Perspectives on Sylvano Bussotti

29 September - 1 October 2021, Giessen
International Conference on the Occasion of Sylvano Bussotti’s 90th Birthday, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany
CFP deadline: 15 October 2020

The Italian composer Sylvano Bussotti (*1931) was significantly involved in the critical deconstruction of standardised notation with his graphic scores of the 1950s. With the ‘mystère de chambre’ La Passion selon Sade (1965), he presented a work that was characterised to a previously unknown extent by an erotic physicality. And in the decades to come, within the exceptional personal union of composer, director, actor, stage and costume designer, he consistently explored the boundaries between different genres (music theatre, ballet, instrumental music) and medially differentiated art forms (e.g. between music and visual art). 

The conference takes the composer’s 90th birthday as an opportunity to bundle recent approaches and break new ground in research on Bussotti, and to stimulate a broader debate on his oeuvre and aesthetics. 

We encourage papers from a range of disciplines including musicology, performance practice, theatre and linguistic studies, philosophy, media aesthetics, philology or cultural studies.

For the full CFP

The conference language is English.
