Rethinking Stravinsky: Sounds and Gestures of Modernism

Deadline: April 01, 2012

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

The University of Salerno (Dipartimento di Scienze del Patrimonio Culturale) and the Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini of Lucca/Pistoia (<http://www.luigiboccherini.org>), in association with the Observatoire interdisciplinaire de création et de recherche en musique (Montréal), the Fondazione Marino Marini (Pistoia) and the Fondazione Filiberto Menna (Salerno), is pleased to invite submissions of proposals for the International Conference «Rethinking Stravinsky: Sounds and Gestures of Modernism» to be held in Fisciano (SA) and Salerno, Campus Universitario and Fondazione Filiberto Menna, from Wednesday, from Wednesday 26 until Friday 28 September 2012.

The conference aims to articulate the present stage reached in both theoretical and historical research on Stravinsky, and to contextualise Stravinsky’s work within the debate surrounding Modernism, from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Why “Sounds and Gestures”? In recent years, Stravinsky’s music has increasingly been approached from historical and cultural perspectives. Some attempts have also been made to investigate its gestural and bodily dimensions, and its embodied cognitive aspects. The concept of musical gesture has received progressively greater attention in analysis, for instance.

The main objective of the conference, therefore, is to create paths of interaction  between new trends in systematic musicology, music analysis and historical and cultural approaches. The programme committee encourages submissions within the following areas, although other topics are also welcome:

 

Stravinsky’s music in cultural and historical context: East and West, then and now;
Sound, gesture and visual in Stravinsky’s music for theatre and other media;
Musical gestures and embodied music cognition in Stravinsky’s musical thought;
Negotiating Stravinsky’s modernism: critics and composers;
Stravinsky’s musical legacy;
Stravinsky’s writings;
Stravinsky’s works: analysis, new sources, sketch studies, compositional process.

 

The official languages of the conference are English, French and Italian. Papers selected for presentation at the conference will be published in a miscellaneous volume for the Speculum Musicae series (Brepols Publishers). Papers are limited to twenty minutes in length, allowing time for questions and discussion. Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words and one page of biography. All proposals should be emailed to operaomnia@luigiboccherini.org by no later than the ***1st of April 2012***. With your proposal please include your name, contact details (postal address, e-mail and telephone number) and (if applicable) your affiliation. The committee will make its final decisions on the abstracts by the 20th of April, and contributors will be informed immediately thereafter. Further information about the programme, registration, travel and accommodation will be announced by the 1st of May 2012.
