30 octobre-1er novembre 2016, Basel
Deadline for CFP: May 1, 2016
Web site 

Venue: Department of Musicology at the University of Basel, Switzerland

The conference aims to advance current musicological research in improvisation and art music of the first half of the 20th century. Although it will focus on the interwar period, relevant topics pre-dating WWI are also welcome. The preferred official languages of the conference are English and German.

Suggested topics for the conference might include: Staged contingency in music of the 1920s; Western music compositions that integrate improvisatory and participatory qualities; Influences of popular, and folk music (e.g. African American popular music, Romani music, music performed by non-literary cultures) on compositions of the 1920s; The reception of African American music on classically trained composers and performers; Performance techniques of the “historical avant-garde”; Performance as a ritual in theatre or ballet music; Participatory relationships between performer and audience in art music contexts; Preluding and extemporization techniques in the 1910s-1920s
