>>7590316 Thank you sir. Do you happen to know of any recent articles, or maybe even books. that talk about pop music aesthetics? I'm thinking like what an electronic remix of a Lana Del Rey song can do to a listener at the right moment and a few drinks deep. I unironically believe electronic and some rap can be incredibly beautiful. I realize how niche this is
>>7590333 haven't read it but kode9 (Sam Goodman) wrote a book called Sonic Warfare and is probably pretty close to what you're describing given his background
For western music theory Walter Piston's books on harmony & counterpoint are the best. Introduction to Post-Tonal Theory by Strauss (which also has lots of sources) and Schoenberg if yr interested in 20th century.
I also like Structure and Style: The study and analysis of musical forms by Leon Stein and I've heard good things abt Charles Rosen
If you want some REALLY heady aesthetics/philosophy of music shit get Being about Music by Boretz & Randall
>>7590487 Music theory.net is fantastic. Self-taught myself with that with a few other sites and music documentaries. Went from not even knowing what a chord was to having a very intuitive grasp of how music works
