[ecrea] New Book: Music as Multimodal Discourse: Semiotics, Power and Protest

Tue Dec 20 02:04:15 GMT 2016

Some of you may be interested in our new edited book Music as Multimodal Discourse: Semiotics, Power and Protest.

The book is an edited collection that sets out what we feel is a relatively new approach that takes music as just one mode of communication amongst others such as image and text, and is particularly relevant today in an increasingly multimedia world. There's some really good work in there from Lyndon Way, Göran Eriksson and David Machin, John Richardson, Theo Van Leeuwen, Johnny Wingstedt, Laura Filardo-Llamas, Aileen Dillane, Martin J. Power and Eoin Devereux, Rusty Barrett and Matthew Ord.
