About this book

Despite the explosion of interest in the "global 1968," the arts in this period - both popular and avant-garde forms - have too often been neglected. This interdisciplinary volume brings together scholars in history, cultural studies, musicology and other areas to explore the symbiosis of the sonic and the visual in the counterculture of the 1960s.

Reviews

'From Tropicália to the New American Cinema, French prog rock to conceptual photography, this anthology proves that any compelling account of the polyvalent conjunctures of culture and politics in the 1960s must be interdisciplinary. Readable and engaging, this book pries the decade out of the clichés that too often imprison it to offer fresh perspectives on music, art, and film.' Erika Balsom, Lecturer in Film Studies and Liberal Arts, King's College London, UK

"Much has been said and written about the 'global 1968,' but the impact of the global language of the arts in this revolutionary time period is still under-researched. This book links wild hair and ecstatic screams, guitar smashing and spirituality to a new picture of the multifaceted interrelation of sound and vision in the counterculture of the Sixties." -Joachim Scharloth, Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of Dresden, Germany
