Example text

Rather than thinking of them as performing groups as they had been at UCLA, I saw these groups as a means of helping to break down preconceptions about what might come up in the field. The first steps of learning someone else’s music begin naturally with a view and approach growing out of that particular cultural context, one very different from initial expectations. While there is no way to prepare one for all of the many different approaches to music that exist in the world, the experience of learning new musics would at least help in breaking down some preconceptions and thus better prepare the ethnomusicologist for study in the field.

Thus, the 2008 annual conference of the British Forum for Ethnomusicology at Cardiff University was held on the theme of “The Art of Music”—an intentionally ambiguous title that was designed to encompass the representation of music in visual art and a range of derivative concepts such as artifice, artifacts, and artisanship, but that did elicit a number of papers explicitly focusing on musical art or artists from an ethnomusicological perspective. As a contribution to such discussions, I would like to explore some of the issues that are involved in applying a Western-derived concept of musical art to a non-Western context—even one where Western musical norms and values have to a great extent been adopted.

It takes great confidence and knowledge of modulating possibilities to pull off a stunning coup like this. 1 Necdet Yaşar’s stunning modulation from Acemaşîrân to Evcârâ I once asked Yaşar if he could create a taksim in a makam he had never before heard, say, a historical composition from the Cantemir collection (Feldman 1988). He said that he would only need to study the score a little to grasp the character of the makam. Walter Feldman reports a similar story about Yaşar’s ability to recreate any historical makam.
