Suggested topics for the conference might include: Staged contingency in music of the 1920s; Western music compositions that integrate improvisatory and participatory qualities; Influences of popular, and folk music (e.g. African American popular music, Romani music, music performed by non-literary cultures) on compositions of the 1920s; The reception of African American music on classically trained composers and performers; Performance techniques of the “historical avant-garde”; Performance as a ritual in theatre or ballet music; Participatory relationships between performer and audience in art music contexts; Preluding and extemporization techniques in the 1910s-1920s
