This title traces the relationships between music, space and identity, from inner city scenes to the music of nations, to give a wide-ranging perspective on popular music. It examines the influence of cultures, economics, politics, and technology on the changing structure and geographies of music at local and global levels. Sound Tracks also combines an analysis of changing personal identities - social, ethnic and sexual - with an extended discussion of globalization and local resistance. It takes music from its role as an expression of local culture in indigenous societies, to its gradual evolution towards an incomplete emergence of a global music industry. It also gives particular attention to the complex spread of world music from reggae to zouk and beyond, from their own diverse roots. Migration and ethnic diversity have contributed to hybrid, diasporic sounds, as evident in Algerian rai or in locally distinctive rap sounds. The technology of production and distribution, as music has become a commodity, are set against the apparent specificity of particular scenes, such as those of the Mersey, Dunedin or Seattle sounds.
