In this talk Nick Crossley will outline the central thesis of his book, 'Connecting Sounds', before drilling down to discuss the detail of a number of its empirical sections. Music, Crossley contends, is a form of social interaction in which sounds are made, framed and interrogated by the listener. Beyond the sonic dimension, moreover, these interactions are often economic, sometimes political and provide an occasion for the doing of identity, division and other aspects of the social world. Empirically the talk will discuss the differentiation of clusters of musical interactivity into relatively distinct 'worlds' and the role therein of social networks.
