Sounding out the city: music and the sensuous production of place

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


The relationship between music and place is explored through biographical information on one particular individual and his social activities and networks in the city of Liverpool. Music plays a role in producing place as a material setting comprising the physical and built environment; as a setting for everyday social relations, practices and interactions; and as a concept or symbol that is represented or interpreted. This production of place through music is shown to be a contested and ideological process, whilst the dynamic interrelationship between music and place suggests that music plays a very particular and sensual role.
