Blurb/Shorttext:
This book argues that postmodernism has fundamentally changed our perception of history, and has allowed for our reading of past works to become distorted through practices such as pastiche, irony and kitsch. The impact on music is particularly noticeable, and such a transformation has brought about a review of the authentic. This work synthesises many arguments suggesting how we assemble the authentic, what effect postmodernism has had on its construction, and what the implications are of such a change. It argues for a review of our situation, detailing that we now view some music as inauthentic, arguing that in particular exotica was a musical expression that although bearing such models as kitsch, was a truthful and well realised response to its historical context.
