Music and Disruptive Pasts: Between the Popular and the Arcane

21-22 August 2019, Milton Keynes
Please send proposals (250 words) to alexander.kolassa -at- by Friday 17 May 2019.
Jennie Lee Building, The Open University, Milton Keyne

The past is not mere history. In the creative imagination it is, indeed, a fractious and disruptive place where the atemporal logics of anachronism govern, and strict chronological narratives become suspended. More than a bygone space to ‘learn’ from, the past has a life of its own, in turn refracting and transforming our present and colouring and informing (perhaps, even, delaying) the future.

The REMOSS (Representations of Early Music on Stage and Screen) study group seeks to expand its purview to broach broader questions of how music operates in a (new) media landscape where the past figures prominently and in a transformational way.. We are interested in how music works ambiguously with (and against) history in film, television, and videogame, in the concert hall, stage, and museum space, and in domains ‘highbrow’ and ‘lowbrow (and neither), be that to reinforce or subvert artistic practice, historiography, and creative imagination—new and old. In addition to our on-going interest in representations of early music and historically informed performance we are particularly interested in the role of music, the past, and



Historic soundscapes

Sound and immersion

Period settings outside of the Middle Ages (antiquity, nineteenth century, etc.)


Politics and national identities

Popular music, art music, and the spaces between

Gothic and other subcultures

Gender, sexuality, and the body

Whiteness and extremist ideologies

Representations of race

In addition to traditional papers we welcome proposals for alternative formats(e.g. pre-circulated papers, workshop and discussion seminars, practice-orientated research, lightning talks, and poster presentations)

Digital presentations and remote attendance will be available for those unable to attend in person. The conference will also be live streamed.
