Cambridge Elements in Music and the City

Music and the City sets urban musical cultures within new global and cross-disciplinary perspectives. The series aims to open up new ways of thinking about music in an urban context, embracing the widest diversity of music and sound in cities across the world. Breaking down boundaries between historical and contemporary, and between popular and high art, it seeks to illuminate the diverse urban environment in all its exhilarating and vivid complexity. The urban thus becomes a microcosm of a much messier, yet ultimately much richer, conception of the ‘music of everyday life’.
