|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Turn Up The Bass provides an extraordinary glimpse into the world of New York City's underground dance music scene. With professional ease, Bjorn Klein captures the essence of the DJ's music, which comes to life in a series of easy-to-follow analyses and more than 50 transcribed examples of music. As Klein guides us through the DJ's early turntable experimentations, he spins a fascinating web of musical, social, technological and historical perspectives. The book offers a comprehensive overview of the aesthetic qualities of the music itself, while describing how the musical aesthetics, as well as particular modes of production and instrumental techniques represent definite elements of sociopolitical action. An excellent read!" - DR. MICHAEL RAPPE, PROFESSOR OF THEORY & HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC, COLOGNE UNIVERSITY OF MUSIC AND DANCE
"With this book, Bjorn Klein has published a study that is just as fundamentally sound as it is easy to understand. A spirited and riveting read that brings together academic insight and jaw dropping revelations in a seamless manner." - DR. JEREMY LEMARIE, SOCIOLOGY LECTURER AT PANTHEON-SORBONNE UNIVERSITY, PARIS 1
"Inside the musician's head. Entertaining and revealing! Turn Up The Bass will have you literally crank up the volume of your stereo while reading Bjorn Klein's brilliant analysis of dance music." - SEBASTIAN MULLER, B.M., BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC AND GUITARIST OF COLONEL PETROV'S GOOD JUDGEMENT
