The Multivalent Voice in Transcultural Music-Making

11-13 April 2019, Istanbul
Technical University

Keynote speakers: Sandeep Bhagwati, Nina Eidsheim, and Denise Gill

Cosmopolitan Istanbul provides the ideal setting for focusing on vibrant intersections of Eurogenetic art music with tradition-based genres of contemporary Turkey, Asia, and North Africa.  In twenty-first century music, increasing numbers of practitioners are making conscious efforts to cross cultural boundaries by engaging in processes of mixing, collaborating, protecting, negotiating, and creating new music that draws inspiration from various traditions.  By facilitating free exchange amongst a diverse gathering of composers, ethnomusicologists, musicologists, performers, and theorists, we hope to attain deeper insights into ‘voices’ and their centrality in key questions of identity, aesthetics, and usage in inter- and trans-cultural music making.  

We invite proposals for papers (20 minutes), lecture/performance demonstrations (30 minutes), workshops (30 or 50 minutes), audiovisual work (up to 20 minutes), or panel sessions (90 minutes including discussion) that focus on transcultural music in relation to both physical and metaphysical voices, addressing mixtures related to maqam, raga, and other art traditions, as well as ‘folk,’ ‘traditional,’ and ‘low-technology’ musics. 

Languages of the conference (and for abstracts): English and Turkish.

Deadline: Please send a 250-word abstract to Argun Çakır – argun.cakir -at- – with the subject heading ‘Multivalent Voice-Abstract,’ by 30 September 2018, indicating the format of your proposal.  Abstracts for panel sessions should be 250 words for each contributor, as well as a panel description of 100 words.  We will announce acceptances by 1 November 2018.
