Call for Proposals
Observatoire interdisciplinaire de création et recherche en musique (OICRM)
La Faculté de musique de l'Université de Montréal
This Study Day takes as its starting point the music of composers of concert music in Quebec who, beginning in the early 1970s, became spellbound by the gamelan musical traditions of Indonesia, particularly that of the island of Bali. This day focusses on processes of transculturation and the aesthetic, political and ethical quandaries that they imply. The questions that might be posed with respect to the different repertories explored over the course of the day include: How is knowledge of the music of other cultures obtained? What mechanisms of translation or transcription come into play? What categories do composers and performers use to conceptualize their creative activity? Can an intercultural work be heard as a hybrid? How is the creative process shaped by regionally-specific artistic narratives? How can an ethics of representation of the non-Western in Western concert music repertoire be conceived?
We welcome proposals for 20-minute presentations that investigate the interactions between gamelan and western music or another form of intercultural art music. Please send a 250-word summary of your proposed presentation to jonathan.goldman -at- umontreal.ca. In your covering email, please give your full name and institutional affiliation (if applicable). The deadline for receipt of proposals is 23 February 2017.
This event is made possible through the financial support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
