Music/sound, society/culture is a blog led by Ziemowit Socha -- a sociologist and a market researcher/analyst and obviously concerns of sociology of music (or as you wish: sociomusicology).

After my graduation in sociology (dealt with the history of sociology of music in Poland in MA) and ethnology (did ethnographic field research on religious relations in Eastern Poland for BA) at Nicolas Copernicus University to meet different point of view I started cooperation with musicologists from Wroclaw University, where I wrote my PhD about the reception of 20th century's western artistic music. In 2011-2012

I was a visiting researcher in Institut für Musikwissenschaft und Medienwissenschaft and 2016-2017 in Centro de Estudos de Sociologia e Estética Musical. Between 2012 and 2016 was co-leading of qualitative and quantitative research on musicking, music labor market and musical institutions in Poland. Was also participant of empirical research about recording industry, musical taste and cultural participation.

Mentioned sub-discipline is understood by me for the methodological and theoretical reasons rather as a part of sociology than musicology. Although, the subject of study (production and consumption of music and of course music itself) is quite related to musicology, especially to ethnomusicology. On my blog I hardly attempt not to represent any specific theoretical orientation, although I would rather prefer anthropological and economical approach than mathematical and political ones. I try to cover entire spectrum between ethnomethodology and evolutionary psychology of culture. 

The blog has been found for following reasons:
  • to recognize the interest in this problematic in the Polish Internet,
  • to present found in the Web, in libraries and bookstores, on conferences (and so on...) materials that can be  useful for anybody interested in sociological perspective focused on music,
  • to discuss raised issues,
  • and finally to motivate myself to more intensive (re)search
