What is music? How is it constructed? How is it consumed? Why do you enjoy it at all? InMusic: A Very Short plays Introduction, Nicholas Cook invites us to really think about music and the role it plays in our lives and our ears. Drawing on a number of accessible examples, the author prompts us to call on our own musical experiences in order to think more critically about the roles of the performers and the listener, about music as a commodity and an experience, what it means to understand music, and the values we ascribe to it.
Make Your First Festival Show Rock! Are you playing your first green-field music festival or outdoor show soon? Not quite sure how it all works on the other side of the 'Artists Only' sign? Don't worry; help is at hand. My name is Andy Reynolds, a concert tour manager & live sound engineer. In this printed, paperback, mini-guide, I will give you my tips on making the most of your first festival slot.

None of the bands can afford to be ill-prepared or leave things to chance. But you need not worry about any of that - you will hit the stage looking like a pro after reading this book!
