About this book

Systematic Musicology is a highly interdisciplinary field, which it was ever since its ancient origins with philosophers like Pythagoras, Archytas of Tarrent or Aristoxenos. Here the connection between music, mathematics, geometry, astronomy, well-being, politics and other fields were discussed. Today the topics discussed in Systematic Musicology range from Musical Acoustics and Musical Signal Processing, Music Psychology and Neuromusicology, Music Ethnology and Comparative Musicology, Musical Syntax and Philosophy to Musical Applications in modern music production and distribution, next to many related topics. Still the aim of the discipline is to understand music, its production and perception, its cultural, historical and philosophical background in a systematic way. This cannot be done by discussing one aspect alone.

The Handbook of Systematic Musicology is trying to reflect this interdisciplinary nature of Systematic Musicology in seven sections. These sections follow the main topics in the field, Musical Acoustics, Signal Processing, Music Psychology, Psychophysics/Psychoacoustics and Music Ethnology while also taking recent research trends into consideration, like Embodied Music Cognition and Media Applications. Other topics, like Music Theory or Philosophy of Music are incorporated in the respective sections.
