Abstract

Today landscape and music interpenetrate in so many ways as taken for granted divisions break down, for example between classical and popular, performer and audience, environmental and composed sounds, music and noise. Site specific works, installations and interactive performance juxtapose music and landscape in ways which challenge established ways of understanding relationships between the two. This paper examines some of the ways scholars in musicology, social science and the humanities have understood the relationships between music and landscape. It concludes that we need to address the specific qualities of sound in music to engage with music and landscape in terms which connect directly with both.
