Far from being a recent invention, cross-disciplinary thinking in the arts goes back at least to ancient Greece. The more recent history of cross-disciplinary thinking in music is referred to, and the author’s own history of cross-disciplinary work is considered. The point is made that music and sound works should be co-equal partners in any collaborative relationship, and the necessity for new venues for this work is discussed.
