#100DaysofPractice: Musicians Put Their Practicing Online

The accounts are a way for musicians to hold themselves accountable for consistent, productive practice and to receive feedback from other musicians.

Practicing, long an activity completed in solitude, with only a metronome and tuner as company, has now become its own sort of performance. Playing to a virtual audience has become one of the few remaining incentives for musicians who are otherwise holed up at home, away from their...

Recreating The Musical Instruments Of Ancient Mexico’s Lost Metropolis

Teotihuacán, which had a population of around 100,000 at its height circa 500 CE, seems to have had no system of writing and left behind no known written records. But musical instruments have survived — quadruple flutes, double-chambered water whistles and the like. Researcher Arnd Adje Both, whom one might call a paleo-musicologist, has had copies of those instruments made and is planning to bring them to Teotihuacán to be played. – The Economist
