Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the following publication, which we hope might
be of interest to you:

Raphaël Nowak and Andrew Whelan (eds.), *Networked Music Cultures:
Contemporary approaches, emerging issues.*

This collection presents a range of essays on contemporary music
distribution and consumption patterns and practices. The contributors to
the collection use a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches,
discussing the consequences and effects of the digital distribution of
music as it is manifested in specific cultural contexts.
The widespread circulation of music in digital form has far-reaching
consequences: not least for how we understand the practices of sourcing and
consuming music, the political economy of the music industries, and the
relationships between format and aesthetics. Through close empirical
engagement with a variety of contexts and analytical frames, the
contributors to this collection demonstrate that the changes associated
with networked music are always situationally specific, sometimes
contentious, and often unexpected in their implications.
With chapters covering topics such as the business models of streaming
audio, policy and professional discourses around the changing digital music
market, the creative affordances of format and circulation, and local
practices of accessing and engaging with music in a range of distinct
cultural contexts, the book presents an overview of the themes, topics and
approaches found in current social and cultural research on the relations
between music and digital technology.
