Musical Intimacies and Indigenous Imaginaries

Aboriginal Music and Dance in Public Performance

Byron Dueck

  • A groundbreaking new performative theory of music culture
  • Introduces a theory of "intimacies and imaginaries" that allows analysis to move flexibly between the micro- and macro-social.
  • Undertakes a sustained consideration of the implications of Michael Warner's theory of publics and counterpublics for the emplaced, ethnographic study of music.
