Chrónos : International Multi-Disciplinary Percussion Symposium

April 4 & 5, 2019, Brownsville
University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
School of Music, Brownsville, TX
Abstract Deadline: January 4, 2019

Chrónos is an International Multi-Disciplinary Percussion Symposium bringing together scholars, performers, pedagogues, and health and wellness professionals in an inclusive environment aimed at delving à l’intérieur of percussion studies and percussive processes.

Call for Presentations

UTRGV School of Music invites abstracts for its international, multi-disciplinary percussion symposium with keynote address by Dr. John Parks IV. We invite proposals for paper presentations, interactive sessions, or posters/exhibits addressing the following theme and perspectives:

The Art of Noise

In antiquity, life was nothing but silence. Noise was really not born before the 19th century. With the advent of machinery, noise reigns supreme over human sensibility. —Luigi Russolo (1913)

Reflective: “Primitive people attributed to sound a divine origin. It became surrounded with religious respect, and reserved for the priests, who thereby enriched their rites with a new mystery.”

Current: “To excite our sensibility, music has developed into a search for a more complex polyphony and a greater variety of instrumental tones and coloring. It has tried to obtain the most complex succession of dissonant chords, thus preparing the ground for musical noise.

Forward: “We must break at all cost from this restrictive circle of pure sounds and conquer the infinite variety of noise-sounds.”

Submission Guidelines

Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to silvia.lazo -at- by January 4. The abstract should include title of the paper, name of the author, institutional affiliation, short bio, and any A/V requirements. Invitations to present will be sent via email by January 21, 2019.
