Sound Memories: Projekttreffen und Workshop

The collaborative research project ‘Sound Memories: The Musical Past in Late-Medieval and Early-Modern Europe’ (SoundMe) is funded by the HERA network (2016-19) and run by a consortium of music scholars from the University of Cambridge, the University of Heidelberg, Charles University Prague, the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, and Utrecht University. They are supported in their efforts by the singers of the Ascoli Ensemble (The Hague). The project investigates the genesis and early development of the concept of ‘music of the past’, which originated in 13th-century Paris, made possible by newly invented technologies of writing musical time. It traces the deployment of such music in the service of various political and religious agendas across Europe in a series of case studies ranging chronologically from the 14th to the 16th century. The meeting is part of the series of project meetings; the workshop (1-3 Dec) will focus on issues of material culture and the typology of sources involved and will include members of the Heidelberg SFB 933 ‘Material Text Cultures’ as well as external invited speakers.
