This article examines the tensions surrounding the status of the Ottoman musical heritage in the context of Turkey's modernizing program, through the study of the transformation of the oral transmission process of music, from the late Ottoman through the Republican period. Employing the concept of mediation, this study aims to underline the complexities of the contemporary creative process in Turkish classical music, as a means of challenging simplistic readings of the relation between Turkish modernity and music, based on binary oppositions such as orality-literacy. Instead, this article situates this process in the 'in-between' spaces produced by Turkish modernity, tracing the continuities of the Ottoman musical tradition within Republican Turkey.
