Sound, Music, And The Moving Image Conference

Institute of Musical Research Senate House, University of London 10-12 September 2007

Call for papers, compositions, and round table discussions

The conference theme is “Sound, Music and the Moving Image’, and we intend this in the broadest possible sense. Bringing together practitioners and scholars from various disciplines, the conference will provide the opportunity to reflect on and challenge prevailing approaches to the sound/music and moving image relationship, and also to propose new directions in this dynamic field. We hope that submissions will reflect work being carried out in the widest variety of musical traditions, cultural contexts, and methodological approaches.

The conference will take place between Monday 10th and Wednesday 12th September 2007 at Senate House, London, United Kingdom.

Keynote addresses will be provided by Professor Anahid Kassabian (University of Liverpool) and Professor Richard Dyer (Kings College, London).

There will also be a keynote interview and composition masterclass with Academy Award nominee Dario Marianelli (Pride and Prejudice, V for Vendetta). Further details about entry for the composition masterclass appear below.

The conference immediately precedes “Musicology and Recordings’, the combined CHARM (Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music) and Royal Musical Association annual meeting (13-15 September, Royal Holloway, University of London).

The programme committee comprises: Julie Brown (Royal Holloway University London) David Cooper (University of Leeds) Annette Davison (University of Edinburgh) Miguel Mera (Royal College of Music) Albrecht Riethmueller (Institut fur Musikwissenschaft, Berlin)
