About the Author

Joseph Lanza, who writes mostly about film and popular music, is perhaps best known for his pioneering and critically acclaimed book ELEVATOR MUSIC: A SURREAL HISTORY OF MUZAK, EASY-LISTENING, AND OTHER MOODSONG.

Reviews

"Elevator Music is a fascinating tour of the sonic inferno we all unconsciously inhabit."

---J. G. Ballard, author of Crash and Empire of the Sun
"Snobby musicologists ignore this fascinating topic, but I learned a lot while being well-entertained by Lanza's delightful book."

--Wendy Carlos, composer, soundtracks for "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Shining"
"Lanza takes background music seriously as both music and social utility. In doing so, he's written one of the few pop-history books that won't put you to sleep - not to mention the only one that dares to probe the very real connections between shopping-mall music and Devo."

--Entertainment Weekly
