Clayton, Martin (2008) 'Toward an ethnomusicology of sound experience.', in The new (ethno)musicologies. Lanham, Maryland: Scarecrow Press , pp. 135-169. Europea: ethnomusicologies and modernities. (8).
In this chapter, I argue that ethnomusicology could benefit from taking more account of the ways in which human beings experience and interpret sound. Ethnomusicologists have tended to work at a metadiscursive level (writing words about others’ words), leaving the gap between musical experience and paramusical discourse under-explored. This chapter asks whether that situation can be changed and what may be gained by doing so, and is illustrated with an example of north Indian raga performance.
