Invisible Republic: Music, Lettrism, Avant-Gardes – International Conference on Music, Avant-Gardes and Counterculture
CFP deadline: May 25
Conference dates: October 25-27
University of Lisbon, School of Arts and Humanities and Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT)
In Invisible Republic: Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes (1997), Greil Marcus charts a countercultural sound map, a kind of laboratory where a new language is being forged. This is where, Marcus argues, we can locate the true voice of the century, a new consciousness, the alchemy of an undiscovered country. From this starting-point, we propose a journey into the tangled relationship between music, the avant-gardes and counterculture. CFP Invisible Republic : Music, Lettrism, Avant-Gardes weiterlesen
