Professor Nicholas Cook is a world leading music scholar with an eclectic range of interests from aesthetics and analysis to psychology and pop. In this lecture, he examines the use of music to create affective values, constructions of identity and community.
His paper argues for a critical musicology that creates awareness of such operations. It reveals the complex ways in which people use music to try out identities and social relationships in a low-risk context – in other words, using music as a vehicle for making life choices.
