Chapters finished

I've sent in final revisions to my chapter, "Free Jazz. Punk Rock." It will appear in the forthcoming volume Nyuu jazu sutadizu [The New Jazz Studies], to be published in Japan. Fellow ethnomusicologist Dave Novak also has a chapter in the volume. Thanks to Dave for solid and challenging critiques and to Scott Carter, as always, for being my primary sounding board.

I've also completed my first draft of an article, "Music, Aesthetics, and the Technologies of Online War," for an upcoming Critical Interventions volume through Berghahn Books. Still some work to do, but it's nice to have the first draft out. I'll present a version of this paper at the American Anthropological Association conference next week, December 6. Looking forward to it.
