Abstract and Keywords

In a chapter that takes its point of departure in a prophetic citation concerning sound and music by Francis Bacon, Petter Dyndahl examines how different epistemological positions and metaphors can contribute to the imagination and understanding of musical knowledge and learning. Dyndahl’s main focus is on discourses regarding these subjects, and he considers how knowledge in music both consists of, and is expressed by and communicated via, musical imagination. In doing so, Dyndahl discusses how different kinds of metaphors and tools are central to learning in general and how the presented approaches and perspectives, in terms of music and music education, are relevant to learning communities and to educational and professional fields of music.

Keywords: music education, learning, conceptualization, epistemology, knowledge, music technology
