Publications of the ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology

ISSN 2198-039X / ISBN 978-3-944415-10-9

With the anthology ‘Music & Ritual: Bridging Material and Living Cultures’ (2013), Ekho Verlag launches a new series, Publications of the ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology. The anthologies always focused around a specific topic. Each volume is composed of concise case studies, bringing together the world’s foremost researchers on a particular subject, reflecting the wide scope of music-archaeological research world-wide. The series draws in perspectives from a range of different disciplines, including newly emerging fields such as archaeoacoustics, but particularly encouraging both music-archaeological and ethnomusicological perspectives.


The ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology was founded in the early 1980s by Ellen Hickmann, John Blacking, Mantle Hood and Cajsa S. Lund. The self-produced MAB – Music-Archaeological Bulletin / Bulletin d’Archéologie Musicale (1984-1986, 6 vols.) and the Archaeologia Musicalis (1987-1990, 6 vols.), are now reprinted as Special Edition vols. 1 and 2 of the Publications of the ICTM Study Group on Music Archaeology. The rare bulletins and journals reflect the initial prolific phase of the study group, which Cajsa Lund has called its ‘golden era’. They include summaries and abstracts of the first symposia as well as reports and articles shared among study group members.
