Steve Savage has written a very important book. He has revolutionized how music educators should think about what they are doing. Savage lays the ground work for "repurposing" music education in the university

Steve Savage has written a very important book. We live in a revolutionary time for universities. At least, it should be a revolutionary time. Savage lays the ground work for "repurposing" music education in the university. The "everybody knows" assumptions that composition and performance precede and inform reproduction of sound and consumption of sound are blown out of the intellectual water by Savage. The old hierarchy is out and the new "hot, flat, and crowded world of digital music is in. We ignore this change at our (the university's) peril.

InBytes and Backbeats, however, Steve Savage deploys an innovative combination of designed recording projects, ethnographic studies of contemporary music practice, and critical analysis to challenge many of these traditional attitudes about the creation and reception of music.

From Attali's ""cold social silence"" to Baudrillard's hallucinatory reality, reproduced music has long been the target of critical attack.

From Attali's "cold social silence" to Baudrillard's hallucinatory reality, reproduced music has long been the target of critical attack. In Bytes and Backbeats, however, Steve Savage deploys an innovative combination of designed recording projects, ethnographic studies of contemporary music practice, and critical analysis to challenge many of these traditional attitudes about the creation and reception of music. Savage adopts the notion of "repurposing" as central to understanding how every aspect of musical activity, from creation to reception, has been transformed, arguing that the tension within production between a naturalizing "art" and a self-conscious "artifice" reflects and feeds into our evolving notions of creativity, authenticity, and community.

At the core of the book are three original audio projects, drawing from rock & roll, jazz, and traditional African music, through which Savage is able to target areas of contemporary practice that are particularly significant in the cultural evolution of the musical experience. Each audio project includes a studio study providing context for the social and cultural analysis that follows. This work stems from Savage's experience as a professional recording engineer and record producer.

This is a great piece of work for the academic, however after buying the Kindle version, I find that there are no page numbers, only locations and percentages. This makes it pretty much impossible to cite as a reference source. My Kindle (ver 3) does do page numbers, but this book doesn't have them. At $50 for the Kindle version, you'd think it would at least allow me to cite it. So, academics beware.

However, it is well written, and has a lot of insightful views about digital culture and its effects upon the way we make and consume music. Highly recommend this book, though you might want to buy the hardcover version. I only gave it 3 stars because of A) the VERY high Kindle price and B) no page numbers available.

Being in New Zealand, the shipping just put it out of reach, so I settled on the Kindle version. I'll know better next time.

Steve Savage has written a very important book. He has revolutionized how music educators should think about what they are doing. We live in a revolutionary time for universities. At least, it should be a revolutionary time. Changes in the economy, both the recession and globalization; changes in the polity, both increased inequality and distrust of our institutions, make it essential that we rethink both how we are educating college students and what they are learning. Savage lays the ground work for "repurposing" music education in the university. The "everybody knows" assumptions that composition and performance precede and inform reproduction of sound and consumption of sound are blown out of the intellectual water by Savage. The old hierarchy is out and the new "hot, flat, and crowded world of digital music is in. We ignore this change at our (the university's) peril. Savage writes beautifully about how this change took place both in his own life and the lives of people who produce music. The book flows nicely between the personal and the more abstract issues that technological change have produced in the lives of people who make music and listen to it. He shows how the production and consumption of music have been fused in a new world that offers profound opportunities to democratize the music business and potentially disastrous consequences for the quality of music in the future. Savage is an optimist so he focuses on the potential for good in this technological revolution; but the darker side is also evident. I love this book and recommend it to any one who cares about music and the future of rock and roll.
