Music: Book Series

Music and Visual Culture

Series Editors:

Music and Visual Culture is a new series of both monographs and anthologies that offer original insights into musical and visual concepts or practices in combination. Bursting the bounds of traditional iconographic studies, research in this area draws upon a wide range of materials (visual art, objects, ephemera, film and television, music video, multimedia installation, online content, video games, metaphor, criticism and aesthetics, staging for opera and dance), and springs from a broad array of disciplines (musicology, art history, ethnomusicology, film studies, game studies, performance studies, cultural studies). The series aims to include work representing the full span of geographies and eras, and engaging with a variety of approaches such as cultural history; ethnomusicology; opera, film, and performance studies; multimedia phenomena; and music psychology or cognitive neuroscience. The editors’ premise is that studies in music and visual culture should not be seen as occupying a middle ground between these two disciplines, but rather as integral to each field—participating in and helping to advance each disciplinary discourse equally.
