The groundbreaking Audio tradition: Readings in smooth Music (Continuum; September 2004; paperback unique) maps the aural and discursive terrain of leading edge song this present day. instead of supplying a heritage of latest track, Audio tradition strains the family tree of present musical practices and theoretical issues, drawing traces of connection among fresh musical creation and previous moments of sonic experimentation. It goals to foreground a few of the rewirings of musical composition and function that experience taken position long ago few many years and to supply a serious and theoretical language for this new audio culture.

This new and multiplied version of the Audio Culture includes twenty-five extra essays, together with 4 newly-commissioned items. Taken as a complete, the booklet explores the interconnections between such varieties as minimalism, indeterminacy, musique concrète, unfastened improvisation, experimental song, avant-rock, dub reggae, ambient song, hip hop, and techno through writings by way of philosophers, cultural theorists, and composers. rather than concentrating on a few "crossover" among "high artwork" and "popular culture," Audio tradition takes some of these musics as experimental practices on par with, and associated with, each other. whereas cultural reports has tended to examine song (primarily renowned track) from a sociological point of view, the fear here's philosophical, musical, and historical.

Audio Culture contains writing via one of the most very important musical thinkers of the previous half-century, between them John Cage, Brian Eno, Ornette Coleman, Pauline Oliveros, Maryanne Amacher, Glenn Gould, Umberto Eco, Jacques Attali, Simon Reynolds, Eliane Radigue, David Toop, John Zorn, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and so on. every one essay has its personal brief advent, aiding the reader to put the essay inside musical, old, and conceptual contexts, and the quantity concludes with a thesaurus, a timeline, and an intensive discography.
