Michael Jackson: Some Observations


Michael Jackson (1958-2009) passed away yesterday and I find myself in awe of the coverage devoted to the more esoteric parts of his life (e.g. hyperbaric chamber, conversations with Bubbles, dangling of a baby outside a window, his infamous trial). All of this seems to distract from his contribution to popular music of the late 20th century. In the interest of full disclosure, I've liked his music but have always found his little sister, Janet's music the more interesting. Prior to yesterday I haven't bought an album since I forked out the cash for a cassette of Thriller.

I happened to be in HMV on Oxford Street where hordes of shoppers were congregating around a front-end display of his CDs and DVDs whilst his Billie Jean blasted away through the sound system. HMV had entrepreniuerally created an end of aisle display strictly on his music alone. As I've said I haven't bought one of his albums for a couple decades and was caught up in the moment and bought his album the '#1s' which is a compilation of his hits which went to the top of the Billboard charts, so not everything but many of the classics.

Rather than purchase a CD, I opted for this DVD as it had the videos of those covers. By no means was this an act of nostalgia, but thinking about Jackson's contributions to pop culture, it was really these videos which influenced a generation of pop music. What would the dance moves of Justin Timberlake or Beyonce look like without a Michael Jackson? What about his synthesis of R&B which form the undercurrent sound of boy band groups like NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and Blue?

It is easy for the media to focus on lawsuits over control of assets let alone child custody, but in time these will be overshadowed by his artistic contributions. At the time MTV was a fledgling network devoted to Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran, a younger Madonna and Culture Club. With the Thriller album's hits of Billie Jean and Thriller, Jackson's dance moves indelibly made their mark on our collective consciousness. These dance moves which are highlighted in almost all of his videos coupled with savvy Quincy Jones R&B infused tracks was a revolutionary fusion of musical styles for the 20th century. It would serve as a structural constant for popular music of the past 30 years even outliving its antithesis found in the grunge music of Seattle's Nirvana in the 90s. In terms of musical importance, one could liken it to the 19th century cross-cultural synthesis which brought together antiphonal 'hollers' of the African-American slaves, the creation of the blues and the evolution into jazz.

Listening to this compilation, I'm struck in particular by the video to Man in the Mirror. Even though it cites many of history's notable events it doesn't seem dated. One of the most fitting images relate to the death of another artist, John Lennon. (I remember that date but his passing affected in particular one of my cousins who could play almost all of his and the Beatles' tunes by memory on the piano. I'm pretty sure she could probably do the same for MJ.) As with Jackson's passing it is his musical contributions which stay in the memory. Back to the video: although the Berlin Wall has fallen and Poland has joined the EU, there is still gender/racial/sexual inequality, conflict in the Middle East, nuclear proliferation still haunts us as does poverty in the Third World. Will it seem dated in another 20 years? I'm not sure, but thanks to digital technology Michael Jackson's music and video will continue to exist. Perhaps his influence will even be discussed in textbooks as are the origins of the blues and jazz today.

Postgraduate: French-German Master in Musicology (Sorbonne / Saarbrücken)


From September 2009 the University of Saarland at Saarbrücken offers an integrated French-German Master of Arts in musicology. The course is offered in cooperation with the Université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Students spend the first year in Paris, the second together with their French fellow students in Saarbrücken.

CFP: Beyond the Centres: Musical Avant Gardes since 1950 (Thessaloniki, Greece)

1 - 5 JULY 2010
In memoriam Yannis Andreou Papaioannou (1910 – 1989)

The notion of the avant garde in music has stereotypically been linked with the post-1950 internationalisation of early 20th-century modernist ideas, while the historical and aesthetic delimitation of boundaries between the musical avant garde and post-modernism is still under discussion. The ‘mainstream’ historiography attached to the avant garde quite expectedly focuses on the idea of innovation in the music and theoretical texts of specific pioneers, and on notions such as universality and the significance of time as parameters affecting the appraisal of the work of art.

The approach of this International Conference, as inferred from the first part of its title (‘Beyond the Centres’) can be perceived either with regard to places, times and individuals (i.e. beyond the places, times and individuals that have defined the starting points of musical avant gardes), or with regard to dominant categorizations (i.e., beyond the dominant, centric, perceptions of the avant-garde irrespective of places, times or individuals).

Thus the aim of the Conference is twofold:
1) To gather together research on widely unknown musical realizations of the notion of the avant-garde since 1950, and encourage the examination of multiple, heterogeneous currents built around the ideas of innovation and / or radicalism.

