Increasingly, work in musicology and ethnomusicology has engaged more critically with material and embodied understandings of music. Studies in this body of work have developed new approaches to understanding musical instruments, to the human body as a musicking agent, to music as understood through embodied movement, and to music as a material technology.  Far from simply abandoning or rejecting the linguistic turn, we are interested in approaches that intertwine the discursive and material registers in seeking to understand what music or sound do, rather than what they mean
