9780192880604: Performing Rites: Evaluating Popular Music
Críticas:

[Frith suggests that] since in the era of mass reproducibility all music is potentially popular music, talk about music is a key component of a popular aesthetic, and any music that can be heard particularly to recognize and encourage that talk becomes (a) pop music...If you agree with Frith that this process is wonderful in its circularity, then you must read "Performing Rites. If you think of such circularity as less than wonderful...you should still read Frith's book...for the frustrations--and consequently the arguments--it is likely to cause are mostly provocative and productive ones...Paramount among "Performing Rites' strengths is its synthesizing, connective work. Frith casts a wide interdisciplinary net across a number of fields--sociology, anthropology, ethnomusicology, musicology, literary studies, cultural history and studies, and philosophy--and succeeds in drawing out a number of useful and illuminating parallels and intersections.

Críticas:

Frith understands precisely what pop music is actually for, and thus has a right to write about it that few others share. ( Pete Townshend)

This is a good, and arguably a great book. ( Colin McCabe, New Statesman & Society)

quite simply one of the best books I've ever read about music ( BBC Music Magazine)

Pop music matters to Frith, and he gives one of the best accounts yet written of how and why this should be so ... a very necessary book. ( Peter Aspden, Financial Times)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Revised ed.. 230 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Who s better? Billie Holiday or P.J. Harvey? Blur or Oasis? Dylan or Keats? And how many friendships have ridden on the answer? Such questions aren t merely the stuff of fanzines and idle talk; they inform our most passionate arguments, distil our most deeply held values, make meaning of our ever-changing culture. In Performing Rites, one of the most influential writers on popular music asks what we talk about when we talk about music. What s good, what s bad? What s high, what s low? Why do such distinctions matter? Instead of dismissing emotional response and personal taste as inaccessible to the academic critic, Simon Frith takes these forms of engagement as his subject and discloses their place at the very centre of the aesthetics that structure our culture and colour our lives. Taking up hundreds of songs and writers, Frith insists on acts of evaluation of popular music as music. Ranging through and beyond the twentieth century, Performing Rites puts the Pet Shop Boys and Puccini, rhythm and lyric, voice and technology, into a dialogue about the undeniable impact of poplar aesthetics on our lives. How we nod our heads or tap our feet, grin or grimace or flip the dial; how we determine what s sublime and what s for real - these are part of the way we construct our social identities, and an essential response to the performance of all music. Frith argues that listening itself is a performance, both social gesture and bodily response. From how they are made to how they are received, popular songs appear here as not only meriting aesthetic judgements but also demanding them, and shaping our understanding of what all music means.
