Music on the Edge: Selected Papers from the 2007 IASPM Australia/New Zealand Conference
The theme of the 2007 IASPM Dunedin conference was Music on the Edge – a theme chosen not only to encourage presentations on marginal or fringe topics, but also to reflect Otago’s ‘edge’ position in the deep south of the South Island as well as the culture of alternative music that has long predominated in the local music scene. Paper proposals were invited for four streams: the edge of discipline(s), the edge of popular, the edges of society and the cutting edge, and these are reflected in the papers selected for publication in this volume.
