Cash Rules Everything Around Me: Music and Money
2011 EMP Pop Conference at UCLA
Feb 24 – 27, 2011
Los Angeles, California
Jointly sponsored by Experience Music Project and the UCLA Department of
“The best things in life are free, but you can give them to the birds and bees,
I need money!” Motown founder Berry Gordy co-wrote it, Barrett Strong sang it,
and John Lennon’s vocal in the Beatles cover offered a fervent affirmation. By
the time Wu-Tang Clan recorded “C.R.E.A.M.,” however, chasing bucks in pop found
kinship more with high stakes gundowns and teens behind bars. For this year’s
Pop Conference, the tenth annual meeting and first outside of Seattle, we invite
presentations on a matter Los Angeles knows well: the relationship between song
and paycheck – or, to invoke the O’Jays hit “For the Love of Money,” bass line
and bottom line.
Topics can cover any era or style of music and may include, but are not limited
--Selling out: self-objectification and compromise, but also selling out as
breaking out-- codebreaking and innovation
-- The music industry, past, present, and (?) future, from records to radio and
retail; impresarios in idolatry; the current slump and pop through boom and
bust, affluence and scarcity
--Money, bling, “Life in the Fast Lane,” etc. as a topic in song and discourse:
how different genres view commercialism differently; charity and social
consciousness as rival impulses
--Class as operating force; profitable music and blurred hierarchy, the working
class and “Don’t Get Above Your Raisin’”-- how class-bound assumptions affect
--Los Angeles in the pop imaginary, a place that has never pretended music is a
solely artistic enterprise
--“Capital (It Fails Us Now)”: payola blues, the pervasive sense of the business
as (to quote Hunter S. Thompson) a “long shallow money trench” and distillation
of capitalism’s inequities
--Globalization and monetization: pop as international product, differing
national and regional approaches to music merchandising
--Patronage: sponsorships, institutions as support structures for pop, music in
--Financing musical production: the aesthetics of hi-fi -- as David & David once
sang, “all that money makes such a succulent sound”
The EMP Pop Conference, launched in 2002, joins academics, critics, performers,
and dedicated fans in a rare common discussion. The conference is jointly
sponsored in 2011 by the Department of Musicology at the UCLA Herb Alpert School
of Music and by the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum and Hall of
Fame. This year’s program committee members are: Jasen Emmons (EMP/SFM), Robert
Fink (UCLA), Gaye Theresa Johnson (UCSB), writer Maura Johnston, Josh Kun (USC),
Katherine Meizel (Oberlin), filmmaker Jim Mendiola, Ann Powers (Los Angeles
Times), writer-musician Tim Quirk, Jeffrey Rabhan (NYU), and biographer David

Minimalist music in opera and music theatre

among younger generations of composers are welcomed here. (See also the remark
