Folk  Music Research, Folkloristics, and Anthropology of Music in Europe

International Symposium

17 - 19 October 2019
1030, Anton-von-Webern-Platz 1, Fanny-Hensel-Hall

Folk music, folklore, and the anthropology of music arediscursive fields, deeply rooted in European thought from the Enlightenment period onwards. Up to the first decades of the 20thcenturiesleading intellectuals of their countries—polymaths, philosophers, historians, writers, philologists, composers, musicologists—devoted themselves to, and were inspired by, continuous observations of theexpressive practices of what once was called the common people or the Volk. Their intellectual involvement with traditional music engendered powerful theories, and research methods that could later be applied to the study not only of rural or illiterate communities but to a broad field of social settings.

Due to language barriers as well as to wide-spread stereotypes of folk music and folklore discourses as genuinely and predominantly ideological, romanticist and nationalist agendas, the early intellectual history of folk music research, comparative musicology and ethnomusicology raises many unanswered questions. This concerns intellectuals’ interest in European folk music as well asin non-European music.

The symposium aims to trace the history of theory and method in the fields outlined above before it became an international paradigm under the label ethnomusicology. While the temporal scopeof the Symposium is limited to the period beforemid-20thcentury a critical evaluation of our intellectual history in the context of contemporary discourses is welcome.

Telling  Stories - Performers(') Present International Artistic Research Symposium

23 - 26 October 2019
Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (Singapur)

Narratives – whether historical, political, or musical; whether fact or fiction – are inextricably bound to the ways we experience the world, and the art that translates these experiences.

In the decade since we began hosting the triennial Performers(‘) Present symposium, artistic research has been undergoing rapid and ground-shifting transformations, with the performer’s voice becoming ever more present. As with our previous symposia, Telling Stories seeks to address and evolve the kaleidoscopic issues facing 21st-century performers, as they reflect on their practice in the context of significant shifts in politics, communications and technology, and performance practice.

"Cantare  nel gravicembalo"

Workshops, Konzerte und Vorträge zur Ensemble- und Begleitpraxis in der italienischen Musikultur um 1600

4. - 8. November 2019
mdw

Eine Kooperation des Instituts für Musikwissenschaft und Interpretationsforschung, des Joseph Haydn Instituts für Kammermusik, Alte Musik und Neue Musik und des Instituts für Orgel, Orgelforschung und Kirchenmusik

Konzept und Organisation: Augusta Campagne und Markus Grassl

Die Veranstaltung fokussiert einen zentralen Aspekt der Entwicklung in der italienischen Musik um 1600, der gleichermaßen die Geschichte des Komponierens, Notierens und der Aufführungspraxis betrifft: die Integration und wichtige Rolle von Akkordinstrumenten in der (im weitesten Sinn) musikalischen Produktion. Dabei bildet das Phänomen des General- bzw. sog. bezifferten Basses nur eine Spielart eines wesentlich breiter gefächerten Spektrums, das zudem vielfältige historische Vorstadien aufweist und auf der anderen Seite über das rein Aufführungspraktische hinaus auf das Komponieren und die (theoretische) Konzeption des mehrstimmigen Satzes einwirkt sowie auf bestimmte musikkulturelle Voraussetzungen verweist.

Um eine ebenso vielschichtige wie intensive Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema zu erreichen, stehen im Laufe der Woche verschiedene Veranstaltungsformate nebeneinander: Workshops samt Einführungsvorträgen, Konzerte bzw. lecture recitals, zwei Kurzsymposien sowie ein abschließender Roundtable.

DESIR  Winter School Shaping new approaches to data management in arts and humanities

10 - 13 December 2019
Lisbon

The event will be hosted by NOVA FCSH University facilities and is organised in the framework of the Horizon 2020 funded project DESIR (DARIAH ERIC Sustainability Refined). It aims at gathering PhD students, arts and humanities scholars from all career stages and research managers interested in the issues raised by sustainable practices to open up data in the arts and humanities. The event is a joint organisation between DARIAH and NOVA FCSH. As such, it will bring together the collaboration of national and European experts in the data management field.

Sharing knowledge, research outputs and other scholarly resources in ways that are tuned for long-term availability and maximal use and reuse are recognized as essential practices but also key challenges for arts and humanities research. In the last couple of years, this need  has also been recognized in a strong political drive in the European Union giving rise to support structures but also policy imperatives for research data management. As a result, Research data management emerged to be a new field of expertise to explore and establish in all range of disciplines.

