Visions of Sound: Musical Instruments of First Nation Communities in Northeastern America (Chicago Studies in Ethnomusicology)
by: Beverley Diamond - M. Sam Cronk - Franziska von Rosen
0226144763 / 9780226144764

Book Description:
The most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the musical instruments of native people in Northeastern North America, Visions of Sound focuses on interpretations by elders and consultants from Iroquois, Wabanati, Innuat, and Anishnabek communities. Beverley Diamond, M. Sam Cronk, and Franziska von Rosen present these instruments in a theoretically innovative setting organized around such abstract themes as complementarity, twinness, and relationship. As sources of metaphor--in both sound and image--instruments are interpreted within a framework that regards meaning as "emergent" and that challenges a number of previous ethnographic descriptions. Finally, the association between sound and "motion"--an association that illuminates the unity of music and dance and the life cycles of individual musical instruments--is explored.Featuring over two hundred photographs of instruments, dialogues among the coauthors, numerous interviews with individual music makers, and an appended catalogue of over seven hundred instrument descriptions, this is an important book for all ethnomusicologists and students of Native American culture as well as general readers interested in Native American mythology and religious life.
