Music of technological reproduction

The sound recordings are, in pianola rolls or TV announcements, a privileged document for the study of musical situations: for example, the private and bourgeois audition on the first gramophone records, the collective construction of the public of musical films in 30s, or domestic entertainment of radio’s propaganda. The audition analysis and the technological study of sound recordings reveal ritual practices. These phenomena have structured modern industrial societies during the last two centuries.
