Musical Creativities in Practice (Originally to be held on 19th June)

Musical Creativities in Practice offers a powerful corrective to myths and outmoded conceptions regarding musical creativity which is often thought of as the practice of an individual artist.

It argues the need for conceptual expansion of musical creativities in line with the real world practices. It explores how different types of musical creativities are recognised and communicated in the practices of professional musicians including composers, improvisers, sing-a-song writers, original bands, DJs, live coders and interactive sound designers working in the music industry. Drawing on Bourdieus thinking tools, this book provides the foundation for a sociological analysis of musical creativities which is designed to transform the ways that music in education is thought about in the future.
