Researching Music, Technology & Education
University of Hull
Saturday 18 September 2010
This one-day conference will be hosted by the School of Arts & New Media, University of Hull (Scarborough Campus), and will be preceded by a PALATINE event on Friday 17 September.
Our engagement with music has changed over the past several decades as technology has become a component of everyday practice. This conference seeks to explore ideas surrounding the use of technology in music education, drawing attention to innovative practice and providing a supportive forum to those researching and using technology in music education. Contributions are encouraged in the following areas:
Ø computer-mediated music composition
Ø performance technologies
Ø music recording/production
Ø popular music
Ø musical creativity and technology
Ø classroom engagement
Ø assessment of music technology practice
Ø computational musicology
The conference will provide opportunities for colleagues to present and discuss ideas in a friendly and supportive environment, as well as to create a meeting place for academics from different institutions. The event will include spoken presentations, a poster display, workshops and open discussions about research in music, technology and education. Contributions are welcome from researchers at all levels and are especially encouraged from postgraduate students. Submissions should show how the topic relates to the conference theme. Please send abstracts for spoken presentations (200 words) and for posters (100 words) by email to Andrew King (A.King@hull.ac.uk) by 30 July 2010. Presenters will be asked whether or not they wish their work to be considered for publication in a future edition of the Journal of Music, Technology & Education (ISSN: 17527066).
