I’d had Whelan, Andrew Breakcore : identity and interaction on peer-to-peer out from the library for too long and someone had put in a request for it…

So after a quick read through, it wasn’t quite the book i was thinking it was.
It was still great to read research into such a niche field of music, but there were a few chapters which i feel had little to do with my own niche.
which is fine.

Whelan’s article in Cybersounds (Whelan, Andrew. 2006. “Do U Produce?: Subcultural Capital and Amateur Musicianship in Peer-to-Peer Networks.” Pp. 57-81 in Cybersounds: Essays on Virtual Music Culture, edited by Michael Ayers. New York: Peter Lang.) remains key for me.

Anyway, i found the Breakcore book online, here: http://julianabraham.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/breakcore.pdf

i’m not going to upload my notes & quotes as there’s loads…

one last article as it looks interesting:
Whelan, Andrew. 2010. “Free music and trash culture: the reconfiguration of musical value online.” What’s It Worth?: ‘Value’ and Popular Music, edited by Kirsten Zemke and Shelley Brunt. a google search should bring it up.
