Abstract

This paper deals with issue of reconfiguration of musical tastes in consumer society. Nowadays music production is one of the most developed sectors in cultural industry. Various musical forms are often considered to be clearly reflective markers of social inequality, cultural identity and selectiveness in cultural consumption. Listeners can easily operate within a list of contrasting alternatives of musical pieces on all possible levels (e.g. genres, associated with highbrow, middlebrow and lowbrow culture). The article presents the results of the analysis of global social and non-social vectors, as well as social institutions which impact on process of cultural taste modifications. Musical tastes are expressing dichotomy of being both modifiers of cultural consumption on individual and group level and consequence of it.
