Adje Both was elected as chair of the Study Group and asked to establish a directory of members, post relevant information on the ICTM website, and organize future meetings and publications.
Directory of members
Currently, the study group is composed of about 20 members. In the contact list are about 60 researchers more, who expressed their interest, but are not necessarily within the ICTM. It is planned to establish the directory and make it accessible online this year.
It is planned to organize future meetings of the MASTG in the alternate years between the biannual symposia organised by the independent International Study Group on Music Archaeology (ISGMA), which have been held in Germany since 1998, i.e., the next meeting of the ISGMA is scheduled for 2008 (see www.musicarchaeology.org) and the next meeting of the MASTG for 2009. All researchers within the MASTG are welcome to attend the symposia of the ISGMA; researchers within the ISGMA must be members of ICTM when attending MASTG meetings. …
