Michael A. Bane is visiting assistant professor of music in musicology at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
His research centers on the music and culture of early-modern France. A former Fulbright scholar, he has published widely on French music, with articles appearing or forthcoming in the Cambridge Opera Journal, Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music, Journal of the Viola da Gamba Society of America, and Oxford Bibliographies in Music.
Bane’s current projects include a book exploring the concept of ease in early-modern musical thought and a modern edition of François Martin’s Pièces de guitairre, à battre et à pinser (Paris, 1663), to be published by the Web Library of Seventeenth-Century Music.
He is the 2018-19 recipient of the Claude V. Palisca Fellowship in Musicology, awarded by the Renaissance Society of America for research travel abroad.
