In the new issue, no. 9, of The journal of music and meaning, the editors announce that the journal will be published in blog format from now on. Entire issues will not be published at the same time. Instead, papers will appear in the blog when ready. The posts consists of and abstract, the author’s credentials, and a link to the paper in PDF. This is good news, although I find the new format somewhat confusing, perhaps because the new issue lacks a table of contents.
JMM #9 contains some articles of particular interest to readers of this blog:
- “Through thick and thin: the ontology of tape music” by Adam Stansbie
- “Meaningful scribbles: an approach to textual analysis of unconventional musical notations” by Douglas C. Wadle