2) To stimulate theoretical critical discussion on how the notion of the avant garde can be assessed today ‘from outside’ (beyond the centric generic ideas of the time of its formation) and embrace problematisation of the very premise of a unified term for the avant garde. In other words, to motivate the critical appraisal of the function, reception, realization and dissemination of what was or is considered avant-garde in different geographical and cultural contexts. In this respect, the examination of the pedagogic methods that were developed by institutions or individuals for the establishment and dissemination of avant-garde techniques is within the scope of the Conference.

Historical, analytical, ideological, political, sociological,cultural, interdisciplinary, anthropological and other approaches are all welcome. The broad thematic categories of the Conference can be summarized as follows:

- Avant-garde techniques and aesthetics.
- Avant garde and politics / ideology.
- Compositional instruction, music theory and analysis and the avant gardes.

More specifically, the following list of possible thematic areas is intended not to be restrictive, but informative of the priorities of the Conference:

- Definitions and musical realizations of the idea of the avant garde
- ideological expressions of the avant garde
- avant garde and institutions
- avant garde and cultural identity
- reception of the avant gardes
- avant-garde pedagogies
- utopias of the avant garde
- avant-garde instrumentation – notation
- avant garde and post-modernism
- avant garde and experimentalism
- avant garde and the perception of time / space
- organicism and / or fragmentation in avant gardes.

The Conference is dedicated to the memory of Yannis A. Papaioannou,celebrating the centenary of the birth of the most influential figure in the dissemination of avant-garde ideas in post-1950 Greece through his musical, educational and institutional activities. In addition to being a stimulus for further research on Papaioannou’s life, music and ideas, the present Conference is inspired by the universality of his approach to music and teaching, thus aiming at a universal critical appraisal of different expressions of the notion of the avant garde.

The Conference is organized by the Department of Music Studies, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece between 1 and 5 July 2010. The official language of the Conference is English.

Abstracts are invited for presentation in one of the following formats:
• Papers (20 minute presentations)
• Panels, of up to four individual papers (preferably with explicit reference to one of the three main thematic categories of the conference).

Abstracts must address the conference theme and clearly state the aims and methodological approach of the proposed paper(s). Abstracts for individual papers should be no longer than 300 words.

Zombomodernism: the Ends of Practice-as-research (CSSD, London)


The figure of the zombie is the uncanny split par excellence: neither living nor dead, both familiar and unfamiliar. The zombie presents a unmeasurable proximal distance between the known and unknown. The zombie’s movements are human in resemblance (as is its physical form), and yet, in its single-minded determination, its constant pace, and its inability to manoeuvre around obstacles in its path, it is clearly inhuman.

Is not the condition of the zombie also the condition of the modern practice-as-research academic? That is, current PAR can be described as existing within a state of ‘Zombomodernity,’ that post-postmodern state in which the ideas are not dead, but nor are they truly alive. Practice-as-research features a similar uncanny split: is it research or is it art? And the spectacle of the modern practice-as-research academic is analogous to that of the zombie in many ways: we’re single-minded, move slowly and bang our heads against the wall over and over again.

Central School of Speech and Drama’s Research Degree students are pleased to announce a one-day interdisciplinary colloquium exploring practice-as-research from the perspective of its relationship to both professional practice and the institution, aimed at finding the antidote and liberating it from Zombomodernism or cutting its head off and putting it to rest forever. As an institution, CSSD is uniquely placed to explore these issues, being itself an uncanny hybrid of conservatoire and research institution, and this colloquium is part of the Festival of Emergent Art, a high-profile two week festival of new practice-as-research performances and presentations from PhD students, MA Performance Practices and Research students, staff and visiting artists.

We invite 20-minute papers and proposals for workshops that might interrogate the value of PAR and its contribution to new knowledge and professional practice.

What is the relationship between PaR and professional practice?
What is the relationship between PaR and the university?
Does PaR create new knowledge?
Is the university the best place to make experimental practice?
Can we imagine new ways of documenting experimental practice?
Can we imagine new ways of writing about practice?
Can we stop asking ourselves if it’s ok and just get on with it?

Submissions are invited from all researchers and postgraduate students working in theatre, drama, dance, film, puppetry and object-theatre, circus, installation, live art and visual culture. Interdisciplinary work is especially welcome, as well as submissions of experimental writing and documentation.

