Dr Paul Carr was recently involved in a book launch for the Oxford Handbook of Music and Virtuality, edited by the late Sheila Whitley and Shara Rambarran. In addition to providing a chapter for the collection on Frank Zappa and Virtuality, Dr Carr was also responsible for editing a discussion chapter, where a number of academics contributing to the book give their perspectives on how music can be considered virtual. The book launch was proceeded by a panel discussion at the International Association of Study of Popular Music UK/Ireland conference in Brighton in September 2016.
