About this Unit
Music is a means through which people create, socialise, consume, disseminate information, engage in power relationships, and agitate for political and social change. People form communities from their shared musical tastes and interests, and hierarchies are formed around particular kinds of music. Music can symbolise and facilitate solidarity, and expresses identity in ways that transcend physical boundaries. This unit examines popular music communities in a variety of contexts, from the local to the global to the virtual. It explores the functions and uses of music that commonly inform human activity, while also considering how these functions and uses have been articulated through recent changes in technology.