Please send a 250 word abstract (for papers) or proposal (for workshops)along with a brief biographical statement to colloquium organiser Broderick Chow at by Monday, 6 July 2009. Please send large attachments Decisions will be made within three weeks. Any questions can also be directed to the colloquium organiser.

CFP: Post-Punk Performance: the alternative 80s in Britain (Leeds)


The School of Performance and Cultural Industries is pleased to be hosting a one-day conference event called “Post-Punk Performance: the alternative 80s in Britain”.

Contrary to popular mythology, youth culture during the 1980s meant rather more than Spandau Ballet, Rick Astley, and Madonna. A quickly burgeoning ‘indie’ scene, born of the ruins of punk, set itself against the banality of the mainstream. Centred on music and synonymous with identity and self-expression, it offered a complex and layered network of alternatives for an increasingly politicised and self-aware generation of young people.

The purpose of this conference is to explore notions of ‘alternative’ music and performance in the post-punk era, circa 1978 – 1989. The ‘indie’ music scene of this period will serve as a lens through which to view core themes of liveness, fashion and visual identities, iconography, youth cultures and the socio-political context. The event will assess post-punk’s continuing and profound influence on the current scene, both in musical and performative terms. It will explore how post-punk is absorbed into the present and will be projected into the future.

In addition to contributions from academics and scholars, the event will invite label partners, musicians and influential journalists to exchange views and perspectives on the post-punk era and beyond. This framework offers unique opportunities to bring together the academy and industry, and to facilitate networking and discussion across these spheres.

A live performance event featuring poetry, comedy and music will follow the daytime proceedings. Acts to be announced.

Proposals might address one or more of the following themes:
• The frequency and velocity of musical genre development
• Liveness: performance authenticities
• Performance of style
• Visual identities: fashion’s relation to music and vice versa
• Transatlantic influence and exchange
• Alternative music, party politics and gender politics
• The past reconfigured for the present
• Song writing: structure and theme
• Media representation and music reportage
• Local scenes
• Record labels and musical identity
• Punk and post-punk: musical legacies and trajectories

The conference will be interdisciplinary. Therefore, we welcome contributions from a range of disciplines, including Music, Performance, Fashion and Textiles, Photography, Cultural Studies, Sociology, Film and Television Studies, Philosophy and Journalism.

Proposals should be submitted as a Word Document and should contain the following information:

 Name of Presenter
 Title of Paper
 Institutional Affiliation
 150 word biography
 500 word abstract

Please send your proposal electronically, together with a completed registration form, to Dr Philip Kiszely ( by Friday 26th June, 2009. Acceptance will be confirmed by the end of July.

Cost: £125 (Includes conference proceedings, day conference, entry to evening event)

PhD Studentship: Methods and Influence of the Folk organisation Folkworks (Newcastle University)


The International Centre for Music Studies at Newcastle University, in partnership with The Sage Gateshead, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a PhD studentship as part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council of Great Britain's Collaborative Doctoral Awards scheme. We are seeking to award a fully-funded three-year studentship, commencing 21 September 2009, to research the methods and influence of the folk music organisation Folkworks. Further details are given below.

Supervisors: Dr Vic Gammon, Dr Felicity Laurence, Mr Alistair Anderson School: International Centre for Music Studies (School of Arts and Cultures) in collaboration with The Sage Gateshead Funded by: AHRC

Since 2000 Folkworks has been integrated into The Sage Gateshead. It has established a national reputation for the promotion of folk and traditional music through its educational work and through presenting some of the world's best traditional musicians in concerts, tours and festival events. The aim of this project is to investigate the innovative character of Folkworks and evaluate its practices and success factors.

The main areas of research will be:
*The development of Folkworks and other folk music development agencies in other countries, for example Ireland and Scotland.

*The characteristic forms of learning and participation in Folkworks' activities including the relationships of aurality and literacy in learning and transmission and compare these, in a historically-informed way, with learning and transmission in older traditional forms of music-making.

*The adaptation of Folkworks' learning and participation methods to meet the needs of different client groups, for example children, undergraduates and adult amateurs.

*The characteristics of Folkworks' tutors' interactional styles, their approach to accommodating different forms and degrees of musical competence within the same workshop and the social situations created in group sessions.

*The organisational culture of Folkworks both before and after its integration into The Sage Gateshead. This will include looking at future developments and considering the future of the philosophy and practices created through Folkworks in view of generational changes of personnel and organisational structure.

