Abstract:

This volume is subdivided into four principal parts. The first part, 'Performers and Performing' contains entries on types of performing groups and individuals as well as on a wide variety of performance techniques. The second part, 'Musical Production and Transmission' contains entries on different kinds of personnel and functions as well as on interpretive and technological processes and technologies. The third part, 'Musical Instruments' contains the volume's entries on musical instruments, not only those that have played a major role in the history of popular music but also those that, at first blush, might seem to have had a less intimate relation with that history. The final part, 'Musical Form and Practise' covers aspects of musical form as well as other dimensions of music and musical practice such as arrangement, lyrics and stage acts.
