A snapshot of where we stand in early music and where we are heading.
Music as an evolutionary process is a controversial subject that has only become a popular research topic in recent years.
We will approach this vast domain from four different perspectives, their respective connections, and their significance to historically informed performance practice.
Among the topics we will tackle are the evolution of the violin, the origins of music, the effect of music on our daily bodily functions, the development of music education and the crucial role of HIP in this process, and the sociological origins of music and its evolutionary purposes.
As part of the symposium our ’zamus: academy‘ participants and their teachers will present a concert connecting some of these theoretical ideas with practical concert experience.
The symposium will be moderated by Prof. Peter van Heyghen, who will lead an open discussion with all presenters at the end of the day.
Admission free – live on site and online via zoom In English.
Registration for free tickets for online or on-site attendance is required. Snacks and drinks available on site.
