About This Series

Pop 16

When did popular music originate? Depending on the definition, it was somewhere between the years 822 and 1964. But, then, around a hundred years ago the decisive transition occurred: wax cylinders and, later, shellac records were able to preserve musical performances and radio was able to broadcast them, thus beginning the era of recorded music. Pop 16 examines what styles, manners of interpretation and performance praxes these new technologies encountered. What interactions arose as a result, and what effects does all this have on today’s music?
