lands occupy a fluid space. Coexistence is the only common feature that
can be applied to this kaleidoscope of continents, languages,
religions, ethnic groups, social and political structures, economic
activities and artistic patterns of behaviour and ways of life. In this
cohabitation—sometimes peaceful, often conflictive—we find a shared
diversity: the Mediterranean lands form a cluster of cultures that have
crossed, blended, and mutually influenced each other for millennia,
without losing their individual identities.
Music participates in this kaleidoscopic world. This conference, which marks the 10th session of the Jornades de Musicologia
organized by AVAMUS since 2005, aims to use music as the point of
departure for a collective exploration of how the peoples inhabiting
the Western Mediterranean have lived, how we continue to converse, and
what we what we can do in the future to restore harmony to each of the
lands and among the peoples bathing in our Sea.
All styles of music
will be considered: there will be no restrictions in terms of,
historical eras, genres and styles, or idioms. Interdisciplinary
approaches are welcomed, particularly those that bring together music
and any aspect of geography, linguistics, religion, anthropology,
sociology, … and other arts. Also we try to analyse the morphological
elements in the specific music languages used in the Mediterranean, the
overwhelming presence of foreign music and the unexplained but
suggestive absence of native music. Intercultural studies and
multidisciplinary experience will be of great interest. We hope to
meet each other empathetically, and learn to better know our musical
selves in order to foster improvement and change through music.
