26-28 février 2017, Atlanta
Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia
Deadline: Oct. 1st, 2016
Events open to the GSU community will include keynote lectures by Robert Gjerdingen (Northwestern University), Panayotis Mavromatis (NYU), and Martin Norgaard (GSU), as well as a concert juxtaposing Carnatic music and improvisation in the European tradition, featuring Salem Shriram (voice) and Johnandrew Slominski (piano).
Program Committee: Francisco Gómez (Technical University of Madrid), Mariana Montiel (Georgia State University), Jay Rahn (York University), Chris Stover (The New School), Brian Wesolowski (University of Georgia).
Following the success of the Improvising Brain Symposia in 2013 and 2015, this conference will once again address improvisation from a variety of disciplinary perspectives: music cognition, neuroscience, education, ethnomusicology, and music theory. This year's theme, “Cultural Variation and Analytical Approaches”, stems from the growing scholarly interest in the empirical and music-theoretical study of world music traditions, the cognitive underpinnings of musical improvisation, as well as the study of historical documents related to improvisation in the European tradition. We encourage submissions related to topics including:
–The empirical study of musical improvisation
–The role of improvisation in oral traditions
–Improvisation as reflected in historical pedagogical documents
–The use of improvisation in training present-day musicians
Paper presentations will be 20 minutes in length. Please submit a 300-word abstract for both paper presentations and posters, with no more than 3 pages of supplemental materials (e.g., graphs, musical examples). We reserve the right to accept a paper-proposal as a poster. Proposals will be reviewed blindly by the program committee. Do not include the author's name or other identifying details in the proposal itself. Submissions must be received by Oct. 1st, 2016. Notifications will be made in November 2016.
Abstracts and supplemental material may be submitted here: http://www.gsucommunitymusic.com/ib/proposal-submission/
Papers with a world music focus will be considered for a peer-reviewed special issue in the Analytical Approaches to World Music Journal.
