Transformations of various kinds have always shaped societies and especially its cultures and research – triggered, for example, by wars, revolutions, shifts in social orders, pandemics, etc. They have led to uncertainty and social upheaval, but also to innovation and change. As pop music cultures, in their entire breadth, can be described as seismographs of social, political, economic, ecological, media, artistic, and technological transformations, in and through them, fields of tensions, disruptions, and lines of conflict become not only visible, audible, and perceptible, but also communicable and thus, negotiable. Volume No. 2 of ~Vibes – The IASPM D-A-CH Series, which is based on the 4th Biennial IASPM D-A-CH conference at Paderborn University/online, takes a closer look at the transformative moments of pop music cultures by theorizing, empiricizing, historicizing, and, finally, politicizing them.
