Dark Side of the Tune: Popular Music and Violence
Language: English | PDF | ISBN-10: 1409400492 | 2009 | 254 pages | 5 MB

Written against the academically dominant but simplistic romanticization of popular music as a positive force, this book focuses on the 'dark side' of the subject. It is a pioneering examination of the ways in which popular music has been deployed in association with violence, ranging from what appears to be an incidental relationship, to one in which music is explicitly applied as an instrument of violence. A preliminary overview of the physiological and cognitive foundations of sounding/hearing which are distinctive within the sensorium, discloses in particular their potential for organic and psychic violence.

Listening to Popular Music: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Led Zeppelin (repost)

Theodore Gracyk, "Listening to Popular Music: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Led Zeppelin"
2007-05-02 | ISBN: 0472069837, 0472099833 | 264 pages | PDF | 13 MB

It has long been assumed that people who prefer Led Zeppelin to Mozart live aesthetically impoverished lives. But why? In Listening to Popular Music, award-winning popular music scholar Theodore Gracyk argues that aesthetic value is just as important in popular listening as it is with “serious” music. And we don’t have to treat popular music as art in order to recognize its worth. Aesthetic values are realized differently in different musical styles, and each requires listening skills that people must learn.
