Der Zusammenhang zwischen Virtuosität und Popularität scheint - denkt man an Musiker wie Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Parker oder auch den »Fernsehgeiger« David Garrett - auf der Hand zu liegen. Aber die Sache ist komplexer und widersprüchlicher als erwartet: Virtuosität ist konstitutiv für zahlreiche populäre Musiken von Jazz über Bluegrass und Metal bis zum HipHop. Zugleich kann fehlende instrumentale oder vokale Technik als Ausweis von Authentizität gelten. Und mitunter soll Virtuosität populäre Rezeptionsmodi geradezu verhindern. Die Beiträge des Bandes fragen: Worin gründet die Faszination an und der Argwohn gegenüber der Virtuosität - geht es vor allem um das zirzensische Element, das in Ausdrücken wie »Griffbrettakrobat« oder »Tastenzauberer« durchscheint? Und: Welche Parallelen und Unterschiede zum Diskurs innerhalb der »E«-Musik lassen sich beobachten? Gibt es eine spezifische Virtuosität der populären Musik oder tendiert virtuose Musik generell zur Popularität?

Mazierska presents a cultural history of popular Viennese electronic music from 1990 to 2015, from the perspectives of production, scene and national and international reception. To illustrate this history in depth, a number of case studies of the most successful and distinguished musicians are explored, such as Kruder and Dorfmeister, Patrick Pulsinger, Tosca, Electric Indigo and Sofa Surfers. The author draws on research about electronic music, the relationship between music and the urban environment, the history of Austria and Vienna, music scenes and fandom, the digital shift , stardom in popular music (especially electronic music), as well as theories of postmodernism.

Since it was first published in 1993, the Sourcebook for Research in Music has become an invaluable resource in musical scholarship. The balance between depth of content and brevity of format makes it ideal for use as a textbook for students, a reference work for faculty and professional musicians, and as an aid for librarians. The introductory chapter includes a comprehensive list of bibliographical terms with definitions; bibliographic terms in German, French, and Italian; and the plan of the Library of Congress and the Dewey Decimal music classification systems. Integrating helpful commentary to instruct the reader on the scope and usefulness of specific items, this updated and expanded edition accounts for the rapid growth in new editions of standard works, in fields such as ethnomusicology, performance practice, women in music, popular music, education, business, and music technology. These enhancements to its already extensive bibliographies ensures that the Sourcebook will continue to be an indispensable reference for years to come.

Musicians are always quick to adopt and explore new technologies. The fast-paced changes wrought by electrification, from the microphone via the analogue synthesiser to the laptop computer, have led to a wide range of new musical styles and techniques. Electronic music has grown to a broad field of investigation, taking in historical movements such as musique concrte and elektronische Musik, and contemporary trends such as electronic dance music and electronica. The first edition of this book won the 2009 Nicolas Bessaraboff Prize as it brought together researchers at the forefront of the sonic explorations empowered by electronic technology to provide accessible and insightful overviews of core topics and uncover some hitherto less publicised corners of worldwide movements. This updated and expanded second edition includes four entirely new chapters, as well as new original statements from globally renowned artists of the electronic music scene, and celebrates a diverse array of technologies, practices and music.
