Project C04

Epistemic Dissonances. Objects and Tools of Early Modern Acoustics

This project explores the disputes that arose within and between musical-acoustic praxis and theory between 1580 and 1690. It asks about the production of acoustic research objects and tools in the context of newly emerging institutions, scholarly networks, material cultures, and media technologies. The project focuses on three core areas of early modern acoustics: architectural acoustics and communication technology; instrument and tool making; and the anatomy of hearing and memory.

A list of publications and events organized by the project can be accessed on the German CRC 980 website.