Candidates should have, or expect to achieve, a good Honours degree (minimum upper-second-class Honours) in music. You must have either an exceptional proven knowledge and ability in the field of folk and traditional music and a demonstrable aptitude for work in the area of pedagogical studies or an MA or MMus in music. This project may well suit someone who is an educator in the field and wants to develop research in this area.

An essential part of this project is being a participant-observer alongside The Sage Gateshead's staff on Folkworks projects so candidates must be practitioners in folk and traditional music.

Depending on how you meet the AHRC's eligibility criteria, you may receive a full or partial award. A full award covers tuition fees and an annual stipend of £14,440 (includes the AHRC stipend and an additional payment from The SAgE Gateshead). A partial award covers tuition fees only.

You must complete the University's postgraduate application form (,selecting 'PhD School of Arts and Cultures (full time) - Music' as the programme of study and inserting the reference number SAC01. Your application should include a CV, covering letter and the contact
details of two academic referees. The covering letter (no more than one side of A4), must state the title of the studentship, quote the reference number SAC01 and state how your interests and experience relate to the project.

You should also send your CV, covering letter, and the names and addresses of two referees as email attachments to Jane Hagger,

Closing date for applications: Friday 26 June 2009
We intend to hold interviews on Tuesday 14 July. If you are unable to attend on this date please indicate this on your application.

Further Information: Informal enquires can be made via email to Dr Vic Gammon,

CFP: WEMIS Workshop on Exploring Music Information Spaces (Corfu, Greece)

1 - 2 OCTOBER 2009
Deadline for submission of papers: June 24, 2009

The Workshop on Exploring Musical Information Spaces 2009 will be held on October 01-02, 2009, in conjunction with the 13th European Conference on Digital Libraries (ECDL 2009).

The Workshop will take place at the site of the main conference, Corfu Holiday Palace hotel, Kanoni, Corfu, Greece.

Workshop topic and goals
There is an increasing interest towards music stored in digital format, which is witnessed by the widespread diffusion of standards for audio like MP3 and of web-based services to listen or purchase music. There is a number of reasons to explain such a diffusion of digital music. First of all, music crosses the barriers of national languages and cultural backgrounds and can be shared by people with different culture.

Moreover, music is an art form that can be both cultivated and popular, and sometimes it is impossible to draw a line between the two, for instance in the case of jazz or of ethnic music. These reasons, among others, may explain the increasing number of projects involving the creation of music digital libraries. A music Digital Library (DL) allows for, and benefits from, the access by users from all over the world, it helps the preservation of cultural heritage, and it is not tailored only to scholars' or researchers' needs.

The availability of music collections to a wide number of users, needs to be paired by the development of novel methodologies for accessing, retrieving, organizing, browsing, and recommending music. The research area devoted to this aspect is usually called Music Information Retrieval (MIR) although retrieval is only one of the relevant aspects. Given the particular nature of music language, which does not aim at describing objects or concepts, typical metadata give only a partial description of music documents. Thus great part of MIR research is devoted to content-based approaches, aimed at extracting relevant descriptors, computing perceptually based similarity measures, identifying music genres and artists, naming unknown songs, and recommending relevant music items.

In recent years, most of the published research results focused on the extraction of relevant features from audio recordings, aimed at providing tools for retrieval of and access to popular music for music consumers. Yet, we believe that there is still the need of a forum devoted to the investigations of new paradigms of interacting with music collections for a wider variety of users, including musicologists, theorists, and music professionals, in order to promote the dissemination of cultural heritage. This goal is achieved by means of research on the formalization of users’ needs, on novel paradigms for browsing personal collections and music digital libraries, and on the role that music theory plays on the concepts of relevance and similarity. To this end, music content should thus include the symbolic representation of music works and the information on the structure of music pieces.

The goal of the workshop is to gather researchers in all the disciplines related to music digital libraries, where original results on how musical information spaces can be explored are shared and discussed.

The topics of the workshop include:
* music digital libraries and sound archives
* music identification and retrieval
* music similarity measures
* music categorization
* content-based recommendation systems
* music-related social networks
* interfaces and user studies
* musicological information representation and inferring
* future concepts for music access

Formats, templates
Contributions will be peer reviewed by the at least two reviewers, either of the program committee or external if needed. Accepted papers will be orally presented through with twenty-minutes long talks.

Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version to a planned special issue on Music Digital Libraries of the Intl. Journal of Digital Libraries.
