Papers and books, more or less academic

Here is a slightly annotated list of articles I have published; mainly academic texts. I'll sometimes refer to one or more of these in blog posts; sometimes you'll find a blogpost dedicated to a comment of one of the texts. Not all are too academic in style to be impossible to read for non-academics! Like most academics, the number of topics I am interested in, are far fewer than the number of articles I have written, and most of the topics will probably be of interest to any music fan.
For a comprehensive list, and some downloadable texts, check my profile on :
I will update this section from time to time.
