Historically Informed Soundscape: Mediating Past and Present (2017)

D. Linda Pearse

About this exposition

Imagine for a moment that we engage with early-music manuscripts only through inspection of the musical text, without any attempt to perform it. Imagine again that musicians who perform early music made no attempt to engage with the historical context and performance practice of the past. It is mind-boggling to consider what we would miss if we did not make these attempts through performative artistic research. Can we engage with auditory culture over time by using methods from early-music performance practice to create soundscape? Will the process and product of creating a historically informed soundscape provoke new conversations and generate a new type of knowledge to engage both scholars of auditory culture and audiences? We want to complement scholarly narratives that seek to better understand the sounds of the past beyond music itself by borrowing methods and models from early-music performance and adapting them to create historically informed soundscape.
