Description : This book explores the ways in which Western-derived music connects with globalization, hybridity, consumerism and the flow of cultures. Both as local terrain and as global crossroads, cities remain fascinating spaces of cultural contestation and meaning-making via the composing, playing, recording and consumption of popular music.

Description : This book draws from a rich history of scholarship about the relations between music and cities, and the global flows between music and urban experience. The contributions in this collection comment on the global city as a nexus of moving people, changing places, and shifting social relations, asking what popular music can tell us about cities, and vice versa. Since the publication of the first Sounds and the City volume, various movements, changes and shifts have amplified debates about globalization. From the waves of people migrating to Europe from the Syrian civil war and other conflict zones, to the 2016 “Brexit” vote to leave the European Union and American presidential election of Donald Trump. These, and other events, appear to have exposed an anti-globalist retreat toward isolationism and a backlash against multiculturalism that has been termed “post-globalization.” Amidst this, what of popular music? Does music offer renewed spaces and avenues for public protest, for collective action and resistance? What can the diverse​​ histories, hybridities, and legacies of popular music tell us about the ever-changing relations of people and cities?

Description : This anthology addresses the modern musical culture of interwar Osaka and its surrounding Hanshin region. Modernity as experienced in this locale, with its particular historical, geographic and demographic character, and its established traditions of music and performance, gave rise to configurations of the new, the traditional and the hybrid that were distinct from their Tokyo counterparts. The Taisho and early Showa periods, from 1912 to the early 1940s, saw profound changes in Japanese musical life. Consumption of both traditional Japanese and Western music was transformed as public concert performances, music journalism, and music marketing permeated daily life. The new bourgeoisie saw Western music, particularly the piano and its repertoire, as the symbol of a desirable and increasingly affordable modernity. Orchestras and opera troupes were established, which in turn created a need for professional conductors, and both jazz and a range of hybrid popular music styles became viable bases for musical livelihood. Recording technology proliferated; by the early 1930s, record players and SP discs were no longer luxury commodities, radio broadcasts reached all levels of society, and ’talkies’ with music soundtracks were avidly consumed. With the perceived need for music that suited 'modern life', the seeds for the pre-eminent position of Euro-American music in post-Second-World war Japan were sown. At the same time many indigenous musical genres continued to thrive, but were hardly immune to the effects of modernization; in exploring new musical media and techniques drawn from Western music, performer-composers initiated profound changes in composition and performance practice within traditional genres. This volume is the first to draw together research on the interwar musical culture of the Osaka region and addresses comprehensively both Western and non-Western musical practices and genres, questions the common perception of their being wholly separate domains

Description : Urbanization leads to structural changes to habitats and introduction of anthropogenic noise, both of which can interfere with avian communication. While studies suggest that birds can adjust their vocal behaviour in response to urban noise, the relative effects of urban habitat structure vs. noise on avian communication are not well understood. Further, understanding which species can adjust to noise and the mechanisms they use to achieve this can help conservation efforts predict which species will be most negatively affected by increasing urbanization. Species that possess certain vocal attributes (e.g., repertoires or the ability to learn new songs types) may be more or less able to adjust to urban noise. Here, I investigate how two closely related species (mountain chickadees Poecile gambeli and black-capped chickadees Poecile atricapillus) adjust their vocalizations in response to noise. I look at relative effects of habitat structure and noise on signal transmission and transfer, how each species adjusts vocalizations in response to urbanization and noise (both naturally occurring and experimental), and whether these adjustments actually improve audibility in noise. I found that urban noise affects signal transmission and transfer more than habitat urbanization (Chapter 2), and both species adjust their vocalizations to noise by using mechanisms related to their natural vocalizing behaviour. Mountain chickadees change the proportion of time they spend singing vs. calling and spectrally adjust their songs to emphasize higher frequencies (Chapter 3). In contrast, black-capped chickadees use their natural pitch-shifting abilities to selectively sing higher-frequency songs in noisy conditions (Chapter 4). I also found evidence that these adjustments may improve audibility in noise. Among mountain chickadees, focal males from quiet areas responded more aggressively to playbacks of urban than rural songs when embedded in experimental noise (Chapter 5). Among black-capped chickadees, focal males responded more.

Description : Metrospiritual: The Geography of Church Planting is about church planting in the city. There is an outpouring of new expressions of church being started throughout metro areas across North America. Where are these new churches being started? Maybe a more subterranean question is, "Why"? Why are churches being started where they are and why is there is a bias towards one part of the city and an overall neglect of other parts? Metrospiritual explores these questions and more as it builds off of recent research and surveys of hundreds of church planters in seven large cities in the United States and Canada. There is a deeper look at pivotal issues such as gentrification, the Creative Class, community transformation, urban renewal, and the role new churches play in all of these.

