Music and Power in the Long Nineteenth Century

Siena, Accademia Musicale Chigiana

2-4 December 2021, Siena

Call for papers

The use of the arts, including music, as an instrument of representation and exercise of power, is widely debated within the context of the society of the ancien régime and the twentieth century, with frequent emphasis on absolutism and dictatorships. This conference aims to investigate this issue in the “long nineteenth century” (c. 1789-1914): the age of the Industrial Revolution, liberalism and social conflicts, nationalism and colonialism.

The geographical scope considered is the Western world (Europe and the Americas), including those extra-European territories subject to or influenced by colonial rule. The entire field of musical experience will be considered, without limitations on genre, from sacred to instrumental music, from musical theater to song and beyond.

“Power” is understood not only in a strictly political sense, such as state power, or as the domination of one nation or ethnic group over others; instead, in light of contemporary and emerging historiographical and philosophical debates, the scope of the concept extends broadly to all aspects of social life in which relations of dominion/submission are significant. By way of example, the following types of relationships might be considered: those between social classes, between economic powers, between religious affiliations, between genders, within the family, and others, in all possible combinations and permutations.

Proposals to further broaden the field of investigation are welcome; preference will be given to those that combine a breadth of conceptual horizons with a rigorous presentation of unpublished sources.

Possible topics for consideration include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Musicians and power
  • Musical practices as instruments of power and organizations of consent
  • The language of power in musical material
  • The use of music and entertainment in celebration
  • Symbolic representations of power relationships in opera
  • Sacred music as an expression of power
  • Song and choral music as a means of exercising and negotiating power
  • Folk, popular, and dance music within an increasingly powerful music industry
  • Negotiations of power in discourses about music
  • Domain relationships in musical education

The official languages of the conference are English and Italian. A selection of the conference papers will be published in the 2021 volume of Chigiana. Journal of Musicological Studies (https://journal.chigiana.org/).

Please send proposals to chigiana.journal@chigiana.org by 30 November 2020.

Proposals should include:

  • Title of paper
  •  Name of speaker(s)
  •  A proposal of c. 300 words

Papers should not exceed 30 minutes in duration.

Scientific Committee: Esteban Buch, Fabrizio Della Seta, Markus Engelhardt, Axel Körner, Massimiliano Locanto, Fiamma Nicolodi, Antonio Rostagno, Carlotta Sorba.

Organizing Committee: Susanna Pasticci, Stefano Jacoviello, Anna Passerini, Nicola Sani.

We are aware that the current scenario presents many uncertainties; we are constantly monitoring the situation and the measures that the Italian and other governments have put in place and we hope that by December 2021 it will be possible to travel, so that the conference may go ahead as planned and we can meet in Siena. However, if necessary, we will be running the conference online.

Meeting for Sound and Musical Instruments CO2019OC

8th International Scientific Meeting for the Study of Sound and Musical Instruments

CONGRESSO DE ORGANOLOGIA 2019 ORGANOLOGICAL CONGRESS

Belmonte, east-central Portugal

20-22 September 2019

Instruments of culture and peace

Many complain about the backstage, or invasive, pollution of sound in daily lives, and solutions? Social anxiety is mirroring short and long term influences, notably from birth, or even pre-natal effects through a stressed mother (scientific trends differ, precisely for this reason, we give here an opportunity for discussion, acknowledging it as a vast and often neglected issue). Many refer to “how life in Nature” is so beautiful, where we can play music in a perfect ambiance, but can’t or aren’t moving a finger to do something about it. We are doing it. We are developing a project that not only deals with the essential creativity in the human being but also the setting up of biodiversity in a balanced environment, where one can be thyself. All who visit us feel well here – why? This subject matter is far more important than it seems at a first glance. There is too much ‘noise’ in most people’s lives, too many front page headlines, too many characters on stage, too many spotlights, and everybody talks about all at the same time… we can’t listen to each, we can’t think about each… we need ‘silence’, reflection, to listen to life and art. Why are so many people frustrated and often depressed? Why so much illness with such highly developed medical support? Among many factors, the “sound quantity and quality” in our lives is fundamental. And that of music in our psychological and social balance too.

And – how music and creativity in sound can help a society in crisis? Fight fights, promote peace? How to help a society to be more united and less fragile? Can we, with our work, do better – and be part of the “positive productive” and not, as many do say, be the “useless” for the society? We are inviting you to discuss these and other prominent topics, which are intrinsically related to sound and musical instruments. Please come forward. In a society which is getting used to lightly give an opinion for anything and nothing in the social media, we invite those who “think” and – concretely “do something” – to visit, show, and think and do further.

