CFP: Listening to Music - The Anatomy of Listening (Glasgow)

13 - 14 JUNE 2009

Proposals are invited for presentations to a weekend Colloquium on the topic of Listening to Music: The Anatomy of Listening to be held at the Centre for Music Technology, University of Glasgow on June 13 and 14, 2009.

Presentations may be of up to 30 minutes (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion) on any specific subject which falls within this field. Proposals from musicians, scholars or scientists (including postgraduate students) in any discipline are welcome. Please send proposals to Prof Graham Hair, Centre for Music Technology, Rankine Building, Glasgow University, Oakfield Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8LT or (preferably) email them to him at by May 31st, 2009.

Contributors may address aspects of ‘listening to music’ from the perspective of their own disciplines, or propose dialogue with disciplines whose insights might provoke them to see their own work from new perspectives or in a broader context.
