Sonic Multiplicities : Hong Kong Pop and the Global Circulation of Sound and Image
This book examines the material, ideological, and geopolitical implications of music production and consumption in Hong Kong, and China at large. It exposes a new path for the study of popular music and its circulation. Through the lens of popular music in and from Hong Kong, "Sonic Multiplicities" examines the material, ideological, and geopolitical implications of music production and consumption. Yiu Fai Chow and Jeroen de Kloet draw on rich empirical research and industry experience to trace the worldwide flow of popular culture and the people who produce and consume it. In doing so, the authors make a significant contribution to our understanding of the political and social roles such circulation plays in today's world - and in a city under cultural threat in a country whose prominence is on the rise. Just as important, they clear a new path for the study of popular music.