From the morning of a bright Friday to an exquisite lunch on Sunday at the fabulous old Monastery, now a luxury hotel called Pousada de Belmonte, with concerts, recitals, activities, and full immersion Sessions, our program is quite promising. However, our special invitation to sociologists and musicologists had a good response in quality but not as wide, thematically, as we wanted it to be. There is still time, to make proposals and be part of this interesting gathering of people, who positively and openly discuss about the various issues that concern us all. We look forward to have more work presented that deals with the social impact of music and their musical tools, and studies about sound – for instance, how sound (acoustic and electronic) is affecting daily lives, our world.

You can have more information at the congress website, which is periodically updated: link [https://congressorganimusic.wixsite.com/co2019oc]

Or you can contact us directly: congressorg2019.animusic@gmail.com

Registration: besides the program (as listed above), it includes an active visit to an Exhibition of Musical Instruments (historical, traditional and technological), an unique bag with the program and materials, equipment and technical support, Wireless internet, coffee-breaks (nice and diversified), lunches (2), a banquet-lunch (gourmet), selected visits, reviewed publication (in the book series ‘Liranimus’, which contains essays on Organology, or online), certificate of participation, perhaps a memoir-gift, publishers, makers, restorers, and participants stalls, networking opportunities and, essentially, time reserved “on purpose” for constructive discussions and exchange of ideas. Note: group meals are optional.

All activities are open, namely recitals, concerts, demonstrations, workshops (within a registration limit), and visits. 

Registration fee

Early bird registration » 80€ for ANIMUSIC members (which has a symbolic registration fee of 20€, and no annual fees, no profit) / 110€ others (early bird registration until the 31st of August)

Regular » 120€ (ANIMUSIC) / 150€ (from 1st September)

Dayly fee » 40€ (does not include the banquet-lunch)

Banquet-lunch gourmet (for those friends accompanying, still a special price: 35€)

Other costs: Portugal is one of the less expensive countries in Europe. To give an idea, an expresso coffee costs about 0,70€ in a normal coffee-shop (it’s everywhere, this is the normal coffee, similar to Italia), or even less in automatic machines. Meals may be around 10€ (complete with wine, etc), including nice fresh grilled fish or vegetarian food. There are various options for lodging in Belmonte, you can check with the different available search engines or at Airbnb, averaging 70€ per night in a good hotel.

Transportation: You may use Porto’s or Lisboa’s international airports. From Porto, it is probably easier to rent a car, the rates, when booking from abroad, are quite low (you can have a car for 10€ a day or similar) and it’s basically all highway till Belmonte (if avoiding crossing Porto, you have: A4-A24-A25-A23; or crossing Porto: A29 or A1-A25-A23) which is very comfortable. The transportation from Lisboa is quite easy, also renting a car, or by public transportation: From the airport you take a taxi (5 to 8€)  or the metropolitan, to the Oriente station, which is near the River Tejo (beautiful place to visit if you have time, where the Oceanario is, plus other interesting sites). There, going up the stairs or lift, you check the line for Covilhã, usually trains are in time. If you pay online with anticipation (5, 8 or more days), you can even have a discount of up to 65%, if you are senior, it’s always 50%. The ticket to Covilhã, in the speed direct train, costs (as per today): 17,70€. Arriving in Covilhã, you can take a taxi (not expensive), a bus or meet with a group organised by us and the Municipality, on the 19th of September. If you have special needs, please contact us so that we arrange a special way for transportation. We work the best we can to help your experience be perfect and unique.

Portugal has been rated as the third safest country in the world, after Iceland and New Zealand. So, by visiting us, you shall discover more of this amazing country and meet fellows who are interested in your work, in discussing ideas and in moving forward. This is project Erdissol-ANIMUSIC.

Media of Hate: Representations of Religious Persecution and Repression in Early Modern Europe

3-4 October 2019

CENTRE FOR RESEARCH IN THE ARTS, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES (CRASSH), UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

Further details available from http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/events/28573

The religious turmoil of the early modern period saw widespread repression of minority religious groups across Europe, involving degrees of violence that prompted large-scale migration across national borders. Those suffering persecution at home often sought refuge in likeminded nations, yet in striking parallel to the refugee crises of today, migrant groups often faced considerable prejudice within their host nations (if not outright violence). Evidence for such religious prejudice can be found across the continent in a variety of media.

