Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories – MuSA 2011, Baden-Baden, Germany, August 2011.
Proposals for sessions and individual papers for the Second
International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories
are invited from academics, practitioners and post-graduate students.
The aim of the symposium will be to advance interdisciplinary
investigations between the domains of music and other arts.
First, the organizers welcome presentations in ‘traditional’ subject
areas such as historical/critical musicology, performance studies,
aesthetics, analysis and ethnomusicology. Second, as the symposium’s
title suggests, we hope to encourage the submission of papers
investigating relationships (and possible tensions) between music and
sonic/sound art. Third, presentations are also invited from scholars who
are researching the connections between music and disciplines such as
architecture, dance, performance, theatre, digital media, painting,
theatre and literature.
All papers will be ‘blind’ peer-reviewed by the symposium conference
committee and published in the conference proceedings.
The Second International Symposium on Music and Sonic Art: Practices and
Theories, is a two-day event and will be held in Baden-Baden, Germany.
The symposium will be held in English. The provisional dates are August
1-2, 2011. MuSA 2011 is part of the InterSymp 2011 Conference. Please
