Air Guitar

Telegraph: Academic takes PhD in art of air guitar
The article itself is quite dismissive and there’s been an even more adverse reaction from a few academics elsewhere.
Isn’t it sad when a person’s research is evaluated without being read?
The topic itself is quite fascinating in terms of the sociology of music with connections with gendered perceptions of the body, gestural analysis, and musicking.
Let’s hope not everyone is so dismissive of the subject matter.
