Music Performance Studies Today: “The Ephemerality of Musical Hearing”

Mar 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Zoom Meeting,

Given the ephemerality of performance, what are key issues behind the transmission of musical remembrance? How can we narrow the divide between what Diana Taylor calls the “archive” of enduring materials, such as texts, documents, and buildings, and the “more ephemeral ‘repertoire’ of embodied practice/knowledge,” such as “spoken language, dance, sports, ritual” and, we add, music performance?
