INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MUSIC PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS LUCERNE (SWITZERLAND) 1 - 2 JULY 2009 CALL FOR PAPERS
The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts organizes a conference in the field of music performance analysis. The conference will take place during the annual meeting of the “International Association of Schools of Jazz” in Lucerne, and it will attract a mixed audience of jazz students/teachers and researchers in the field of performance. The conference consists of two symposia: Symposium 1: Perspectives on ‘Body & Soul’ Wednesday, July 1, 2009, 13:30-18:30 ‘Body & Soul’ (1930) is famed to be the most recorded American popular song of all time: In 1980, Gary Giddins counted nearly 3000 recorded versions of the song, and the three decades since then have added considerably to this impressive number. The attraction of this intricate melody with its harmonically surprising bridge doesn’t seem to fade away. The papers of the symposium analyse recorded performances of the tune; they describe individual responses of musicians and singers to the composition, the lyrics and to earlier renditions of ‘Body & Soul’. Symposium 2: Methods of music performance analysis Thursday, July 2, 2009, 09:00-16:30 The analysis of music performance is a relatively new field in music research, and the methods of analysis are still in an experimental stage. The papers of this symposium present innovative analytical procedures and demonstrate the scope and limit of these methods by applying them to concrete musical examples of different genres (examples of both popular and classical music are welcome). Call for papers Researchers and musicians, who are interested to contribute a paper, send their abstract of approximately 400 words to Olivier Senn (firstname.lastname@example.org) before December 14, 2008. The presentations (30’ each) and discussions will be held in English. All presented papers will be published within the conference proceedings.
