My blog is a forum for discussing the place of music in critical contexts, and also, the role it plays in people’s active lives–in particular their work, and professional involvements. I seek critics, being one, but also anyone for whom music is important; how it figures in their life, what they extract from it, how it benefits them morally or politically.
I will be conducting interviews, with critics, media professional, artists, political organizers, friends–anyone who has a point of view. Comments, prompted or otherwise, are avidly welcomed. Let’s start with a question: If music makes people feel better, is that all it does–or does it have another purpose, or play other roles?
