The Ichos and Maqam parallels as Paradigms for Intercultural Communication in the Arts
Ichos and Maqam are parallel notions underlying the codification of modal phenomena in Greek Orthodox Chant and Ottoman Court Music. A number of music theoretical treatises from the 18th century onwards deal with extensive comparisons of Ichoi and Maqamlar. This talk will focus on the complementary aspects of the music theoretical systems of those two traditions. Furthermore it will point out the relevance of notions and practices in these traditions for contemporary developments in music and related arts, with view to combinations of traditional and avant-garde forms of expression within the context of experimental arts.
