Michael Bane

Visiting Assistant Professor of Music (Musicology)


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.