Description : Traffic, music, language and nature help to create unique soundscapes that are essential to the place-based character of each city. Taking into account both the urban soundscape and the impacts of sound on the urban dweller, this book examines sound not as a by-product of urban life, but as a fundamental part of the urban experience that is crucial to understanding the city´s sense of place. Illustrated by case studies from Europe and North America, these range from on-site measurements to the construction of audio tours for local tourism, from media analysis of popular culture audio drama to sound-identity and city branding, and from the classification of noise in city planning to a consideration of the complex relationship between sacred sound and the creation of a sense of place. Taking a social geographic perspective, the book focuses on the effects of sounds on the individual and how they influence the ways s/he engages the city as place, especially in their daily routines. In doing so, it uncovers the socio-scientific potential of sound in the urban environment, based on the understanding that sound cannot and must not be seen as detached from the urban landscape, but rather as a constituting element. Sound exists not only ‘within the city’: it ‘is’ the city.

Description : From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs “…sweet, crisp and juicy.”—Elin Hilderbrand “A powerful story of love, loss, hope and redemption.”—Kirkus, Starred Review Tess Delaney makes a living restoring stolen treasures to their owners. People like Annelise Winther, who has just been reunited with her mother’s long gone necklace, worth a sum that could change her life. To Annelise, whose family was torn apart during WWII, the necklace represents her history, and the value is in its memories. But Tess’s own history is filled with gaps: a father she never met, a mother who spent more time traveling than with her daughter. Then the enigmatic Dominic Rossi arrives on her San Francisco doorstep with the news that the grandfather she never knew is in a coma and that she’s destined to inherit half of his apple orchard estate called Bella Vista. The rest is willed to Isabel Johansen, the half-sister she didn’t know she had. With Dominic and Isabel by her side, Tess discovers world where family comes first and the roots of history run deep. A place where falling in love is not only possible, but inevitable. And in a season filled with new experiences, Tess begins to see the truth in something Annelise once told her: if you don’t believe memories are worth more than money, then perhaps you’ve not made the right kind of memories. Wiggs deftly weaves a narrative that takes the reader from present day California to Denmark during WWII to tell a story of family ties both old and new—and the moments that connect our hearts.

Description : Reclaiming the Archive: Feminism and Film History brings together a diverse group of international feminist scholars to examine the intersections of feminism, history, and feminist theory in film. Editor Vicki Callahan has assembled essays that reflect a range of methodological approaches—including archival work, visual culture, reception studies, biography, ethno-historical studies, historiography, and textual analysis—by a diverse group of film and media studies scholars to prove that feminist theory, film history, and social practice are inevitably and productively intertwined. Essays in Reclaiming the Archive investigate the different models available in feminist film history and how those feminist strategies might serve as paradigmatic for other sites of feminist intervention. Chapters have an international focus and range chronologically from early cinema to post-feminist texts, organized around the key areas of reception, stars, and authorship. A final section examines the very definitions of feminism (post-feminism), cinema (transmedia), and archives (virtual and online) in place today. The essays in Reclaiming the Archive prove that a significant heritage of film studies lies in the study of feminism in film and feminist film theory. Scholars of film history and feminist studies will appreciate the breadth of work in this volume.

Description : Cast your mind back to the last time a sound affected you. Perhaps birdsong that set a positive tone for your day, a child's laughter that lifted your mood or a favourite song that raised your energy. Sound has the power to make our spirits soar but how does it do this? The aim of this book is to demystify this intriguing subject, exploring how and why we respond to sound in the way we do, and reminding us that the innate knowledge for using sound to bolster our everyday lives already lies within us. After an insightful introduction about why the subject of Sound Healing is so worth delving into, each chapter then addresses a key question: What is sound and how do we hear it? including the difference between sound and music, and scientific explanations of factors such as sound waves, frequency, pitch, volume and the wonders of the human hearing mechanism. How does sound healing work? How did our ancestors use sound for health and well-being? Who is sound healing for and what are its many benefits? What does it involve? including an exploration of the different instruments that this can entail. How can we bring sound healing into our daily lives? And, finally, can sound work transform our consciousness? As such, this book brings readers on an exploratory journey through the world of sound healing, uncovering its immense therapeutic power, and showing readers how to tap into this power for the purposes of personal transformation, so that we can all lead more authentic, connected, contented lives.
