Genre Publics

Popular Music, Technologies, and Class in Indonesia

How popular music structures Indonesians' social and political subjectivities

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.

About the Author

EMMA BAULCH is associate professor in the School of Arts and Social Sciences at Monash University in Malaysia. She is the author of Making scenes: reggae, death metal and punk in 1990s' and co-author of Poverty and Digital Inclusion.

Endorsements

"Baulch's innovative study journeys through a half-century of Indonesian rock culture, elucidating connections among markets, emergent media technologies, class hierarchies, and everyday lives."—Jeremy Wallach, Bowling Green State University

"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. Baulch's wonderful book has much to teach us about the political life of popular music in the age of the consumer citizen."—Charles Hirschkind, University of California, Berkeley
