Music is everywhere: from our cars to our iPods, our TVs to our bedrooms. The experience, cultural relevance, and enjoyment of music and its accompanying manifestations, like album artwork and method of release, create this collection of modern readings. (E)tunes delves even deeper than that, between song verses, to reveal inner workings of the industry and expose the evolution of musical expression. Editor Rod Taylor explores the correlation between technological innovation, artistic expression, and consumption of music, bringing contemporary readers of the digital age a study in the artifacts of “analog” music.
