The Music of Crafts Exhibition came from a collaboration between Qasr Al Hosn, the House of Artisans, New York University Abu Dhabi, and the Music and Sound Cultures (MaSC) Research Group. The Music and Sound Cultures (MaSC) research group is a collective of researchers focusing on the multidisciplinary study of music from the Gulf, having as a primary goal the study and dissemination of music from this region. The group currently hosts several projects that range from the preservation of collections of field or rare commercial recordings, to developing innovative ways of conducting musical heritage analysis, preservation, and dissemination.
