Playing across a Divide

Benjamin Brinner

Oxford University Press

Professional musicians are always enmeshed in larger sets of relationships as they join, create, and reshape networks relevant to their musical work. At all stages of their careers they navigate the links that bind them to others with related interests and needs in order, for instance, to find employment and partners for performances. The network concept can usefully be extended further to include institutions such as schools, events such as festivals, venues such as particular clubs or concert halls, and artifacts such as recordings. Networks have been analyzed from different perspectives in a broad array of disciplines, ranging from sociology through epidemiology to computer science. Network theory encompasses these and offers more detailed ways of thinking about relationships and roles. In this chapter, the author explores three related perspectives: networks, scenes, and art worlds.
