Abstract

Our ears are not isolated from our other senses, but work in conjunction with them to maximise our chance of survival and to make sense of our world. However, the growth of specialisation in artistic practice and theory means that disciplinary-specific practices have, over time, tended toward silos, isolating themselves from each other by their specialist training institutions, funding bodies and artistic and industrial practices. The advantage of separation was to enable the analysis of structures and form through particular lenses or frameworks, and to create highly specialised ‘experts’ in areas such as visual arts, dance, drama and music. This ensured high quality within that paradigm, but, in an era of convergence in which we now find ourselves, new phenomena arise, one being the transdisciplinary musician. For such an approach, fresh concepts emerge, and new skill-sets and techniques are needed. This article attempts to identify some of these.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
