51st International Musicological Colloquium Brno
Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic.
CFP Deadline: 30 Apr 2016
The Latin noun "artificium", in its numerous meanings, refers to art, craft, skill, talent and technology. Its derived adjective, "artificiosus", accordingly bears a variety of meanings, ranging from skill, which is a condition of each craft, to the artificiality and unnaturalness inherent in rational compositional systems or technologies. This term is thus paradoxically capable of encompassing almost opposing significations in relation to music. With this in mind further possible topics suggest themselves for discussion at the colloquium:
Music as a craft, music as a vocation, music as art;
Aesthetic issues of "high" versus "low" music;
Questions of rationality and irrationality in musical structure;
The relationship between music and technology;
Music in the age of machines and information technology / post-technological music;
Technologically generated / supported / mediated music;
Virtuosity as a product of industrial society / virtuosity versus sport, etc.
20-minute papers are welcome, with further time for questions (max. 10 mins.)
Proposals in English, containing the title and abstract of the paper (maximum length 900 characters) should be submitted by email, together with a CV of the proposer (max. 900 characters), to: colloq.brno -at- gmail.com
Deadline for submissions: 30. 4. 2016.
Notification of Acceptance: 31. 5. 2016.
Conference fee: CZK 1000 (active participation) / 500 CZK (active student participation).
