Coughing and Clapping: Investigating Audience Experience explores
the processes and experiences of attending live music events from
the initial decision to attend through to audience responses and
memories of a performance after it has happened. The book brings
together international researchers who consider the experience of
being an audience member from a range of theoretical and empirical
perspectives. Whether enjoying a drink at a jazz gig, tweeting at a
pop concert or suppressing a cough at a classical recital, audience
experience is affected by motivation, performance quality, social
atmosphere and group and personal identity. Drawing on the
implications of these experiences and attitudes, the authors
consider the question of what makes an audience, and argue
convincingly for the practical and academic value of that question.
