The Power of Musical Networks

February 21-22, 2018, Ghent
Orpheus Institute, Ghent (BE)
Deadline for proposals: 15 January 2018
Notification of acceptance: 19 January 2018

Networks are everywhere these days. In effect, the new information technologies are interconnecting all aspects of our world, enabling unseen levels of social, political and economic interdependencies that characterise our times. The notion of Networks has become an extremely powerful metaphor, serving as a cornerstone for understanding this new complex, interconnected world.

Networks have transformed the creation, production and dissemination of art such as to change its very nature as a cultural artefact or human activity. Such a powerful trope allows for a wider range of interpretations and development. Moreover, it can serve as the ideal bridge between conceptual considerations from the technological and scientific domains, and creative/compositional enquiries from the artistic field.

This seminar provides a forum for exploring these ideas and approaches, their commonalities and representations and for considering the wider creative and explanatory potential of networks.

Some questions we hope proposals will address are:

Presentations might relate to the following topics, among others:

Proposals are welcome from researchers in non-musical critical or scientific areas, especially from those dealing with models of Networks or abstractions based on Network theory.
