« It is a common topos that Music is described as the art of the unseen. The focus of this conference is on the different and diverse models that, since the known beginnings of reflection about music, have been used to understand, illustrate and explain the power of music to influence human existence. Often allocated to a transcendental place, beyond the visual, many of these models adhere in their mode of construction, or in descriptions of their impact, to imagery – be it myths such as that of Apollo and Marsyas, or Orpheus, the 12th-centruy Sankrit Hindu poem Gitagovinda illustrated by Manaku and Nainsukh of Guler in the 18th century, cosmic constructions or landscapes that relate the “real” and visible with the “transcendental” and unseen. The conference will delve into materialisations of these models that theorise music and their visualisations in different media. »
