Between Court and City:

Soundscapes of Power in East and West (15th – 17th Centuries)

Online workshop

5 February 2021

In ritual and in everyday life, sound is an essential means of representing power. Sound has a special potency, and rulers like the Habsburg emperors, the Ottoman sultans and the dukes of Burgundy knew how to exploit it. Music, as well as various other acoustic expressions, served as a status symbol, casting a special spell on the listeners, whose aim was to win them over to the rulers and convince them of their distinctive positions. With this musical accompaniment, they announced their sacred, political, and military power, incorporating the audience into the performance.

The workshop “Between Court and City: Soundscapes of Power in East and West (15th – 17th Centuries)” focuses on these soundscapes of power. The workshop, organized by the SNSF project “The Sound of Power: Sounding as Intermedial Category of 15th to 17th Century Court Festivity Rituals in an Intercultural Perspective” (University of Bern), will take place on 5 February 2021. The first workshop “Sonic Rituals: Ottoman, Habsburg & Burgundian Festivities (15th – 17th Centuries) From an Intermedial Perspective” held on 4 – 5 September 2020 emphasized the interplay of intermediality and ritual with particular attention to Ottoman court culture. The second workshop examines the relationship between sound and politics in Habsburg-Burgundian cultures, as well as some of the interim stations on the way to Istanbul. The workshop will explore selected centres of power in and outside urban spaces. The power of sound, in courts and cities, will be the focus of our studies. Lecturers from Istanbul, Bern, Basel and Long Beach (CA) will approach the topic from a wide range of different disciplinary and time perspectives.

The workshop will take place via video conference, and thus offers the possibility to engage in conversations across many different locations. Interested persons who would like to join the workshop as listeners and discussants are welcome.

Prior registration is required to attend this online workshop. If you are interested, please register via shared link (https://bit.ly/3o1BlKD) or QR code by 31 January 2021 (Sunday) at the latest. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. For technical reasons, the number of participants is limited.

Sacred Sound – Musikalische Manifestationen des Sakralen zwischen Theorie und Praxis. Internationale und interdisziplinäre Tagung

Musikwissenschaftliches Institut der Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen Exploration Full Fund Sacred Sound (Exzellenzinitiative und –strategie) 04. – 06. März 2021

Für Religionen bildet die musikalische Dimension des Klingenden einen wesenhaften Bestandteil. Damit geht ebenso oft eine Sakralisierung des Klanglichen einher. Die Untersuchung von musikalischen Manifestationen des Sakralen innerhalb des Forschungsprojekts konzentriert sich auf drei exemplarische Wirkungsfelder:

Kontinuität und Wandel Liturgie – Kommunikation – Transzendenz Sacred Sound – Sacred Space

Differenziert erschlossen werden soll das Gemeinsame ebenso wie das Trennende, jenseits vorschneller Postulate von Gemeinsamkeiten oder Unvereinbarkeiten. Der Diskurs über das Verhältnis der Religionen zu Musik und Kunst in Geschichte und Gegenwart kann dabei eine Ebene auch zum interreligiösen Dialog öffnen.

Principal Investigators: Prof. Dr. Stefan Morent (Sprecher der Initiative) Prof. Dr. Robert Horres Prof. Dr. Volker Leppin Prof. Dr. Heike Oberlin Prof. Dr. Johanna Rahner Prof. Dr. Thomas Schipperges

Die Tagung findet online statt. Anmeldungen bitte an This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tagungssprachen sind Deutsch und Englisch.
