Summary
"This eighth volume of the Artefacts series explores how material culture has affected music and sound. Presented are a collection of essays exploring technological innovations and their effects on musical culture. Contributors include composers, performers, musicologists, and scientists, providing diverse insights into the nature of music. With a foreword by British producer Brian Eno, Material Culture and Electronic Sound examines what has happened as a result of technology and music crossing paths."--Page 4 of cover.
