MetadataShow full item record
The effects of the introduction of new methods to encounter music in the globalized social sphere are difficult to follow as they are continually in the process of change. Humans are recurrently encountering musical traditions through a new lens, forged by their shifting and continually adapting reality. This capstone will address the role of technology as a mediating factor in the transmission of Indian classical music. This research will examine these issues in order to understand technological effects as it specifically pertains to Hindustani music, the classical musical tradition of North India. This study takes a historical approach to explicate the traditional methods of learning Hindustani music through oral transmission and apprenticeship and looks forward into new methods of transmission shaped by the current context of encountering and understanding the music. This research is relevant to the Arts Management field in that it will provide implications of appropriate representation methods for cultural programmers involved in Hindustani music education.
