Music for Imaginary Runways
Agenda Inc, a US pop culture consultancy, has conducted a survey on all the tracks played at fashion shows. The result is Music for Imaginary Runways, a pdf list of all the tracks and the claim that 2005 will be the year music and fashion converge more than ever before.
Another US pop culture consultancy, Influx, has posted an article arguing that there is a new genre of music emerging called 'Mash-up'. This is when a group of bands get together and play bits of each others songs. It sounds pretty cool but isn't it just doing what thousands of bands have done before, jamming and playing cover versions? I'm sure mash-up has been around for a while anyway - we've had the bootlegging trend and this is just an extension.
