Discussed is the role, function and status of music in society and the influence of music on social, political, economic, technological and many other developments. Interesting lectures and interviews, challenging assignments, engaging articles and of course many musical examples provide more insight into where, how and why we listen to music, how music gives form to one's identity and what effect music has on our values.