Media of Hate brings together scholars from the fields of early modern literature, religious studies, history, musicology, and art history in order to explore the various media used to communicate and represent discrimination and distrust towards religious minorities across early modern European contexts, from Dutch Protestant and French Huguenot refugees, to Jewish communities, and Catholic recusants. What distinctions, if any, emerge between singing discrimination, painting it, or writing a poem about it? On what were people’s fears fundamentally based (nationality, cultural habits, language)? Is it possible to discern similarities and differences in xenophobic material from country to country? What effect did hate speech have on policy-making and public opinion? Through this conference, we hope to delineate trajectories regarding hate in the early modern public sphere, arguing for the power that media could wield in shaping historical events and policies, as well as the considerable role that popular concerns about foreigners and belonging played in shaping the literature, art, and music of the period.

Agents and Actors: Networks in Music History

Sixth Sibelius Academy Symposium on Music History

Wednesday 3 June—Friday 5 June, 2020
Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland
Deadline for submissions: September 30, 2019

The Fifth Symposium (in June 2018) took institutionalisation as its theme in order to contribute to and clarify the ways in which they exert power, the relationships between then, and the hierarchies they establish. In the final plenary session, delegates debated a range of topics that might be given further consideration in the next symposium. The discussion largely focussed on two areas of interest – heritage and networks – and both were considered important current areas of work with which the next symposium could engage. It has been decided that the sixth symposium should concentrate on networks and music, while the seventh would focus on questions of heritage.

The Sixth Symposium on Music History will therefore focus on issues relating to agents, actors and networks and the ways in which they relate to music in order to discuss changes in focus towards more collective and complex objects of study.

Proposals for papers and group sessions are invited on any of the following topics:

  • The construction and formation of networks in music history
  • The history of networks in music from antiquity to the present
  • The power exerted by networks in music history
  • The institutionalization of networks in music
  • The theoretical underpinnings of working with networks (actor-network theory; art worlds, cultural fields, assemblages, mediation theory)
  • Close reading of musical scores against understandings of networks
  • The place of networks in diachronic and synchronic histories of music
  • The inner workings and dynamics of networks of music

The keynote speakers of the symposium are

Annegret Fauser (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, US)
Antoine Hennion (Mines ParisTech, FR)
Benjamin Piekut (Cornell University, US)

Proposal submission:
please use the link https://www.lyyti.in/networks2020-proposal and submit your proposal for an individual presentation or a panel by September 30, 2019.
The organizing committee will be in touch no later than November 4, 2019 with the information about acceptances.

Proposal length:

  • individual presentation proposals: max 2200 characters, incl. spaces;
  • panel session proposals: max 2500 characters, incl. spaces + each panelist’s proposal 2000 characters, incl. spaces.

Centennial Reflections on Women’s Suffrage and the Arts

CENTENNIAL REFLECTIONS ON WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE AND THE ARTS

Local : National : Transnational

An international, multi-disciplinary public conference

University of Surrey, UK, 29–30 June 2018

Keynote Speakers:

  • Irene Cockroft, author of Women in the Arts & Crafts and Suffrage Movements at the Dawn of the 20th Century
  • Elizabeth Crawford, author of The Women’s Suffrage Movement in Britain and Ireland

CFP: deadline for submissions 26 January 2018

Conference website: www.suffragecentennial.wordpress.com

The 2018 centenary of the Representation of the People Act (6 February 1918), which granted the vote to many women in the UK, yields an ideal opportunity for sustained critical reflection on women’s suffrage. This conference seeks to explore the artistic activities nurtured within the movement, their range and legacy, as well as the relationships between politics and art. In striving for an inclusive, transnational reach, it will at the same time seek to move beyond traditional emphases on white middle-class feminism and explore the intersections between the regional, national, and global contexts for women’s suffrage with specific respect to the arts.

While proposals addressing any aspects of women’s suffrage will be welcomed, this conference will focus upon three strands:

  1. Women’s suffrage in/and the arts
  2. Women’s suffrage in Surrey and the surrounds
  3. Transnational networks and flows of texts in relation to women’s suffrage

20-minute papers are invited on any aspect of these strands, including but not limited to:

  • Late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century women’s writing on suffrage;
  • Political reflections on the arts and the cultural sphere, e.g. in music;
  • Transnational networks and mobilities of political texts and ideas, incorporating suffrage movements in other countries;
  • Politically active individuals with strong links to Surrey (particularly in relation to the arts) e.g. Mary Watts, Dame Ethel Smyth, Gertrude Jekyll, Marion Wallace Dunlop;
  • Networks such as Ferguson’s Gang, Surrey Hills Group, Surrey Pilgrimage Group, and women who organised suffrage marches;
  • Sociological theories of women’s suffrage;
  • Contributions of women of colour to suffrage movements in Britain and globally;
  • Art (both historical and contemporary) inspired by women’s suffrage.

