The sixth volume of Musica Asiatica is a collection of essays on the music of East Asia. Four essays are dedicated to documents from the past: fifth-century Korean tomb paintings; tenth-century Chinese scores for lute; eighth-century Japanese documents; early Chinese sutras on the perception of sound. The remainder concern contemporary documents: the notations of the Japanese end-blown flute and lute and their relationship to performance; acoustical analysis of contemporary shakuhachi. The focus on musical documents provides a unifying thread which renders this volume unique in the ethnomusicological literature on East Asian music.Marett, Allan is the author of 'Musica Asiatica 6' with ISBN 9780521390507 and ISBN 0521390508.
