Pay special attention to the various ways that she articulates as a stated goal and in the actual analysis the relationship between a microanalysis of music, its production, performance, and experience, on the one hand, and a macroanalysis of the industry and larger political contexts and struggles on the other.
How, precisely, does she move between these levels of attention and analysis? Characterize her research methodologies and writing strategies and the rationale for the choices that she makes. What do these choices let her do? Be specific and give examples. How might you apply what she does to your project?

Seize the Dance! Seize the Dance is an ethnomusical study focused on the music and danc "Pygmy music" has captivated students and scholars of anthropology and music for decades if not centuries, but until now this aspect of their culture has never been described in a work that is at once vividly engaging, intellectually rigorous, and self-consciously aware of the ironies of representation.
Seize the Dance is an ethnomusical study focused on the music and dance of BaAka forest people, who live in the Lobaye region of the Central African Republic. Based on ethnographic research that Michelle Kisliuk conducted from through , this book describes BaAka songs, drum rhythms, and dance movements--along with their contexts of social interaction--in an elegant narrative that is enhanced by many photographs, musical illustrations, and field recordings on two compact discs.
