9780393241921: The Song Machine - Inside the Hit Factory
Revue de presse :

"Revealing, frightening, funny and unsettling - John Seabrook's account of the men and women who create the songs that poke at our ears all day really is terrific." (Roddy Doyle)

"This is a fascinating tale about an amazing phenomenon: how hits get made. John Seabrook combines a love of music and an appreciation for personalities to take us on a starry journey from Stockholm and London to New York and Orlando showing how creativity gets discovered, polished, and packaged. His book is a triumph of great writing and reporting, and the lessons reverberate far beyond the world of music." (Walter Isaacson, author of 'The Innovators' and 'Steve Jobs')

"In The Song Machine, John Seabrook tells of a cutthroat and fascinating industry, where readers discover the gifted musical maestros who orchestrate hit after hit but rarely get their name in print. The narrative shows not just how technology has upended the music business but of how - despite prattle about "the long tail" - just one per cent of artists generate 80 per cent of the industry's profits. This is a story with as many surprises as Game of Thrones." (Ken Auletta, author of 'Googled: The End of The World as We Know It')

"Beneath the surface of today's pop music lies an industrial process as rigorous and bizarre as the one perfected by McDonald's. Seabrook shows what it takes to make a hit in a book that's beautifully written, revelatory, funny, and full of almost unbelievable details." (Eric Schlosser, author of 'Fast Food Nation' and 'Command and Control')

"Anyone who wants to understand how the clash of cultures has shaped what we listen to should read this important book. John Seabrook has a marvelous ear for language - and perfect pitch when it comes to music journalism." (Bob Spitz, author of 'The Beatles: The Biography')

Revue de presse :

"Revelatory, funny, and full of almost unbelievable details" (Eric Schlosser, author of 'Fast Food Nation')

"As addictive as its subject" ( Sunday Times)

"A gripping investigation of modern hitmaking… Seabrook’s writing is as sleek and swift as a dolphin" ( New Statesman)

"This is a fascinating tale about an amazing phenomenon" (Walter Isaacson, author of 'Steve Jobs')

"Seabrook subtly explores not only the insides of a song, but how a song gets inside us" ( Observer)

"Revealing, frightening, funny and unsettling" (Roddy Doyle)

"Seabrook’s book takes the reader into a hidden world behind some of the most high-profile cultural products of the era" ( Guardian)

"A highly engaging narrative" ( Economist)

"Weaving its way through two-and-a-half decades, one of The Song Machine’s greatest achievements is to situate the pop song within a shifting matrix of technological evolution, diminishing revenue streams, and warring egos" ( Independent)

"Seabrook takes us on a lucid and well-researched tour of the places where modern hits are created" (Peter Clark Literary Review)

Description du livre WW Norton Co, United States, 2015. Hardback. État : New. 244 x 165 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the last two decades a new type of hit song has emerged, one that is almost inescapably catchy. Pop songs have always had a hook, but today s songs bristle with them: a hook every seven seconds is the rule. Painstakingly crafted to tweak the brain s delight in melody, rhythm, and repetition, these songs are highly processed products. Like snack-food engineers, modern songwriters have discovered the musical bliss point. And just like junk food, the bliss point leaves you wanting more. In The Song Machine, longtime New Yorker staff writer John Seabrook tells the story of the massive cultural upheaval that produced these new, super-strength hits. Seabrook takes us into a strange and surprising world, full of unexpected and vivid characters, as he traces the growth of this new approach to hit-making from its obscure origins in early 1990s Sweden to its dominance of today s Billboard charts. Journeying from New York to Los Angeles, Stockholm to Korea, Seabrook visits specialized teams composing songs in digital labs with new track-and-hook techniques. The stories of artists like Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and Rihanna, as well as expert songsmiths like Max Martin, Stargate, Ester Dean, and Dr. Luke, The Song Machine shows what life is like in an industry that has been catastrophically disrupted-spurring innovation, competition, intense greed, and seductive new products. Going beyond music to discuss money, business, marketing, and technology, The Song Machine explores what the new hits may be doing to our brains and listening habits, especially as services like Spotify and Apple Music use streaming data to gather music into new genres invented by algorithms based on listener behavior. Fascinating, revelatory, and original, The Song Machine will change the way you listen to music. N° de réf. du libraire LIB9780393241921
