Connotations of Music
(Konotacije glasbe)

A block of texts under this title appeared in one of the leading Slovene journals of social sciences. Range of topics was very wide. Editor of the block, Peter Stankovic, wrote about "European Classical Music and the Philosophy of the Subjectivity" (Evropska klasicna glasba in filozofija subjekta, pp. 31-47). Primoz Jurman presented his ethnographic fieldwork among local bikers from the small town of Ziri ("Slovene Subcultural Motorcyclists' Scene: The Case of 'MC Rolling Bones' from Ziri" - Slovenska subkulturna motoristicna scena na priemru 'MC Rolling Bones' iz Zirov, pp. 93-115). Rajko Mursic wrote an essay on the present situation in different kinds of contemporary music ("The Converging Period of the End of History and Its Sound Excrements: Meditations on Contemporary Music" - Vase ukrivljena doba konca zgodovine in njeni zvocni iztrebki: Meditacije o glasbi danes, pp. 11- 30). Croatian author Branko Kostelnik compared impact of Nirvana and the leading Croatian rock group in the 1990's, Majke ("From Exclusion to Inclusion: Processes Enabling a Minority to Achieve Social Recognition (Two Examples From the Most Important Achievements of American and Croatian Rock Culture of the 1990s: Nirvana and Majke)" - Od ekskluzije do inkluzije: Procesi, ki omogocajo manjsinjski skupini doseci druzbeno priznanje (primera najpomembnejsih poganjkov ameriske in hrvaske rock kulture devetdesetih: Nirvana in Majke, pp. 79-92). Beside those texts, two translated texts were also included in the block of "Musical Connotations": Amy Raphaels's "Never Mind the Bollocks: Women Rewrite Rock" (Introduction) and Robert Walser's "High, Low and Voodoo Aesthetics" (from 'Microphone Fiends').

Review in RPM#27/28 (Winter/Spring 1998/1999)

1997, Former Journal of the Musical Youth (Glasbena mladina) is now the most important general monthly musical journal in Slovenia. Its editorial policy is similar to the one in the British journal Wire. It covers all kinds of music, with a strong accent on "world music", rock, rap and jazz. In 'Muska', there are regular book reviews (predominately of recent books about popular music, published in English). After 1997, some papers on popular music are also published in the special section of the journal, called "Essays". Slovene branch of IASPM initiated this section.
