This book offers the first in-depth study of experimental and popular music scenes in Beirut, looking at musicians working towards a new understanding of musical creativity and music culture in a country that is dominated by mass-mediated pop music, and propaganda. Burkhalter studies the generation of musicians born at the beginning of the Civil War in the Lebanese capital, an urban and cosmopolitan center with a long tradition of cultural activities and exchanges with the Arab world, Europe, the U.
These Lebanese rappers, rockers, death-metal, jazz, and electro-acoustic musicians and free improvisers choose local and transnational forms to express their connection to the broader musical, cultural, social, and political environment. Several key tracks are analyzed with methods from ethnomusicology, and popular music studies, and contextualized through interviews with the musicians. Discussing key references from belly dance culture s , psychedelic rock in Beirut s , the noises of the Lebanese Civil war — , and transnational Pop-Avant-Gardes and World Music 2.
Ethnomusicology, popular music studies, and musicology find it hard to research the rapid developments in these and similar musics and music circles. This part puts forward a methodological approach and a mix of theories that analyzes music and music making from miscellaneous perspectives. The approach is inductive, built on my many years of practice and participant observation in music and cultural markets. The part includes discussions of music, video clips, lyrics, and cover art.
By analyzing the trumpet playing of Mazen Kerbaj , it discusses links between free improvised music and sonic memories from the Lebanese Civil War. It observes major and minor music and sonic phenomena within the Lebanese Civil war — : rock and protest music, and the noises and sounds of bombs, radio, and propaganda.
It further discusses pan-Arabic pop music of the s, and propaganda music of the war between Israel and Hizbullah. Part V — Meaning — Reading Lebanese Music Making from Different Perspectives — analyzes music and key musicians in Beirut from historical, socio-political, geo-political, psychological, aesthetical, and Euro-American perspectives.
From an artistic perspective, we see these musicians manipulating material with techniques of avant-garde and pop avant-garde. From a political and historical perspective, we trace feedbacks from the conjunctions between music, warfare and the Middle East. And from a psychological perspective, some musicians use music as self-therapy for dealing with their personal traumatic war memories. To what extent do they suggest possible new multi-sited modernities? The first CD release by Norient and Outhere Records focuses on a young generation of musicians from Beirut that is tired of war, fed up with politics, sick of religious madness, and angry about Euro-American exoticism.

If not, it is possible for buyers to notify the sellers to transfer the funds into a checking or savings account, or reinvest into a different CD. Funds that are invested in CDs are meant to be tied up for the life of the certificate, and any early withdrawals are normally subject to a penalty except liquid CDs. The severity of the penalty depends on the length of the CD and the issuing institution. As an aside, in certain rising interest rate environments, it can be financially beneficial to pay the early withdrawal penalty in order to reinvest the proceeds into new higher yielding CDs.
While longer-term CDs offer higher returns, an obvious drawback to them is that the funds are locked up for longer. A CD ladder is a common strategy employed by investors that attempts to circumvent this drawback by using multiple CDs.
Instead of renewing just one CD with a specific amount, the CD is split up into multiple amounts for multiple CDs in a set up that allows them to mature at staggered intervals.
For example, instead of investing all funds into a 3-year CD, the funds are used to invest in 3 different CDs at the same time with terms of 1, 2, and 3 years. He has written music for theatre, dance and film, and has toured extensively in Europe.
