What in the World is Music? investigates the nature and meaning of music through its widely shared uses and purposes, providing students with strong points of connection to the ways it affects their own lives. The text explores the ways humans experience and organize sound, and the contexts in which music takes place. Examining how people use music deepens students' insight both into its nature and the nature of those who make it, enjoy it, move to it, and live surrounded by it. What in the World is Music? takes a global approach informed by both musicological and ethnomusicological modes of inquiry, and combines musical examples and concepts from around the world including the traditional Western canon. What in the World is Music? is divided into four parts that highlight similarities across cultures and examine shared musical practices. Unit 1: The Foundations of Music presents an inquiry-guided approach to understanding and engaging with music as a universal form of human expression, and explores the elements, origins, and functions of music from a global perspective. Unit 2: Music and Identity examines how music operates in the shaping, negotiating, and projecting of human identity. The discussion is organized around four broad conceptual frames: the individual, the group, hybridity, and conflict. Unit 3: Music and the Sacred considers how music is used in religious practices throughout the world: as a medium for the chanting of sacred texts and for communal singing, as a vehicle for religious experience, and as a demarcator of ritual space and time. Unit 4: Music and Social Life explores a variety of narrative and theatrical forms, and demonstrates how music symbolizes characters and situations, heightens emotion, and connects stories to broader cultural values and traditions. The unit also investigates music's relationships to sound recording and cinema technologies, and its contributions to nightlife, festivals, and sporting events. The package includes one-y

It establishes a background on the time span—1725 to 1815—offering a context for the music made during one of the more vibrant periods of achievement in history.

This shorter version of the best-selling WORLDS OF MUSIC provides much of the authoritative coverage of the comprehensive version in a format that’s accessible to students without any background or training in music. Using a case-study approach, the text presents in-depth explorations of music of several cultures from around the world. The authors, all ethnomusicologists working in their fields of expertise, base their discussions of music-cultures on their own fieldwork, and give students a true sense of both the music and culture that created it. General editor, Jeff Todd Titon, has written the text’s opening chapter that introduces students to ethnomusicology and relates each chapter’s music heard on the accompanying CDs to the fundamentals of music in a worldwide context. The text concludes with a chapter that invites students to participate by undertaking a fieldwork research project that increases a student’s understanding of music in daily life. The supplementary three-CD set works hand in hand with the authors’ prose, providing students with access to a wide range of music-cultures and include authentic recordings from the authors’ fieldwork. Leading off is the long-standing jewel in the WORLDS OF MUSIC crown -- James Koetting’s magnificent recording of postal workers canceling stamps at the University of Ghana post office. A Western-sounding hymn tune performed against African rhythms, this piece, more that any other, lets the student hear contrasting music-cultures.

In music studies, Timothy D. Taylor is known for his insightful essays on music, globalization, and capitalism. Music in the World is a collection of some of Taylor’s most recent writings—essays concerned with questions about music in capitalist cultures, covering a historical span that begins in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and continues to the present. These essays look at shifts in the production, dissemination, advertising, and consumption of music from the industrial capitalism of the nineteenth century to the globalized neoliberal capitalism of the past few decades. In addition to chapters on music, capitalism, and globalization, Music in the World includes previously unpublished essays on the continuing utility of the concept of culture in the study of music, a historicization of treatments of affect, and an essay on value and music. Taken together, Taylor’s essays chart the changes in different kinds of music in twentieth- and twenty-first-century music and culture from a variety of theoretical perspectives.
