In August of 1969, a dairy farm in the state of New York hosted a pivotal moment in the history of pop music. Taking place only two years after the „Summer of Love” and one year after the tumultuous events of 1968, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair put an exclamation point on the transformational decade of the 1960s.

CFP Surrealism and music in France

surrealismfranceSurrealism and music in France 1924-1952: interdisciplinary and international contexts

Senate House, University of London, Friday 8 June 2018
Paris was the principal centre of surrealist activity and the focus of connections between surrealist literature, ethnology, sociology, visual arts and music. The links between surrealism and the emerging disciplines of ethnology and ethnomusicology redefined the concept of exoticism in France and were the subject of a good deal of polemical debate. However, connections between surrealism and music have been little explored, although it is clear the movement had a decisive influence on major French composers such as Pierre Boulez, Olivier Messiaen and André Jolivet. This study day initiates a transdisciplinary and international dialogue and will situate music at the heart of these debates. The day will end with a linked piano recital by the outstanding young pianist Alexander Soares. CFP Surrealism and music in France weiterlesen

The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)

International Conference “From New Spain to Mexico: The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)”
4-5 December 2017

Campus Antonio Machado, Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, Baeza, Jaen, Spain

Program
In 1917, the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States was promulgated. That year also witnessed the publication of the first history of music in Mexico: El arte musical en México by Alba Herrera y Ogazón. The year 1917 is, therefore, not only the starting point of a new Mexican constitutionalism but also that of the nascent historiography of Mexican music. In addition, it is a point of arrival that allows us to pose, in contrast to traditional historical narratives, a retrospective view of Mexican music from that time back to 1517, when the expedition of the Andalusian conquistador Francisco Hernández de Córdoba reached the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
