Musical Recordings in Culture
Study Day at Royal Holloway, University of London, sponsored by the Society for Music Analysis
Music Department, Wettons Terrace, Egham - Saturday, 30 October 2004
Hosted by the newly established AHRC Research Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music (CHARM) and sponsored by the SMA, this study day focussed on the contexts within which musical performances are represented, and the motivations underlying such representations. The aim: to contribute to an understanding of the cultural work accomplished by the technologies of recording—an aim which is equally relevant to the study of 'art', popular, and world musics.
