"the repetitiveness, the selfsameness, and the ubiquity of modern mass culture" (Theodor Adorno)

[W]hat I call ubiquitous musics: music in films, in stores, on the phone, in the office, on television, in audio books, and so on. These are the kinds of music that no one chooses for themselves but nevertheless wash our everyday lives with sound. While this is the music that we hear the most of per capita, it is not routinely included in popular music studies. I want to suggest that its absence has a lot to do with the way we define popular. --Thomas Swiss
