The book’s focus is the practice of noise and its relationship to music, and in particular the role of noise as musical material—as form, as sound, as notation or interface, as a medium for listening, as provocation, as data.’ fed0363d-bac6-46ac-b71d-1595427acb8e Beerhouses, Brothels and Bobbies: policing by consent in Huddersfield and the Huddersfield district in the mid-nineteenth century David Taylor ‘Professor David Taylor has established a fine reputation for his books and articles on the history of policing in England. This new book on Huddersfield policing looks at the mid-nineteenth century and issues facing the local area in relation to policing a centre of West Riding textile production.’ explosions Explosions in November: the first 33 years of Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival Richard Steinitz ‘Explosions in November tells the story of one of Europe’s leading cultural institutions, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf), through the eyes of its founder and former artistic director, Professor Richard Steinitz. From its modest beginnings in 1978, when winter fog nearly sabotaged the inaugural programme, to today’s internationally renowned event, hcmf has been a pioneering champion of the best in contemporary music.’
