A SUNDAY TIMES, TELEGRAPH, ROUGH TRADE, PITCHFORK AND UNCUT MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE Art Sex Music is the autobiography of a musician who, as a founding member of the avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle and electronic pioneers Chris & Cosey, has consistently challenged the boundaries of music over the past four decades. It is the account of an artist who, as part of COUM Transmissions, represented Britain at the IXth Biennale de Paris, whose Prostitution show at the ICA in 1976 caused the Conservative MP Nicholas Fairbairn to declare her, COUM and Throbbing Gristle 'Wreckers of Civilisation' . . . shortly before he was arrested for indecent exposure, and whose work continues to be held at the vanguard of contemporary art. And it is the story of her work as a pornographic model and striptease artiste which challenged assumptions about morality, erotica and art. Art Sex Music is the wise, shocking and elegant autobiography of Cosey Fanni Tutti.

Music plays a fascinating role in courting and flirting in human cultures. The power of music to enhance social cohesion, to stimulate people to synchronize their rhythms, to sway, to dance, to get into a trance, or indeed, to experience sexual excitement, has led to numerous different traditions of music and dance in the service of seduction or sexual education. This book examines a wide range of such practices: from the dancing and singing of South Indian devadasis (ritual and royal courtesans) to the provocative dialogues exchanged between Chinese rural villagers; from the vigorous dance songs of prepubescent girls of the Baka (Cameroon) to the "bump and grind" and serpentine movements of pole dancers in night clubs. And how did a composer like Mozart define the interplay of attraction and recoil in his operas? Many aspects, from conventions of language to gestures, postures, smells and other sensual signals, appear to be unique for specific local traditions. Other features, such as the seductive qualities of the human voice or the appreciation of vocal musical dialogues as a "battle of wits" clearly transcend cultural boundaries. The shared point of departure for the wide-ranging (musical, biological and anthropological) excursions in this volume is the how and why of music's power to establish a sexual rapport. Does music, like sex, go deeper than culture? A range of scholars from different disciplines set out to address these questions.

Sex, Art, and Audience responds to and discusses issues raised by ballet, modern dance, and non-Western performances during the 1980s and 1990s. The essays examine the subject of gender and sexuality in performances, the relationship of the dance performance to its audience, and the important but puzzling fact that dance, alone amongst art forms, lacks a reproducible text. In addition, these essays consider the development of classical style in the works of modern choreographic masters such as George Balanchine, Martha Graham, Paul Taylor, and Merce Cunningham. Through its five chapters, Sex, Art, and Audience develops an aesthetic stance of contextual viewing: dance is most productively seen in its place among other art forms, and the arts collectively as a constituent, if distinct, part of our lives as a whole.

Ten years in the making, The Lizard Stays in the Cage is a compelling wildly entertaining examination of the artistic life as seen through the eyes of Southern Californian musician, writer and creative entrepreneur Anthony Smith. With ample doses of humor, honesty and a keen memory for detail, Smith takes the reader from his upbringing in Northern California to the 1990's music scene in San Diego, a brief but colorful stint in LA, the onto the unpredictable roads of America, where he traveled and performed incessantly with a variety of groups including his own Global Funk Council (which logged over two hundred shows a year). It’s a crazy, irreverent ride reminiscent of Chuck Klosterman, Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac, but delivered in a voice that belongs unmistakably to the author. A must read for anyone who loves music and the arts or who has ever thought about trying to do something creative for a living.

Sex, Gender and Social Change details the drastic changes in the attitudes toward gender in society since the seventeenth century and its effects on each gender. Gerhard Falk examines the change in roles of men and women as the power structure evens out between the genders. He begins with the place of women in the working world as they gain prominence as executives, in the military, as religious leaders, and in the political arena. He then moves into less studied aspects such as the move toward gender neutrality in fields like nursing and engineering, and the difference between the involvement of the genders in crime. Finally, he approaches the evolution and future of personal lives as roles change within the family and women take greater control over their sex lives.
