Music & Sound Studies: Intersections, Boundaries, Opportunities

Friday, September 22, 2017 to Saturday, September 23, 2017

This workshop has emerged from the desire to formalize disciplinary exchanges among scholars at the intersection of music and sound studies in Paris (Paris Sciences et Lettres) and at Columbia. In the last few years sound studies has emerged as an increasingly institutionalized discipline.

Books, journals, readers, courses, and conferences have consolidated this historically transdisciplinary and dispersed field into a broad, albeit still disciplinarily dispersed debate. This increasing attention to sound raises historical and epistemological issues and invites further consideration of the interaction between sound studies and musical disciplines. The purpose of this workshop is to think together through the questions and issues raised by the intersection of music and sound studies from historically, ethnographically, and scientifically situated research.

“Music & Sound Studies: Intersections, Boundaries, Opportunities” seeks to explore the relation between musical disciplines and sound studies through three key sites: sounds of the city and the historically problematic notion of soundscape; music, soundscapes, and the political; and the relationships among acoustics and neuroscience and music/sound. Additionally, an evening concert of recent compositions will display the current range of work in “sound art,” a richly interdisciplinary creative field.

MUSICOLOGY IN THE AGE OF (POST)GLOBALIZATION Barry S. Brook

graMusicology in the Age of (Post)Globalization: Barry S. Brook Centennial Conference

In 2018 the Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation celebrates the centennial of its founder, Barry S. Brook (1918–97). A musicologist with a global vision who lived and worked both in New York and in Paris, his scholarly interests were broad: His research covered secular music from the Renaissance, the 18th and the 19th century, as well as music iconography, the social history of music, and aesthetics. In later years he became fascinated with ethnomusicology. His interest in the control of music sources and resources together with his vision of a global research community and the use of computers for humanities research led him to found Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM) and to cofound the Répertoire International d’Iconographie Musicale (RIdIM), along with many other publications and series.

To celebrate his vision and accomplishments,

IX CONGRESO CHILENO DE MUSICOLOGÍA: “MÚSICA EN TIEMPOS DE CRISIS”

Desde la organización si invita a  presentar propuestas inéditas que aborden la compleja relación entre la música y el concepto de crisis en sus diversas acepciones. Generalmente, dicho concepto tiene una connotación negativa y se entiende simplemente como una “situación mala o difícil”. Pero también es posible entenderlo como un “cambio profundo y de consecuencias importantes en un proceso o una situación, o en la manera en que estos son apreciados” (RAE), lo que puede conllevar tanto una mejora como un declive con relación a la situación anterior.
