Mental Illness and the Musical Metaphor in the First Movement of Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique.

Joseph Straus is a music theorist specializing in music since 1900. He has written technical music-theoretical article, analytical studies of music by a variety of modernist composers, and, most recently, a series of article and books that engage disability as a cultural practice. Many of his books and articles have received publication awards from the Society for Music Theory (SMT), of which he was President from 1997–99.

Disability, understood as culturally stigmatized bodily difference (including physical and mental impairments of all kinds), is a pervasive and permanent aspect of the human condition. While the biology of bodily difference is the proper study for science and medicine, the meaning that we attach to bodily difference is the proper study of humanists. The interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies has recently emerged to theorize social and cultural constructions of the meaning of disability.

Although there has been an astonishing outpouring of humanistic work in Disability Studies in the past ten years, there has been virtually no echo in musicology or music theory. Sounding Off: Theorizing Disability in Music is the first book-length work to focus on the historical and theoretical issues of music as it relates to disability. It shows that music, like literature and the other arts, simultaneously reflects and constructs cultural attitudes toward disability.

Sounding Off: Theorizing Disability in Music promises to be a landmark study for scholars and students of music, disability, and culture.
