Memory, Space, Sound presents a collection of essays from scholars in a range of disciplines that together explore the social, spatial, and temporal contexts that shape different forms of music and sonic practice. The contributors deploy different theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches from musicology, ethnomusicology, popular music studies, cultural history, media studies, and cultural studies as they analyze an array of examples, including live performances, music festivals, audiovisual material, and much more.
