about this item

Music Moves. While the volume’s main title suggests a rather unambiguous stand towards the manifold possible relations between music and movement, its various chapters each nuance this seemingly univocal articulation. Rather than providing the reader with an all-inclusive theory on movement that is simply mapped onto the manifold complex musical dynamics the volume attends to, each chapter explores these composite dynamics in and on their own terms. Besides a clear but diverse focus on questions of music and movement, the individual chapters have common conceptual, methodological, and theoretical ground. Issues of central concern for musicology (here understood in its most inclusive sense), such as questions of power, musical meaning, and identity construction underlie most of its chapters. Three uniting concepts, which are of crucial importance for debates within musicology and cultural studies, emerge most prominently from, frame, and connect the individual papers: relation, knowledge, and transformation. Due to its comprehensive geographical, musical, and theoretical range, the approximations of music and movement offered within the volume explore issues of relevance to musicology, anthropology, critical theory, philosophy, post-colonial theory, and cultural studies.
