Description:

Where is the academic study of music today, and what paths should it take into the future? Should we be looking at how music relates to society and constructs meaning through it, rather than how it transcends the social? Can we ‘remix’ our discipline and attempt to address all musics on an equal basis, without splitting ourselves in advance into subgroups of ‘musicologists’, ‘theorists’, and ‘ethnomusicologists’? These are some of the crucial issues that Nicholas Cook has raised since he emerged in the 1990s as one of the UK’s leading and most widely-read voices in critical musicology. In this book, collaborators and former students of Cook pursue these questions, and others raised by his work––from notation, historiography, and performance to the place of music in multimedia forms such as virtual reality and video games, analysing both how it can bring people together and the ways in which it has failed to do so.

Acknowledgements:

We would like to thank Heidi Bishop and her team at Routledge; Nancy Moses at Apex; Sam Ridout for compiling the index, and the anonymous readers (along with a not-so-anonymous Freya Jarman) for their insightful comments. We especially thank Nick for his warm and wise mentoring of us and many other doctoral and post-doctoral students, and for his commitment to making the study of music a more open and vital endeavour.
