The final chapter considers the various ways in which musical interactions might be considered political interactions. It begins with a critical discussion of Adorno’s account of the politics of avant-garde and popular music respectively, moving on to a discussion of the ways in which music might help to create a public sphere. It then considers both how music might serve as a political resource and politics as a musical resource, before discussing the ways in which music worlds sometimes serve to incubate alternative values and identities, potentially prefiguring wider political changes. Music worlds can be political worlds too.
