Music is the “sound-evidence” of Europe’s ancient common roots.

Long before the Old Continent became known as Europe and before the presumed "history of music" began, musical instruments played a key role in creating a network of interconnections, cross-references and shared features among the various European cultures.
The European Music Archaeology Project (EMAP) is the first organic journey from the sounds of Prehistory through to traditions which still survive today, taking us from very early music to the present day composer and blending archaeology and art, science and creativity.

Meeting on the Ancient Hydraulis with concert
On May 20/21, a dozen music archaeologists came together at the Austrian Academy of Sciences to discuss recent developments concerning our knowledge of the ancient organ, both in terms of its manufacture and musical potential and in view of its historical contexts and development.
