MUSICAL IDENTITIES, KNOWLEDGE, AND EXCHANGE IN THE ARCHAIC GREEK MEDITERRANEAN (700-480 BCE)

Project description

Materialism of ancient Greek musical objects

Approaching ancient Greek figural pottery with new methodologies, the EU-funded MIKE-AGM project will conduct the first extended analysis of musical regionalism and exchange in the Archaic Greek period (700-480 BCE). Specifically, the project will focus on the trade distribution of pottery, which will be used as proxy for routes of musical exchange. Considering music as one of many invisible commodities in ancient Greece, the project will look at musical instruments as evidence for the social lives of those who made, played, and listened to them, and the ways that individual instruments held different meanings in various regions. The findings will shape a system focussing on the materialism of musical objects.
