Keynote Speaker


Prof Augusto Sarti (Politecnico di Milano)

will talk on "Capturing and Rendering Spatial Audio".

 


Digital music is an important and fast-moving research area. Sophisticated
digital tools for the creation, generation and dissemination of music have
established clear synergies between music and leisure industries, the use of
technology within art, the creative industries and the creative economy.
Digital music research is emerging as a "transdiscipline" across the usual
academic boundaries of computer science, electronic engineering and music.

The Digital Music Research Network (DMRN) aims to promote research in the
area of Digital Music, by bringing together researchers from universities
and industry in electronic engineering, computer science, and music.

            DMRN will be holding its next 1-day workshop on
                       ** Tuesday 19 December 2017 **

The workshop will include invited and contributed talks, and posters will be
on display during the day, including during the lunch and coffee breaks.

The workshop will be an ideal opportunity for networking with other people
working in the area. There will also be an opportunity to continue
discussions after the Workshop in a nearby Pub/Restaurant.

 

 

Call for Contributions
 
You are invited to submit a proposal for a talk and/or a poster to be
presented at this event.
 
TALKS may range from the latest research, through research overviews or
surveys, to opinion pieces or position statements, particularly those likely

including questions. Short announcements about other items of interest

(e.g., future events or other networks) are also welcome.

Fwd: CFP: songwriting special issue of JPME

the Journal of Popular Music Education invite papers for a special issue on songwriting, guest edited by Andrew West.

Songwriting has received increasing scholarly attention in recent years, commensurate with growth of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and expansion of songwriting provision in schools. Songwriting practices have evolved to encompass domains formerly the preserve of producers, engineers, composers, and arrangers. Songwriting can be found at the heart of work in music therapy, community projects, and big business. The realm of the genius, the muse, the pop culture icon, and the person on the street, songwriting to many people is at the core of what it means to be human.

We invite submissions reporting on empirical research and diverse disciplinary perspectives on topics including but not limited to songwriting issues in contexts of curriculum design, teaching and learning, assessment, history, music theory, collaboration and entrepreneurship, ideology, diversity, creativities, therapy, gender, improvisation, combined arts, disability, STEM, performance and performativity, spirituality, copyright, leisure perspectives, polemic, and politics.

In this songwriting special issue of the Journal of Popular Music Education, the editors continue to seek to define, delimit, debunk, disseminate, and disrupt practice and discourse in and around popular music education.

Please refer to JPME submission guidelines and Intellect style guide when preparing an submissions. 

Articles should be emailed to jpmesongwritingspecialissue@gmail.com by 1 June 2018.

Christmas concert, UCL Chamber Music Club

Hi everyone,

Preparation for the CMC Christmas concert in the evening of Thurs 7th
December is under way and we are now recruiting musicians of all
instruments/voices who are interested in performing in this event. The
Christmas concert is a tradition that both new and old members always
enjoy for its festive atmosphere and the mince pies and wine
afterwards!

This year we have also decided to tailor the programme to your
interests and instruments, and so along with carols (which of course
the Christmas concert can't do without!), we could be looking at
cantatas, anthems and concertos. And of course, if you have a
particular piece in mind you wish to perform, do get in touch as well!

Rehearsals are usually Thursday evenings, to begin next Thursday, 9th
of November. Tentatively singers will rehearse 5-7pm and
instrumentalists 7-9pm, but that will be confirmed later and again
depends on the interests we receive. And of course, if you intend to
perform in a small ensemble (duo, piano trio etc), you are free to set
your own rehearsal schedule; we might be able to offer rehearsal
space.

So do get in touch if you want to be a part of this festive tradition
and perform with us!

Best regards,

Jason Chan, UCL committee member and concert organiser jason.lockyn@gmail.com
