Deadline: November 1, 2016
University of Oregon School of Music and Dance, Eugene, Oregon
The goal of the musicking conference is to stimulate student and community interest in early music and historical performance practice studies by offering five days of academic scholarship, educational performance classes, and a variety of performances that will be free and open to all students and community members. Paper sessions will be organized around five specific topics :
"Beyond the notes" – challenging current ideas of performance, improvisation, and composition;
"With voice & pen" – improvisation vs. notation; rhetorica – improvisation, ornamentation, and variation;
Variation: from machaut to messiaen; improvisation & authorship.
In addition to the five panel topics, the conference invites proposals for participation in a round-table discussion: follow the money: early music, improvisation, and cultural heritage.
This year, the musicking conference also invites proposals for lecture performances. Proposals should be for programs 30-45 minutes in length, and should be designed to engage audiences in an informal and intimate setting. Proposals should include a short concert/lecture description and music selection, and should include an mp3 audio file or youtube.com link displaying the performer's musical ability
Applicants are encouraged to blur the academic distinctions of musicology, ethnomusicology, music theory, education, modern performance practices, historical performance practice, and other academic fields, and consider the conference topics through a lens of musicking, in all its possible facets. All proposals should be sent by Tuesday, November 1, 2016 through the musicking website. Please visit http://blogs.uoregon.edu/musicking/call-for-papers/ for complete submission instructions.
