In the tradition of the autobiography/memoir, Kato Hammond opens up for the first time about the inside stories of his life growing up in the legendary musical genre of Go-Go, which is still going strong today. He exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as a guitarist, actor, dancer, and playwright through bands such as Pure Elegance, Little Benny & the Masters, and Proper Utensils to being the godfather of Go-Go Media. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationships and reveals an ultimate story of endurance that started in the 1970s with a young Kato, a kid who, despite negative statistics, took bold steps and sacrifices through lessons learned. Kato takes you through a personal look into a human story through the Go-Go music culture, the people who inspired him, the ones who enabled him, the ones who tried to control him, the ones who changed him, the ones who gave him opportunities, and the ones who tried to take them away. Take Me Out to the Go-Go is a whole story: a loner´s story, a musician´s story, an actor´s story, a writer´s story, a recovery story, a love story, a success story, a failure story, a visionary story, and a reconstruction story. 1.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the basics of Hindustani music and the associated signal analysis and technological developments. It begins with an in-depth introduction to musical signal analysis and its current applications, and then moves on to a detailed discussion of the features involved in understanding the musical meaning of the signal in the context of Hindustani music. The components consist of tones, shruti, scales, pitch duration and stability, raga, gharana and musical instruments. The book covers the various technological developments in this field, supplemented with a number of case studies and their analysis. The book offers new music researchers essential insights into the use the automatic concept for finding and testing the musical features for their applications. Intended primarily for postgraduate and PhD students working in the area of scientific research on Hindustani music, as well as other genres where the concepts are applicable, it is also a valuable resource for professionals and researchers in musical signal processing.
