Whereas it is a commonplace in Western Art Music, particularly since the mid-ninteenth century, to imagine music representing landscape, the notion that landscape is in some respects formed by music is relatively untheorised. With reference to music by Vaughan Williams and Webern, this essay investigates the ways in which music plays a role in forming landscape, understood from a contemporary geographical perspective as a site where nature and culture ancounter and produce one another (rather than as a site privileging one over the other). Drawing on ideas of Lefebvre, Smalley, and Appleton some theorisations of the broader epistemological and ideological tropes organising the landscape-music relationship are proposed. That landscape and music are both mediated in embodied ways positions the active, embodied, creative experience as an articulation of nature-culture through which these tropes are played out.
