The Politics of Aesthetic Preference out in Organised Sound

My article “The Politics of Aesthetic Preference in Participatory Music” is out in Cambridge University Press‘s Organised Sound today & it really represents years thinking about participatory concert music experiences as consensus-based spaces. The article reads a political negotiation out of Nattiez and Agawu’s semiological accountings of music as discourse that, when taken alongside the agency handed over to a participating audience by performers/composers, constitutes a Habermasian public. Give it a read when you have a chance and get in touch!
