In the current hodge-podge selection of entertainment, art and culture, where most cultural consumables are easily accessible in online services and archives, the distinctions between popular and marginal are becoming more blurred in taste cultures and audiovisual expression. This anthology goes to the heart of these themes through the common denominator of music, teasing out the connections between popular music and avant-garde composition as well as their relationships to current and past aesthetics and technological practices. It is also a celebration of professor John Richardson’s outstanding work in the fields of musicology and audiovisual research.
