Just as music has the power to inspire, it has the power to irritate and enrage. Why does certain music annoy us? Why does it force us to leave rooms, invade our personal space and affect us on a visceral level? Based on more than 70 interviews, this book discusses the everyday challenges of living together with unwanted music. It examines issues of taste, individual rights, private and public spaces, violence and the law.

The interviews explore various relationships with forced listening and the behaviors that result. Interviewees talk about emotions and reactions to the nuisance caused by music, highlighting matters of otherness, individualism and rights. They discuss experiences with neighbors, at stores, on the street, while commuting and even in their homes - and reveal the complex social interactions mediated by music and sounds in our day-to-day lives.


Felipe Trotta is Associate Professor in the Department of Media and Cultural Studies at the Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), Brazil, and Vice-Coordinator of the Post-Graduate Program in Communication. He is a musicologist who works frequently within the popular music studies field, with an emphasis on topics such as inequalities, gender and taste disputes. His work is widely recognized in Latin America, where he was Vice-President of the local branch of International Association for Study of Popular Music (IASPM-AL). He is the author of several articles and chapters, two books in Portuguese and co-editor (with Martha Ulhoa and Claudia Azevedo) of Made in Brazil: Studies in Popular Music (2015).
