About this product
- DescriptionPerforming arts in most parts of Maritime Southeast Asia are seen as an entity, where music and dance, sound and movement, acoustic and tactile elements intermingle and complement each other. Although this fact is widely kwn and referenced, most scholarly works in the performing arts so far have either focused on music or dance rather than treating the two in combination. The authors in this book look at both aspects in performance, moreover, they focus explicitly on the interrelation between the two, on both descriptive-analytical and metaphorical levels. The book includes diverse examples of regional performing art genres from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. All case studies are composed from the perspective of the relatively new approach and field of eth-choreomusicology. This particular compilation gives an exemplary overview of various phemena in movement-sound relations, and offers for the first time a thorough study of the phemen that is considered essential for the performing arts in Maritime Southeast Asia - the inseparability of movement and sound.