Proposals for panels of 3–4 papers (1.5–2 hours) are also warmly welcomed, as are proposals for one-hour roundtables of 3–5 participants. We encourage proposals from postgraduate students and independent scholars in addition to institutionally-affiliated established academics.

Planned activities include a panel discussion featuring artists who have been active in performing and creating works based on women’s suffrage and some of its key figures; and a recital of music and readings. We envisage that an edited publication will be developed from papers presented at the conference.

Abstracts of not more than 300 words should be e-mailed by 26 January 2018 to suffragecentennial@surrey.ac.uk. Decisions will be communicated to speakers by 23 February 2018. A limited number of student bursaries may be offered to offset costs of attendance.

Conference Committee: Christopher Wiley, Charlotte Mathieson, Lucy Ella Rose (co-chairs)

Principles of Music Composing: ratio versus intuitio

17th International Music Theory Conference

November 8th – 10th 2017

Vilnius, Lithuania

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. Sixteen conferences of this series have already been held in Vilnius. The 17th conference draws attention to the phenomena of rationality and intuition, which are considered to be contrasting yet complementary poles in the compositional process. 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.

The topic of the conference could be divided into suggested subtopics:

  1. Rational processes of composition and aural intuition (theoretical insights, definition, conceptions, typology)
  2. Musical work as the result of rational and intuitive creative activity (theoretical, historical and aesthetical aspects)
  3. Adaptation of interdisciplinary ideas in the compositional practice based on rational and intuitive origin
  4. Rational and intuitive qualities in new musical resources and techniques (sonorism, microchromatics, extended techniques, aleatory, electronics, etc.)
  5. ‘Rational’ and ‘Intuitive’ composers: features of their works and the creative process
  6. Phenomena of rationality and intuition in the contemporary compositional practice
  7. Lithuanian composers: between rationality and intuition

Paper proposals (abstract and a short biography) should be sent by email pmc@lmta.lt . The abstract must not exceed 500 words. The duration of full presentation is limited to 20–25 minutes.

 The main language of the conference is English.

The deadline for proposal submissions is August 20th 2017. Proposals will be reviewed by the members of the scholarly committee and all applicants will be notified of the outcome in the beginning of September 2017.

The participation fee is 20 Euros.

Selected papers of the conference will be published in the annual peer reviewed scientific journal ‘Principles of Music Composing’.

Music & Material Culture. From Medieval Times to the Present

MUSIC AND MATERIAL CULTURE. FROM MEDIEVAL TIMES TO THE PRESENT

One-Day Workshop
University of Cambridge, 7 December 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS

     During the last decade, many disciplines have been increasingly oriented towards the study of material culture, exploring the relations between objects and people. From different perspectives within the humanities and social sciences, this 'material turn' has emphasized both the materiality of objects, and their social life as bearers of cultural meaning.
     Music and sound studies have also seen a growing interest in objects and materiality, with approaches ranging from the relations of music and space, the technologies of sound production and consumption, and the materiality of musical notation, to the raise of 'materialism' as opposed to the 'idealism' that governed traditional musicology. However, these developments have taken place in a generally uncoordinated manner, and the purpose of this conference is to bring them together in such a way as to deepen knowledge and promote discussion of objects and materiality in music and sound studies.
     This workshop proposes to create a bridge between material culture studies and musical studies, exploring the wide range of objects that interact with musical practice and consumption, sound production, and the sense of hearing. The workshop has a wide regional and historical scope, ranging from Medieval times to the present.

Some of the topics that will be addressed in the workshop are:

–The theoretical and methodological challenges of materialism in musicology

–The social life of musical instruments: a new organology

–Scientific knowledge and ideas of the material in music and sound

–The body and the senses

–Mobility and cultural exchange

–Sonic materiality and immateriality of music

Abstracts of no more than 350 words should be sent both to af504@cam.ac.uk and vw261@cam.ac.uk by August 22, 2016. Please include title, name, institutional affiliation, email address, and a short biography (150 words). The Committee will notify applicants of the outcome by September 5, 2016. We welcome submissions for twenty minutes papers in English and in French. Due to time constraints, only a limited amount of papers will be selected. If you have any further queries, please contact the organising committee by emailing af504@cam.ac.uk or vw261@cam.ac.uk.
