Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to present the methodological program for studying the musical dimension of social life. The author introduces the new sociological-audial approach as a proposal for the broadly understood studies of the musical dimension of social life. The article focuses on the specific nature of research on music and society. It lays out research postulates that constitute the methodological program for the sociology of music. In particular, the following issues are discussed: the interpretative approach to musical life, socio-musical memory, „appropriate ways of listening” and the contextual analysis of the socio-musical life, musical competences and aesthetic dispositions, the meaning of music and the communicative perspective in research on music practices. The author also analyzes the polythetic understanding of the musical process, the heterogeneous understanding of social life’s audial dimension and the process of rationalization of musical practices.
