    Sub-title: Mystics, music and migration
    By (author): Hardeep Singh Sahota
    ISBN10-13: 1862181233 : 9781862181236
    This book explores the origins of this folk song and dance from the Panjab in South Asia and its development into part of modern British culture in the hybrid soundscape of British Bhangra and beyond. This book originated in academic research and the Heritage-lottery funded Bhangra Renaissance project. Through ethnographic research, oral history interviews, performances, photography, story-telling and community activity it celebrates the past contribution of all those involved in Bhangra. This ground-breaking work provides an in-depth history of the spiritualism of performance and song, and an overview of the artists involved in influencing its development, as well as contemporaries leading the way of Bhangra’s renaissance amongst the South Asian diaspora in the UK and around the world.

    Foreword; An Essence of Bhangra; Bhangra in Acedemia; Exploring the Soundscape of Panjab; Exploring Bhnagra Dance & Mysticism; Evolution of Bhangra Music; Bhangra in Renaissance; The Diversity of Bhangra; Select Bibliography; Key Terms; Appendices; Notes; Personal Dedication.

    Title: Explosions in November
    Sub-title: The first 33 years of Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival
    By (author): Professor Richard Steinitz
    ISBN10-13: 1862180997 : 9781862180994
    Explosions in November tells the story of one of Europe’s leading cultural institutions, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf), through the eyes of its founder and former artistic director, Professor Richard Steinitz. From its modest beginnings in 1978, when winter fog nearly sabotaged the inaugural programme, to today’s internationally renowned event, hcmf has been a pioneering champion of the best in contemporary music.Now Richard Steinitz brings his insider view on the people behind the festival and how they made each year a success. He recalls his encounters with some true giants of music, including Boulez, Berio, Cage, Ligeti, Stockhausen and Xenakis. Discover how the author survived mushroom-hunting with John Cage, how the festival engineered a historic reconciliation between Cage and Pierre Boulez and how a ceiling fitting nearly brought Stockhausen’s career to a premature end. It is a compelling, inspiring and often entertaining story. Explosions in November reveals the full picture of a festival that continues to surprise, delight and provoke its audiences to this day.

    Title: Huddersfield's Roll of Honour 1914-1922
    By (author): Margaret Stansfield, Reverend Paul Wilcock
    ISBN10-13: 1862181268 : 9781862181267
    Huddersfield’s Roll of Honour 1914-1922 is a detailed account of 3,439 service personnel from Huddersfield who lost their lives during the First World War. In the Preface, HRH The Duke of York KG writes: This publication represents the lifetime work of Margaret Stansfield who sadly passed away in 2012. Margaret spent 30 years compiling the 3,439 biographical entries giving a poignant insight into the background, working lives and families of those who selflessly left Huddersfield to fight for their country never to return. Along with the biographical accounts there are many moving letters to the families of soldiers who lost their lives reflecting an attempt to bring comfort amid the darkness that their loss brought to both families and comrades alike.

    Title: Noise in and as Music
    By (author): Aaron Cassidy, Aaron Einbond
    ISBN10-13: 1862181187 : 9781862181182
    One hundred years after Luigi Russolo’s The Art of Noises, this book exposes a cross-section of the current motivations, activities, thoughts, and reflections of composers, performers, and artists who work with noise in all of its many forms. The book’s focus is the practice of noise and its relationship to music, and in particular the role of noise as musical material -- as form, as sound, as notation or interface, as a medium for listening, as provocation, as data. Its contributors are first and foremost practitioners, which inevitably turns attention toward how and why noise is made and its potential role in listening and perceiving. Contributors include Peter Ablinger, Sebastian Berweck, Aaron Cassidy, Marko Ciciliani, Nick Collins, Aaron Einbond, Matthias Haenisch, Alec Hall, Martin Iddon, Bryan Jacobs, Phil Julian, Michael Maierhof, Joan Arnau Pàmies, and James Whitehead (JLIAT). The book also features a collection of short responses to a two-question interview -- what is noise (music) to you? and why do you make it? -- by some of the leading musicians working with noise today. Their work spans a wide range of artistic practice, including instrumental, vocal, and electronic music; improvisation; notated composition; theater; sound installation; DIY; and software development. Interview subjects include Eryck Abecassis, Franck Bedrossian, Antoine Chessex, Ryan Jordan, Alice Kemp (Germseed), George Lewis, Lasse Marhaug, Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje, Diemo Schwarz, Ben Thigpen, Kasper Toeplitz, and Pierre Alexandre Tremblay.
    Table of Contents:
    Introduction; Aaron Cassidy and Aaron Einbond; Black Square and Bottle Rack: noise and noises; Un-sounding Music: noise is not sound; Noise and the Voice: exploring the thresholds of vocal transgression; Subtractive Synthesis: noise and digital (un)creativity; Noise Music Information Retrieval; Inside Fama’s House: listening, intimacy, and the noises of the body; “We Need You To Play Some Music”; Beyond Pitch Organization: an interview with Michael Maierhof; Materiality and Agency in Improvisation: Andrea Neumann’s “Inside Piano”; Noise-Interstate(s): toward a subtextual formalization; Molding the Pop Ghost: noise and immersion; Qubit Noise Non-ference: a conversation.

    Title: Overcoming Form
    Sub-title: Reflections on immersive listening
    By (author): Richard Glover, Bryn Harrison
    ISBN10-13: 1862181209 : 9781862181205
    This short collection of essays focuses on four areas of immersive sound environments: repetition, sustained tones, performed installations and approaches to extended forms. Through in depth exploration of the experiential nature of these subjects, the authors offer reflections upon the materials used for these environments, how they are organised, and the consequences of this on how we listen.

    Title: Shibusa
    Sub-title: Extracting Beauty
    By (author): Monty Adkins, Pip Dickens
    ISBN10-13: 1862181012 : 9781862181014
    This book celebrates a number of artistic endeavours: music, painting and the skill of making in general with particular reflection upon Japanese aesthetics. Composer, Monty Adkins and visual artist, Pip Dickens (through a Leverhulme Trust Award collaboration) investigate commonality and difference between the visual arts and music exploring aspects of rhythm, pattern, colour and vibration as well as outlining processes utilised to evolve new works within these practices. The hand-cut paper Katagami stencil: a beautiful utilitarian object once used to apply decoration on to Japanese kimonos, is used as a poignant symbol – the ‘hand-made machine’ - by Adkins and Dickens both within the production of paintings and sound compositions and as a thematic link throughout the book. The book reviews examples of a number of contemporary artists and craftspeople and their individual approaches to ‘making things well’. It explores the balance between hand skills and technology within a work’s production with particular reference to Richard Sennett’s review of material culture in The Craftsman. Shibusa includes contributing essays by arts writer, Roy Exley, who examines convergence and crossover within the arts and an in-depth history, and review, of the kimono making industry by Kyoto designer, Makoto Mori.
    Table of Contents:
    Exploding stillness; The katagami stencil: handmade machine; Pattern, rhythm, vibration and colour; Low tech and high tech: the tail should not wag the dog; Smashed pianos and dysfunctional brushes; Sharing of textures: crossovers in contemporary art; The craftsmen of Kyoto; History and techniques of the kimono.
