8-9 March 2018, Paris
Deadline: December 6, 2017
Cité de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris
221 avenue Jean Jaurès
The advent of electronic instruments, amplification, and recording at the start of the twentieth century, the explosion of pop music in the post-war period, and the digital revolution at the turn of the millennium have deeply changed the world of music. Indeed, these innovations have impacted every type of musical practice and sparked the birth of new creative processes. Considering this phenomenon from a historical perspective, the “Lutheries Electroniques” conference — organised by the Cité de la musique-Philharmonie de Paris in partnership with the Sorbonne University’s Collegium Musicae institute — examines the latest developments in electronic instrument-making and associated interactions with traditional instrument-making, in the aim of bringing forth new methods for exploring these instruments at the inter-disciplinary junction between organology, the archaeology of techniques, the history of ideas, and aesthetics.
Duration of talks: 20 minutes, conference languages: French and English Proposals (2000 characters abstract), in French or English, must be submitted to colloques -at- philharmoniedeparis.fr with a short bio (800 characters maximum) by 6 December 2017. The candidates selected by the scientific committee will be announced in January 2018. To encourage the participation of young researchers who are not necessarily affiliated with research institutions, assistance with travel expenses can be considered for selected candidates.
