  • Springer handbook of systematic musicology / Rolf Bader (ed.)

  • Hip hop divas / editors of Vibe
    ML 3531 H57 2001
    It s time to stand up, take notice, and give props to the women who have made their mark on hip hop culture. Although superstars like Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, and TLC are some of the most popular entertainers in the world today each having sold some 20 million albums apiece the dramatic rise of women to the top of the hip hop industry has never been chronicled before. The revolution was decades in the making, with the female pioneers fighting for a place in the hip hop boy s club, confronting sexist attitudes, and grabbing their piece of the commercial pie while taking hip hop to new creative heights. Now VIBE, the preeminent hip hop magazine, celebrates this pop culture explosion with a book of thoughtful essays, stunning photographs, and informative timelines and sidebars.

  • Hip hop matters : politics, pop culture, and the struggle for the soul of a movement / S. Craig Watkins
    ML 3531 W38 2005
    Avoiding the easy definitions and caricatures that tend to celebrate or condemn the "hip hop generation," Hip Hop Matters focuses on fierce and far-reaching battles being waged in politics, pop culture, and academe to assert control over the movement. At stake, Watkins argues, is the impact hip hop has on the lives of the young people who live and breathe the culture. He presents incisive analysis of the corporate takeover of hip hop and the rampant misogyny that undermines the movement's progressive claims. Ultimately, we see how hip hop struggles reverberate in the larger world: global media consolidation; racial and demographic flux; generational cleavages; the reinvention of the pop music industry; and the ongoing struggle to enrich the lives of ordinary youth.

  • Electronic music and musique concrète / F.C. Judd
    ML 3817 J8 2013

    Frederick Charles Judd (1914-1992) was a pioneer of British electronic music, composing and recording at his home studio.

    'Electronic Music and Musique ConcrEte', originally published in 1961, was one of the earliest books to introduce to a popular audience a form of music then in its infancy. From the late 1950s into the 1960s Judd toured Britain giving lectures and demonstrations of techniques and equipment, often in the company of his friend and fellow innovator Daphne Oram. Judd's biggest commercial success as a musician came in 1963 with Space Patrol, the first British TV series to feature an all-electronic score.

    A second book by Judd, 'Electronics In Music' (1972), is also published by Foruli Classics.

  • Rocking the boat : migration and race in contemporary Spanish music / Silvia Bermúdez
    ML 3498 B47 2018

    Silvia Bermúdez's fascinating study reveals how Spanish popular music, produced between 1980 and 2013, was the first cultural site to engage in critical debate about ethnicity and race in relation to the immigration patterns that have been changing the social landscape of Spanish society since the late 1970s.

    In Rocking the Boat , Bermúdez examines the lyrics of songs by both renowned and up and coming artists to illuminate how these new migrants challenged Spain's notions of homogeneity, boundaries, accommodation, and incorporation. Bermúdez observes that immigration has had such a significant influence on Spanish society that the tattered boats, seen to this day on the shores of Spain and throughout the Mediterranean Sea, have become inverted emblems of the ships that were once symbols of great power and economic development. Rocking the Boat is a nuanced account of how popular urban music shaped the discourse on immigration, transnational migrants, and racialization in Spain's new social landscape.
