You'll be glad to know I'm not posting a rant today. This time I just need some help with a University assignment...
Basically; in my commercial music in context class we've been set the task of producing a 2500 (yep; you read that correctly!) word essay on how Technology precedes Artist Invention, in which we have to choose one specific form of technology (related, for example, to performance, production, or playback) and discuss the impact it has had on popular music (which also includes rock 'n' roll, hard rock, some forms of metal etc.).
I've chosen the amplifier as my form of technology as it has a long history and has evolved a lot over the years; but the main problem I have is that I need to refer an academic source e.g. books, online periodicals, websites with authors etc. But from the way my assignment brief is written; it implies the preferred academic source would be a book, therefore I'm just going to stick with that. However; I have no idea where to start.
So do any of you know any good informative books to help me out? Due to the extreme word count on this essay; the more longer the book is, the better! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
