Reading Analogically: Thinking About Music As A Landscape

“Landscapes like ours were created by and survive through the efforts of nobodies. That’s why I was so shocked to be given such a dead, rich, white man’s version of its history at school. This is a landscape of modest hardworking people. The real history of our landscape should be the history of the nobodies.”
– James Rebanks, The Shepherd’s Life:
Modern Dispatches from an Ancient Landscape
(2015, p. 19)
