Feld, Steven


Now in its second edition,Sound and Sentiment is an ethnographic study of sound as a cultural system--that is, a system of symbols--among the Kaluli people of Papua New Guinea. It shows how an analysis of modes and codes of sound communication leads to an understanding of life in Kaluli society. By studying the form and performance of weeping, poetics, and song in relation to the Kaluli natural and spiritual world, Steven Feld reveals Kaluli sound expressions as embodiments of deeply felt sentiments. "A milestone in ethnomusicology that has implications for research on all types of music."--Popular Music "This original, insightful, informative, and intellectually exciting book deserves a wide audience."--Anthropological Linguistics "A landmark in first presenting in detail the idea of an ethnography of sound."--American Ethnologist "This work is a unique, moving, valuable synthesis. . . . Readable, original, complete."--Choice For this second edition the author has updated his original work with a new, innovative chapter that includes an interpretive review by its subjects, the Kaluli people themselves. He has also written a new preface and discography and revised the references section.Feld, Steven is the author of 'Sound and Sentiment Birds, Weeping, Poetics, and Song in Kaluli Expression', published 1990 under ISBN 9780812212990 and ISBN 0812212991.
