Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories – MuSA 2011

First call for papers: Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories – MuSA 2011, Baden-Baden, Germany, August 2011.

 

Proposals for sessions and individual papers for the Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories are invited from academics, practitioners and post-graduate students. The aim of the symposium will be to advance interdisciplinary investigations between the domains of music and other arts.

 

First, the organizers welcome presentations in ‘traditional’ subject areas such as historical/critical musicology, performance studies, aesthetics, analysis and ethnomusicology. Second, as the symposium’s title suggests, we hope to encourage the submission of papers investigating relationships (and possible tensions) between music and sonic/sound art. Third, presentations are also invited from scholars who are researching the connections between music and disciplines such as architecture, dance, performance, theatre, digital media, painting, theatre and literature.

 

All papers will be ‘blind’ peer-reviewed by the symposium conference committee and published in the conference proceedings.

 

The Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories, is a two-day event and will be held in Baden-Baden, Germany. The symposium will be held in English. The provisional dates are August 1-2, 2011. MuSA 2011 is part of the InterSymp 2011 Conference. Please see: http://www.iias.edu.
