The Introduction to Volume 2 of The Oxford Handbook of Sound and Imagination serves three purposes. First, it broadly sets out the aims and arc of the handbook and in particular its multidisciplinary scope. Second, it describes the handbook’s genesis and the principles that guided its development. Third, the Introduction lays out the content of each of the five parts of the second volume (“Musical Performance, " “Systems and Technologies, " “Psychology, " “Aesthetics, " and “Posthumanism”) and briefly summarizes each chapter.
