Making Music Making Society by Josep Martí

Original Title: Making Music Making Society

A society is the result of interacting individuals, and individuals are also the result of this interaction. This interaction happens through music, among other factors. As such, music constitutes a powerful resource for symbolic interaction, which constitutes the medium and substance of a culture. The importance of music in a society is clearly brought to light in the role that it plays in the three basic parameters of the social logics: identity, social order and the need for exchange. If music is so important to us, it is because, apart from its assigned aesthetic values, it fits closely with the dynamics of each of these three different parameters. These parameters, which are consubstantial to the social nature of the human being, constitute the core of the book as they manifest in musical practices. This publication addresses important issues such as the role of music in shaping identities, how music and social order are intertwined and why music is so relevant in human interaction. The last part of the book explores issues related to the social application of musical research. The volume brings together specialists from different academic disciplines with the same powerful starting point: music is not merely something related to the social, but rather a social life itself, something capable of structuring the social experience.

Original Title: Who S Buying Which Popular Short Fiction Now What Are They Paying

Online booksellers are rapidly becoming online publishers. Sell your short fiction or nonfiction to the newest markets. Anyone who publishes your compiled short stories, novels, or nonfiction is looking for more opportunities to market your work. If you have published your stories or nonfiction with a mainstream or print-on-demand publisher, that firm cooperates with online booksellers. They probably want to leverage serial rights opportunities with your short stories, articles, or nonfiction excerpts from your books. After publication, you need to drive people to online booksellers' Web sites and your own to create visibility. The revolution is in virtual book tours and online marketing with booksellers. Another hidden market is short story publishing rights' auctions online to create visibility. You sell your writing as you'd sell a product at one of the online auctions. Long before finding any publisher or after the "face-out shelf life" of your book is over, sell or pre-sell your creations online. Offer short stories or articles to the public for a small fee to download. The music and movie industry do it. So can you. Online booksellers already are famous for a targeted community of readers that buy online. That's only one hint of hidden markets for authors that want to be well-paid for short stories or brief nonfiction. Here's how to write, customize, and market precisely what these merchants want. Here's how to pose the least financial risk to them.
