about the treatment of music in cultural studies."
-Simon Frith, University of Stirling
..."contemporary, committed and compelling."
-Will Straw, McGill University
