Afrofuturism and Black Sound Studies: Culture, Technology, and Things to Come - Palgrave Studies in Sound (Hardback)Erik Steinskog (author)
- We can order this
The sounds of Afrofuturism are deeply embedded in the speculative - demonstrated in mythmaking - in frameworks for songs and compositions, in the personas of the artists, and in how the sounds are produced. In highlighting the place of music within the lived experiences of African Americans, the author analyses how the perspectives of Black Sound Studies complement and overlap with the discussion of sonic Afrofuturism. Focusing upon blackness, technology, and sound, this unique text offers key insights in how music partakes in imagining and constructing the future.
This innovative volume will appeal to students and scholars of sound studies, musicology and African American studies.
