Resumo

The quest to reconstruct thestyles and histories of musical genres of the past is an old preoccupation. Since the 19th century, the orientalist imaginary contributed considerably to the notion of the existence of "origin-musics". Whether "Pharaonic", "Arab", or "Hindu", a common reference to the past, seen as prestigious and immutable, contributed to the rationalization of musical knowledge on the basis of constructed connections. The orientalist period being relatively well documented, this workshop is more focused on ways of speaking of and describing the past over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st.

Argument

The quest to reconstruct thestyles and histories of musical genres of the past is an old preoccupation. Since the 19th century, the orientalist imaginary contributed considerably to the notion of the existence of "origin-musics". Whether "Pharaonic", "Arab", or "Hindu", a common reference to the past, seen as prestigious and immutable, contributed to the rationalization of musical knowledge on the basis of constructed connections. The orientalist period being relatively well documented, this workshop is more focused on ways of speaking of and describing the past over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st. Bringing anthropologists and historians together, it encourages not only a particular emphasis on the process of recounting the past as-such, but also the specific processes involved the narrative’s construction. We will focus on constructs emerging from scientific disciplines like musicology and musical archaeology, and those playing out within artistic creation itself – both areas that are also tied in with local, national, and international political stakes.
