Not Just Mad Englishmen and a Dog: The Colonial Tuning of 'Music on Record', 1900-1908

Published By: Jamia Millia CCMG on eSS | Published Date: July, 16 , 2007

The paper excavates how the advent of commercial audiography, through 'Recording Expeditions' between 1902 and 1907, shaped configurations of the nascent business in, and culture around, 'music on record'. It will weigh the evolving nature of colonial imprints on these configurations by scrutinising three sites: the production of music, including the kinds of business practices shaping it; the popularisation of commodities and ideas through advertising and the meaning accorded to this 'new media' in the everyday life of early 20th century India. [WP No. 02/2008].
