This section describes the visual iconography in the headquarters of an amateur association to introduce the central theme of the following four chapters: the problem of revival. Contemporary practitioners of Andalusi music work with an awareness of past generations. This includes an awareness of the important role of early twentieth-century revivalists in establishing the contours of the contemporary practice. At the same time, the early twentieth-century revival raises questions about what it means to revive a musical repertoire. The following four chapters examine the project of musical tadwīn--of codification, documentation, or registration--as a form of metaphorical inscription that captures much of the pathos and paradox of revival.
