In this Thursday Research Seminar, Caroline Bithell, Rebecca Herissone and Susan Rutherford will lead a discussion on the challenges posed by musicological and ethnomusicological research that focuses on musical activities that are primarily performance based, thus leaving less obviously physical traces than those where there is a strong focus on the production of a musical 'text', or resulting in texts that are clearly unrepresentative of what performers actually did/do in practice.
As part of the discussion, we will look at:
Bruno Nettl, 'I can't say a thing until I've seen the score: Transcription', in Bruno Nettl, The Study of Ethnomusicology: Thirty-One Issues and Concepts (2nd edn, Urbana, Ill.: University of Illinois Press, 2005), 74–91.
If you can take a look at this chapter in advance of the seminar, our debate will get off to a flying start! It is available via the library website as an eBook. Don't worry if you don't have time to read it, though: there will be plenty to talk about in any case. We look forward to seeing you there!
