The Republic of Love - Cultural Intimacy in Turkish Popular Music (Paperback): Martin Stokes The Republic of Love - Cultural Intimacy in Turkish Popular Music (Paperback)
Martin Stokes
R799 Discovery Miles 7 990 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

At the heart of "The Republic of Love" are the voices of three musicians--queer nightclub star Zeki Muren, "arabesk" originator Orhan Gencebay, and pop diva Sezen Aksu--who collectively have dominated mass media in Turkey since the early 1950s. Their fame and ubiquity have made them national icons--but, Martin Stokes here contends, they do not represent the official version of Turkish identity propagated by anthems or flags; instead they evoke a much more intimate and ambivalent conception of Turkishness.
Using these three singers as a lens, Stokes examines Turkey's repressive politics and civil violence as well as its uncommonly vibrant public life in which music, art, literature, sports, and journalism have flourished. However, Stokes's primary concern is how Muren, Gencebay, and Aksu's music and careers can be understood in light of theories of cultural intimacy. In particular, he considers their contributions to the development of a Turkish concept of love, analyzing the ways these singers explore the private matters of intimacy, affection, and sentiment on the public stage.

Brenda - Story of an African queen is a pen picture of one of Africa's greatest singers. Compared with Billie Holliday and Nina Simone, Brenda's rise from the ghetto to continental superstar is a journey of luminous and troubled intensity. By the time of her death in May 2004, Brenda had been etched into the national consciousness. Her songs were emblematic of a country going through torment, then transition and seeking a balance. Her see-saw lifestyle mirrored a people who were also struggling to find meaning and identity. Fans loved and reviled her; lovers came and went; she was caring and cruel; but the talent, even when she was down and out, never deserted her - and South Africans love talent!

Sonic Flux - Sound, Art, and Metaphysics (Paperback): Christoph Cox Sonic Flux - Sound, Art, and Metaphysics (Paperback)
Christoph Cox
R526 R491 Discovery Miles 4 910 Save R35 (7%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

From Edison's invention of the phonograph through contemporary field recording and sound installation, artists have become attracted to those domains against which music has always defined itself: noise, silence, and environmental sound. Christoph Cox argues that these developments in the sonic arts are not only aesthetically but also philosophically significant, revealing sound to be a continuous material flow to which human expressions contribute but which precedes and exceeds those expressions. Cox shows how, over the course of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, philosophers and sonic artists have explored this "sonic flux." Through the philosophical analysis of works by John Cage, Maryanne Amacher, Max Neuhaus, Christian Marclay, and many others, Sonic Flux contributes to the development of a materialist metaphysics and poses a challenge to the prevailing positions in cultural theory, proposing a realist and materialist aesthetics able to account not only for sonic art but for artistic production in general.

A Change is Gonna Come chronicles more than forty years of black music: from the hopeful, angry refrains of the Freedom movement to the slick pop of Motown; from Woodstock and the 'Summer of Love' to Vietnam and the race riots; from disco inferno to the Million Man March. This is an insightful and riveting study which looks at the place black music occupies in social history, its battle for the desegregation of popular music and its contribution to social change outside the recording studio

The Limit (Paperback): Laureana Toledo The Limit (Paperback)
Laureana Toledo
R596 R559 Discovery Miles 5 590 Save R37 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"The Name of the Band is The Limit, From Mexico to Sheffield" was Laureana toledo's addition to Art Sheffield 05. The context of the event was "Spectator T," a fictitious art goer without exposure to contemporary aesthetics, and he idea was to present artworks that would challenge this person's preconceived ideas about art. Thus, Toledo created a cover band that sang songs by local Sheffield groups, and named it after the cult Sheffield nightclub, The Limit, which closed in 1992. The band was created in Mexico, with musicians from four of the best known bands in the Mexican rock scene 0 where is played one local concert, then came to Sheffield, where it played one local concert before disbanding. Like most of Toledo's work, "The Limit" appropriates and reinterprets a pre-existing entity. With this volume, Toledo continues to play with the idea of authorship by pirating an already iconic magazine layout - The Face - and turning it into a labyrinth of information that leaves the reader unsure if he of she is reading about music, a band's story, an artist, Mexico or even just pop culture. Contributor to this volume include Eduardo Abaroa, Frances Richard, Monica de la Torre, Gavin Wade, David Byrne, Catherine Lampert, Cuauhtemoc Medina, Pablo Vargas Lugo and Dr. Lakra.
