In this paper we provide an introduction to the theme of 'The place of music'. We discuss previous work on music by geographers before tracing themes of universality and particularity through classical and popular musics. We consider issues of economy, society, polity and culture in the 'universal' and 'national' musics of the classical tradition, the modern global popular music industry and 'alternative' popular musics. The intention is to show a range of possible themes and styles for geographical work on music.
