The advent of electronic instruments, amplification, and recording at the start of the twentieth century, the explosion of pop music in the post-war period, and the digital revolution at the turn of the millennium have deeply changed the world of music.

Indeed, these
innovations have impacted every type of musical practice and sparked the
birth of new creative processes. Considering this phenomenon from a
historical perspective, the “Lutheries Electroniques”
conference—organised by the Cité de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris
in partnership with the Sorbonne University’s Collegium Musicae
institute—examines the latest developments in electronic
instrument-making and associated interactions with traditional
instrument-making, in the aim of bringing forth new methods for
exploring these instruments at the inter-disciplinary junction between
organology, the archaeology of techniques, the history of ideas, and
aesthetics.

Duration of talks: 20 minutes, conference languages: French and English
Proposals (2000 characters abstract), in French or English, must be
submitted to colloques -at- philharmoniedeparis.fr with a short bio (800
characters maximum) by 6 December 2017. The candidates selected by the
scientific committee will be announced in January 2018. To encourage the
participation of young researchers who are not necessarily affiliated with research
institutions, assistance with travel expenses can be considered for
selected candidates.

L’apparition de l’instrument électronique mais aussi des techniques d’amplification et d’enregistrement au début du XXe siècle, l’explosion des musiques populaires après-guerre puis la révolution numérique au tournant du millénaire ont profondément bouleversé le monde de la musique. Ces innovations ont touché l’ensemble des pratiques et favorisé l’éclosion de nouveaux processus de création.
En replaçant le phénomène dans son évolution historique, ce colloque proposé par la Cité de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris en partenariat avec l’institut de Sorbonne Universités Collegium Musicae interroge les dernières évolutions en matière de lutherie électronique et numérique mais aussi les interactions entre ces dernières et la facture instrumentale traditionnelle, dans le but de faire émerger des méthodologies neuves pour explorer ces instruments, au croisement de l’organologie, de l’archéologie des techniques, de l’histoire des idées et de l’esthétique.
