REMA Early Music Day 2024
Early Music Llama: the last fantasti beast of Early Music?


The recent identification of an ostensibly extinct creature, presumed absent from our ethological narratives
for nearly a century, has unveiled a profound revelation. This rediscovery pertains to the last surviving adult specimen
of the Early Music Llama (lama psalteriensis), an enigmatic ungulate nestled within the Unicornid family.

Known since pre-Columbian times, information and depictions can be found in the most well-known medieval bestiaries,
as well as in numerous period paintings. Its physiognomy is quite unique: small in size, the Early Music Llama
boasts a pelt striped in seven colors, from Eosine Pink to Strawberry Pink, Mauve, and Blue, "even more beautiful
than those of the panther". It has elongated ears reminiscent of horns, and deep, obsidian eyes.

It is posited that the corporeal form serves dual functions – acting as both a resonating chamber and a receptacle
for desires. By gently percussing it, by subtly plucking the colorful coat, or even just bringing an ear close
to its stomach, it is possible to reveal an intriguing capacity: the ability to articulate any melody conjured
in one's thoughts at the very moment you think of it. This is how it is described in many period treatises.

This ethological and musicological revelation stands unparalleled, brought to light by the meticulous endeavors
of the REMA - EEMN team in the crypts of the Cathedral of Chartres, France, just a few weeks ago. Musicologists,
musicians, enthusiasts and scholars alike will have the opportunity to observe this extraordinary and exceedingly
rare animal, online and offline, starting from March 21, 2024, during the 12th Edition of the Early Music Day event.

REMA Early Music Day continues to be a democratic event. We created a communication kit, in English or French,
downloadable and fully customisable. It contains posters, as well as images
and templates to be shared on social media.
