9780415978057: Queering the Popular Pitch

Queering the Popular Pitch is a new collection of 19 essays that situate queering within the discourse of sex and sexuality in relation to popular music. This investigation addresses the changing debates within gay, lesbian and queer discourse in relation to the dissemination of musical texts -performance, cultural production and sexual meaning - situating music within the broader patterns of culture that it both mirrors and actively reproduces.

The collection is divided into four parts:
queering borders

queer spaces

hidden histories

queer thoughts, mixed media.

Queering the Popular Pitch will appeal to students of popular music, Gay and Lesbian studies. With case studies and essays by leading popular music scholars it provides insightful discourse in a growing field of musicological research.

Review:

"Whether you enjoy flamenco, salsa, tango or township tunes, Global Minstrels will extend and update your musical knowledge."--The City Paper, Nashville

 

"World Music has made ethnomusicologists of us all, attempting to understand where music comes from and what it means. Elijah Wald, musician, author, and former world music critic from the Boston Globe, offers some answers of his own through the voices of over 75 musicians profiled in this new collection."--Dirty Linen

 

"Perhaps the most significant contribution of Global Minstrels is the way it helps to rehumanize the discussion of world music by allowing the voices of the artists themselves...to be heard above the din of academic debate."--Ethnomusicology
