JNMR draws on disciplines ranging from musicology (music theory, aesthetics, sociology), psychology (from psychoacoustics to cognitive psychology – with emphasis on modelling), acoustics (including sound engineering), computer science (from signal processing to artificial intelligence), philosophy (epistemology and methodology) to brain sciences.

Min-Ad: Israel Studies in Musicology online
Vol. 11/2, 2013: Meaning and Style in Performance. (Please note that just four papers from the volume deals with performance subjects.)
Three articles and one book review will give the readers of this special issue of Min-Ad an initial idea of the varied subjects encompassed in the field of performance research. Dorottya Fabian’s and Uri Golomb’s papers deal with recordings of Bach music, but approach his music and its performance from contrasting angles, both in terms of repertoire and in terms of theoretical approach. Ron Atar’s paper examines the topic of the composer as a performer through an analysis of Béla Bartók’s two recordings of his fifteen Hungarian Peasant Songs. Eitan Ornoy reviews the Recorded Music volume of The Cambridge Companion series (Cambridge University Press, 2009).
