Conference & Publication Calls for Papers

Call For Papers
 

Music and Space

Deadline: February 01, 2012

Call for papers and lecture-recitals: “Music and Space”

2012 CUNY Graduate Center GSIM conference

The CUNY Graduate Center department of music is pleased to announce its 2012
Graduate Students in Music (GSIM) conference in New York City on Saturday and
Sunday, April 28–29, 2012. The theme for this year’s conference will be Music
and Space.

In addition to traditional paper sessions, the conference will include a
workshop/seminar for graduate students led by Professor Judith Lochhead of SUNY
Stonybrook entitled “The Places and Spaces of Music: Scholarship, Performance,
Composition” (more details below).

We invite graduate students to submit proposals for papers relating to the theme
of Music and Space. The theme is broadly construed and may include the following
subjects:

1) 1. Music and physical space – how are composers and/or performers using
space to create a unique listening environment?

2) 2. Music and geographical space – how do geographical surroundings affect
the composition and/or reception of music?

3) 3. Music and social space – how do cultures create spaces of meaning
through music?

4) 4. Music and abstract space – how can spatial models help us understand
how music works?

Presentations will be given a 30-minute time slot, with 20 minutes for the paper
and 10 minutes for discussion.

To submit, please send the following to tpasswater at gc.cuny.edu by February 1,
2012:

1) 1. A proposal/abstract of no more than 300 words in PDF format. Up to two
additional pages of musical examples and/or references may also be included
(though this is not required). The proposal should include the title of the
paper, but withhold any information that might identify the author.

2) 2. A cover letter, written as text in the body of the email, that includes
the title of the paper as well as the author’s name, institutional affiliation,
email address, and telephone number, plus a list of audio/visual requirements
for the presentation.

Performers and composers are also invited to submit proposals for
lecture-recitals. Composers are responsible for providing their own musicians to
perform their piece(s). Proposals for lecture-recitals should follow the same
proposal guidelines described above. Lecture-recitals are limited to 40 minutes.

We also invite students to apply for the workshop with Dr. Lochhead by sending
an email to tpasswater at gc.cuny.edu that includes the author’s name,
institutional affiliation, email address, and telephone number, and a 100–150
word statement detailing the student’s background and interest in the subject.
Below is Dr. Lochhead’s description of the workshop:

The Places and Spaces of Music: Scholarship, Performance, Composition

Dr. Judith Lochhead, SUNY Stonybrook

Concepts of place and space play increasingly important roles in music
scholarship, performance, and composition over the last half century. The range
of approaches to conceptualizing and realizing place and space is extensive, as
the following list suggests: Stephen Feld’s “acoustemology of place,” David
Lewin’s transformational spaces (which developed into Neo-Riemannian spaces),
spatialization of music composition through digital technologies, and
ecomusicology. In the seminar, we will consider these diverse approaches to the
places and spaces of music, contextualizing these approaches through a brief
historical and philosophical review and then considering how this diversity
might be put into a productive relation.
