Title: Alternative music and the emergence of a Singaporean sound.
Authors: Loh, Bernice Mui Kiang.
Keywords: DRNTU::Visual arts and music::Music
Issue Date: 2011
Abstract: This thesis essentially focuses on alternative musicians in Singapore, showing how they are more likely than any other group of local musicians to produce a Singaporean sound. Employing Bourdieu’s key theoretical ideas, I will explore the field of alternative music in Singapore, focusing on the musicians, listeners and the State. Through the voices of alternative musicians, I argue that while a distinctive musical temperament predispose them to actualise a distinct Singaporean sound, much depends also on the key actors within the field of alternative music.
