Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


The European Music Archaeology Project (EMAP – has involved creating reconstructions of ancient musical instruments, requiring photographic visual inquiries and representations to be made out of the musical instruments produced. Images went beyond the traditional observational and illustrative uses of photographic practices - with a brief that challenged photography as an archaic practice: to explore new cultural and technological shifts within current photographic research methodologies, processes and Image production workflows, to creatively and critically expand the possibilities of photographic practice in order to capture, reproduce and communicate visually the sound, spirit and memory of the ancient musical instruments photographed, to call to mind the sounds and ancient cultures and represent the research project in impact and dissemination activities.
