Nicholas Cook on Music

Haven't read his Music: A Very Short Introduction yet but Nicholas Cook's perspective on music in general sounds quite insightful. A broad definition of music in the context of recent history. Jacques Attali's Noise has some of the same impact on me.
Here's a reading of the French version of the first chapter to Cook's very short introduction. 

Anybody read the whole book?


Thought about creating a blog for some courses I’m teaching or will be teaching. This one will be (at least initially) for an ethnomusicology course to be taught at Concordia University (in Montreal) during Winter semester 2006.
