Vocality Symposium

University of Virginia, April 6-7, 2007

While singing is ubiquitous in most music worldwide, neither music
scholarship nor vocal pedagogy offers a standard way to analyze vocal
sounds and thus the terminology scholars use remains inconsistent and
poorly defined. This workshop will bring together scholars of vocal music
to analyze sounds and production values and agree on terminology.  We will
be joined by scholars Heather Hadlock, Gabriel Solis, and Lara
Pelligrinelli, as well as an experienced popular music singer and studio
technicians of several genres of vocal music to lead discussion on the
singing styles they know best, as well as address analytical approaches
offered in central, difficult texts, such as Roland Barthes' The Grain of
the Voice and Theodor Adorno's The Curves of the Needle.
