Music has long been theorised as intangible culture separate from the materiality of musical instruments. Moving beyond approaches that position musical instruments merely as containers for sound, this panel aims to rethink and reassess their material, visual, affective and social dimensions. Recent interdisciplinary ‘turns’ towards new materialisms, posthumanisms, sensorialities and object-orientated ontologies are opening up alternative theoretical and methodological pathways and perspectives for engaging with the material culture of music.
