CFP: INTIME 2012 Symposium, ‘Notations’

In recent decades practice in the notation and performance of new music has continued to innovate and experiment. The nature of notation, its functions and uses as well as performers’ approaches to realisation and interpretation seem as open-ended as ever. In the digital age the dialogue between composer, notation and performer remains vital, and the collaborative process continues to take many forms.

This INTIME (Interrogations into Music Experimentation) 2012 symposium seeks to discuss and theorise current practice in these areas as well as to deepen our understandings of existing repertoires and traditions within new music, such as experimentalism and minimalism.

The organizers invite presentations on the theme of notation in new music and the relationships between it and composition, collaboration and performance, all understood in their widest sense. Abstracts are welcome from researchers and practitioners for papers in fields such as, but not limited to, music composition, music performance, musicology, music history, music analysis and theory, ethnomusicology, music psychology, the philosophy of music and music education.

Review I

By Helen Thomas

The SMA’s International Summer School aims to provide postgraduate participants with an advanced analytical toolkit for use in their research and teaching, and a forum for the exchange of ideas at an international level. It was launched last year in collaboration with the IMR and Wiley-Blackwell, the publishers of Music Analysis. Good news travels fast and this year 32 students from North America, Europe, the Middle-East, Asia and Australasia gathered in Durham for an intensive week of seminars and plenary sessions culminating in a symposium on ‘New Perspectives on Musical Form’. » Read more: 2 Reviews: Music Analysis Summer School 2010
