Synopsis

Many media ecologists have speculated about oral culture and custom, but few have documented in situ the cultural changes actually experienced when a traditional system of musical experience is transformed by modern technology. This book is an oral history and ethnographic description of musical change in a small town community in Brazil through the compilation of 40 oral histories. The study of music as communication is squarely within the media ecology theoretical framework of orality-literacy-electronic environments.
