Les cordes métallisées d'instruments de musique, un exemple de circulation et d'innovation dans l'Europe du XVIIe siècle

Abstract : In the XVIIth century, the musical sphere undergoes deep transformations, be it in the field of writing, performance or the type of instrument in use. During that time is invented a new kind of string weighted with metal and it first occurrence is found in Marin Mersenne's Harmonie Universelle (1636), written in the context of a prevalence of ancient Greek texts. Spreading in the whole of Europe, wound strings attract the attention of musicians and scientists, and their descriptions reveal the type of materials as well as crafting techniques. This study is an opportunity to map, at European, regional and local levels, the relations between makers, musicians and scientists around musical practice and its instruments. It draws complex networks which, if different in shape one level to another, keep the invariant of interpersonal links, and more generally, of how its actors meet.
