Genre Publics

Popular Music, Technologies, and Class in Indonesia

Genre Publics is a cultural history showing how new notions of 'the local' were produced in context of the Indonesian 'local music boom' of the late 1990s. Drawing on industry records and interviews, media scholar Emma Baulch traces the institutional and technological conditions that enabled the boom, and their links with the expansion of consumerism in Asia, and the specific context of Indonesian democratization. Baulch shows how this music helped reshape distinct Indonesian senses of the modern, especially as 'Asia' plays an ever more influential role in defining what it means to be modern.

"A fine-grained analysis of the prominent role of Indonesian Rock and Pop in the social and political transformations that have defined the nation's post-authoritarian trajectory.
