"If music be the food of love, play on." (Shakespeare, Twelfth Night).
Music is not only a pleasure for the ear; it is the echo of the heartbeat, breath, and desire. Professor Döpp revisits music as the catalyst for dance, love, and sex. From the music sheet to dance and through instruments, music is the expression of our profound desires and most violent passions. The text revisits the history of music and art from the dances of the first men to belly dancing through to pop and electronic music. Music and Eros takes us on a time-travelling journey to discover the interaction of music and sex.
Hans-Jürgen Döpp taught for a number of years at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, where he held a chair of psychoanalytical interpretation, as well as the cultural history of erotic art. For the past thirty years, he has been an avid collector of erotic art and has gained international recognition through various exhibitions and publications.
