The organisers are looking for a number of presentations, which explore and relate to current theoretical and philosophical positions on British contemporary classical music of the last decade. Critiques based on aesthetic principles, compositional techniques, and new sound-timbre are welcome, especially on the younger generation of British composers born around the 1970s.

Interests are also directed – and not restricted – to the way of promoting British living composers within the art-business, music publishing and recording industry, particularly in the recent times where the media industries are becoming very influential, taking over more control from the traditional record companies.

The Music of Simon Holt

The Institute of Musical Research in collaboration with London College of Music presents

The Music of Simon Holt

A one day symposium to celebrate his music with concerts and lectures


Convenors: Dr. Martin Glover, Mr. Osvaldo Glieca

Venue:  Chancellor’s Hall, Senate House

Date:  21th May 2013

Time: 2.00pm to 8.30pm

Keynote Speakers: Anthony Gilbert and Simon Holt


Call for Papers:

The symposium will convene to celebrate the music of Simon Holt, who is now widely recognized as one of today’s eminent British composers. Since the second half of 1980s he has gained considerable international recognition. Regarded in some circles as a ‘British expressionist’, his music is, none-the-less without obvious stylistic reference points; rather the listener is inevitably drawn into an innovative and profound experience of poetry in sound.

The organizers are looking for a number of high quality presentations on Holt’s music, whether in the form of analysis on particular works, exploration in broader terms of the new territories his music maps out or contextual studies that relate the music to current theoretical and philosophical positions on the music of today.

Proposals should be presented in the first place in the form of 300 – 400 word abstracts, accompanied by brief biographical notes on the contributor.

Proposals are to be submitted by March 22th 2013 by email to:

A one-day conference at the Institute of Musical Research,
London, in association with the RMA and CHOMBEC.
11th January 2013.
Papers are invited for a one-day conference to be held in January 2013, exploring relationships between music, the arts and the politics of national identity in twentieth-century Britain. Is it possible to evoke notions or concepts of national identity in music? Did the twentieth century present specific problems for musicians, authors, artists or other people involved in the arts? In what ways did the political and military conflicts of the twentieth century have an impact upon the ideologies and aesthetics of art?
We particularly welcome papers that seek to place music and other art-forms within their social, cultural, political or economic contexts. Papers are welcomed from all scholars, including postgraduate and early stage researchers.
Abstracts of 300 words (for 20-minute papers) should be submitted by the 30th of September to
