RMA Study Day – Keeping Time? New Approaches to Temporality
Department of Music, University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD
Monday 13 June 2016 – 09:30 to 18:00 (BST)
The study of temporality has been of central importance to music scholarship since the pioneering work of Jonathan Kramer, Edward T. Cone, David Epstein and others. This topic acts as a useful platform for scholars concerned with different historical periods, traditions and genres, to fruitfully exchange ideas and approaches. This study day aims to showcase a broad range of perspectives on issues of temporality, as well as critical responses to the foundations and assumptions of previous work in this field. We are delighted to be joined by Dr Edward Venn (University of Leeds) who will be talking on multiple temporalities in the work of Thomas Adès.
The conference is preceded by, ‘Keeping Time: Music, Metronomes, Machines’, an event produced by Dark Inventions at the National Centre for Early Music on 12 June as part of the York Festival of Ideas. Issues of temporality are explored in a rare rendition of György Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes, alongside a performance by Jonathan Sage (clarinet) and Delia Stevens (percussion) of new music exploring issues of time.
