Music communities, media and technology

Review: Tamás Tófalvy: “Beyond the Subculture and Back. Popular Music Scenes, Genres and the Internet” (Túl a szubkultúrán, és vissza. Populáris zenei színterek, műfajok és az internet)

While from the ‘60’s the academic investigation of popular culture has gradually gained credit in the North American, Australian and British sociological fields, in Hungary the examination of popular music scenes occupies a marginal position. By exploring the sociocultural practises contributing to convert specific popular musical products into styles and genres within the overlapping networks of culture, media and technology, Tofalvy’s book entitled Beyond the Subculture and Back. Popular Music Scenes, Genres and the Internet (“Tul a szubkulturan, es vissza. Popularis zenei szinterek, műfajok es az internet”) makes an effort to fill this gap.
