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.
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:
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.”
Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to silvia.lazo -at- utrgv.edu 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.
