Note "How we find and make meaning through music and performance? Why does music move us? How do the immediate situation and larger social contexts influence the meanings that people find in stories, rituals, or films? '"Stance" is a study that challenges conventional thinking about cultural experience. It presents the rare combination of high-level philosophical theory and a serious engagement with a wide range of cultural practices in everyday life - from heavy metal guitar performance to undergraduate recitals, and beyond to mass media entertainment', says Fabian Holt, author of "Genre in Popular Music". This book will be of immediate interest to anyone in ethnomusicology, folklore, popular music studies, anthropology, or performance studies."--BOOK JACKET
