CFP Material Cultures of Music Notation

Material Cultures of Music Notation
CfP deadline: 1 October 2017
Conference date: 20 – 22 April, 2018

Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands

With invited speakers, Roger Moseley (Music, Cornell University), Beth Williamson (History of Art, University of Bristol), and Kiene Wurth (Languages, Literature and Communication, Utrecht University)

However, this begs the question of how to conceptualize the role of musical writing, representation, and visualization in the cultural practice of music.

17th International Music Theory Conference

The aim of the annual conference ‘Principles of Music Composing’ is to foster theoretical thought that is essential for compositional practice and education of composers.

Intuition often alters the realization of rational scheme, model or archetype chosen by the composer. Meanwhile rational revision may improve intuitive improvisation, sonorous vision, or the artistic idea. CFP PRINCIPLES OF MUSIC COMPOSING weiterlesen