CREATIVE  IDENTITIES IN TRANSITION:

Higher Music Education & Employability in the 21st Century

27 - 29 February 2020
mdw

Higher music education institutions aim at helping students to acquire skills and knowledge and to develop specific personal attributes to negotiate the initial stages of their careers as musicians and to attain employability and life-long learning. However, the learning cultures and practices of artistic valuation at music universities and conservatoires are hardly explored and employability is poorly defined and hard to measure, especially in the face of changing relations between study and work. These changes include, for example, individualisation processes, a growing number of music graduates competing for work and a decrease of publicly funded orchestras in many European countries. The process of becoming a musician is thus not simply about sequentially passing through particular stages of development. Rather, it entails the negotiation of significant and complex rites of passages increasingly associated with a heightened responsibility for constructing one’s own career and identity. Moreover, transitions from study to working life are shaped by gender, race, class and sexuality and include dilemmas in weaving together established normative and personal meanings. As a result, career trajectories remain, in many cases, “permanently transitional”.

Crisis  Collective!

11th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research

25 - 28 March 2020
Bergen

The 11th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research, SAR 2020, investigates and discusses the relation between Artistic Research, various notions of collective reality and alternative imaginations. Reality, as we currently know it, is marked by a series of inter-connected crises, and as part of larger collective structures, artistic researchers are confronted by and immersed in these. The urgency of these crises forces the agency and relevance of Artistic Research into question. By debating modes of research, dissemination and communication employed by Artistic Research as well as its academic contextualization, the SAR 2020 conference aims at negotiating and analysing the problems we face. The question relates to the autonomy of the individual artist- researcher, the systemic institutionalization of Artistic Research and the current more collective state of emergencies that we face. What are the modes of trial/ experimentation, creation, reflection, and communication in this crisis collective like? Can Artistic Research – through artistic actions – generate alternative modes of knowledge, art and reality?

The SAR 2020 conference calls for proposals to constitute the Crisis Collective in four different strands. Each conference proposal/ presentation adds into the shared vision of troubles and possible paths active now and in the future and generates a response by Artistic Research to the Crisis Collective. The four strands are:

  • Emergency
  • The Great Conversation
  • Hammer and Mirror? The language of Artistic Research
  • Various Rehearsals

15 - 17 April 2020
University of Turku, Finland

The Working in Music Network (WIM) is pleased to announce its third Working in Music Conference, to be hosted by the University of Turku, Finland, in April 2020. The Conference follows the staging of previous WIM conferences in Glasgow (2016) and Lausanne (2018) and the establishment of the Network (https://wim.hypotheses.org/). WIM was launched in Lausanne in 2018 and has been established by scholars interested in the historical and contemporary nature of working in music. It has adopted the following Statement of Purpose:

‘Working in Music is an international research network. Our purpose is to conduct and disseminate innovative research about all aspects of what it means to work in music. We aim to understand music as work through economic, sociocultural, political, legal and historical lenses, and to explore working conditions and experiences across genres and divisions of labour. Our approach is multidisciplinary and endeavours to forge connections between academic disciplines through shared interests in music and work. Our network developed from and is centred on a biennial conference in which scholars meet to exchange and debate issues and ideas. We are also committed to working with musicians, practitioners and music industries personnel’.

Imperfection  as an Aesthetic Idea in Music: Perspectives from Musicology and Artistic Research

Symposium

6 - 7 May 2020
Institut für Musikästhetik - Künstlerische Doktoratsschule
Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Graz

When we look to music, are we looking for perfection? Or does imperfection ultimately have more aesthetic value for us as practitioners and researchers? Historically, perfection has been treated with suspicion as an aesthetic idea in general. Already in the 1757 On the Sublime and the Beautiful, Edmund Burke mused that “beauty in distress is the most affecting beauty”; Heinrich Kleist, in his 1810 On the Marionette Theater, further suggested that perfection in art only resided beyond the domain of the properly human. In recent discussions of aesthetics in the more specific realm of music, however, the issue of imperfection has most often been discussed with primary reference to musical improvisation, although additional topics have sometimes been part of the discourse in musicology and artistic research.

Coming from the dual perspectives of artistic research and musicology, this conference aims to broaden our perspectives on how imperfection can inform our aesthetic understanding of music, historically and in current practice. We are especially interested in the aesthetic implications of musical imperfection from two contrasting points of view: 1) imperfection as a manifest goal of music and musical practice, and 2) imperfection that occurs primarily by accident, but nevertheless has aesthetic significance.

Fragility of Sounds | Festival Conference 2020

8 - 9 May 2020
University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz

"On the fragility of sounds" is an artistic research project funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund (PEEK Project AR537). It is designed to explore terrains of composition and contemporary music theatre as they are interwoven with feminist practice. The project research expands from the intersection of listening, composing, and feminism. We ask: Can music theatre be conceived with "Another Ear" rather than from the perspective of the "Male Gaze"? We aim to understand how the process of composing is affected by (feminist) listening.

"Fragility of Sounds" is a multi-/interdisciplinary festival-conference and invites proposals from researchers and artistic researchers from any discipline whose work relates to this topic.
