Research in the area of recorded music is becoming increasingly diverse. Contributions from a variety of fields, including music performance, composition and production, cultural studies and philosophy, are drawn together here, for the contrasting perspectives they bring to a range of music genres. Discourses in jazz, ethnomusicology and popular music - whose histories and practices have evolved principally from recordings - are presented alongside those of Western classical music, where analysis of recordings is a relatively recent development. Different methodologies have evolved in each of these subdisciplines where recordings have been contextualised variously as tools, texts, or processes, reflective of social practices. This book promotes the sharing of such differences of approach. Attitudes of performers are considered alongside developments in technology, changing listening practices, and social contexts, to explore the ways in which recordings influence the study of music performance and the nature of musical experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Recorded Music is very well conceived and makes a unique contribution to the field. Moreover, it is expertly written and impeccably edited, and arguably belongs in every music library.' The Journal of Music and Meaning
'The polyphony of perspectives presented here is likely to generate a good deal of interesting discussion among graduate students, whilst the accessibility and concise nature of the chapters as individual accounts makes this a very useful tool for teachers of undergraduate courses.' British Journal of Music Education
