Works, authors and rights: music and dance in globalization.
As digital technologies set off new modes of writing, listening, exchanging, circulating and data storaging, as well as new forms of authority, economies and types of relationships to time and to the world, this set of texts questions notions of musical and choreographic creation in our globalized context. Through a series of case studies which go beyond the North/South, written/oral, learned/popular and sacred/secular dichotomies, we better understand how these practices participate in the same regime of creation which either integrates or puts in tension two logics, one of renewal, another one of innovation. These practices of composing and recomposing are also questioned in terms of regimes of authority. The interest of this approach is to show that, in various regions of the world, alternative solutions to “copyright” systems, certain old, others more recent, have been set up and are henceforth part of the new service economies sparked off by the democratization of digital technologies.
Volume! The French journal of popular music studies is the only peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to the study of contemporary popular music. It is published biannually by the Editions Mélanie Seteun, a publishing association specialized in popular music. The journal is in French with some non-translated articles in English.
Volume! was established in 2002 under the title Copyright Volume! by Gérôme Guibert, Marie-Pierre Bonniol and Samuel Etienne, and obtained its current name in 2008.
