EVENT: Perspectives on Musical Improvisation

Perspectives on Musical Improvisation, 10-13 September 2012, University
of Oxford. Reminder.

We have a small number of places still available at the conference about 25 – and so if you were interested in joining the event or had missed previous announcements, we would encourage you to book sooner rather than later. The conference brings together a rich set of perspectives on musical improvisation with papers approaching the  subject from musicological, cognitive, psycho-social, philosophical, anthropological and pedagogical lenses representing a range of improvisatory genres. In addition to papers, there will be practical workshops and performances.

The conference website is at http://www.music.ox.ac.uk/pomi/ and provides full information about the programme and presenters,  how to register and book your accommodation ( the registration and accommodation pages both link to the conference online booking system), and about travel arrangements. We advise delegates to pay registration fees and accommodation in one booking – this is simpler than doing this separately.  Further, we would encourage you to book your Christ Church conference accommodation sooner rather than later as their full board rates are very reasonable and it can be difficult to find accommodation in Oxford during September. Note that we have limited discounted places left for students.

For further information about registration or accommodation, contact the Conference Administrator, Emily Payne:  infopomi at music.ox.ac.uk

Conference committee: Professor Eric Clarke, Dr Mark Doffman and Dr David Maw.
