Synopsis: Sound, Music, Affect features brand new essays that bring together the burgeoning developments in sound studies and affect studies.

The first section sets out key methodological and theoretical concerns, focussing on the relationships between affective models and sound. The second section deals with particular musical case studies, exploring how reference to affect theory might change or reshape some of the ways we are able to make sense of musical materials. The third section examines the politics and practice of sonic disruption: from the notion of noise as 'prophecy', to the appropriation of 'bad vibes' for pleasurable aesthetic and affective experiences. And the final section engages with some of the ways in which affect can help us understand the politics of chill, relaxation and intimacy as sonic encounters.

The result is a rich and multifaceted consideration of sound, music and the affective, from scholars with backgrounds in cultural theory, history, literary studies, media studies, architecture, philosophy and musicology.

Book Description Bloomsbury Academic, 2013. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: We all know how powerfully we can be moved by music. But we still find it hard to describe just how music affects us; it's so much easier to analyze its forms, or to speculate on what it means. The essays in this book combine affect theory with sonic cultural studies, in order to discuss the ways that we feel music, and the social and political consequences of such feelings.
