CALL FOR PAPERS / PRESENTATIONS
A study day bringing together people working in higher education, practitioners and academics interested in collaborative processes in music making.
Its focus is collaborative processes in music making, their role in creative practice and in teaching, and the links between. The day aims to provide an opportunity to reflect upon aspects of the music making process that have in the past received little critical attention.
Keynotes from Peter Wiegold and Paul Whitty
Presentations are currently invited (from teaching and creative practice contexts, and across them) that through examples of collaboration explore the following themes:
- Contexts for collaborative process;
- Characteristics of and procedures for collaborative process;
- The benefits and challenges (weaknesses?) of collaborative work.
The day is also interested to recognise and incorporate the richness and complexities of how particular traditions (e.g. Post-atonal, Experimental, Free and/or Idiomatic Improvisation, Post-Vernacular, etc.) relate to, describe and understand collaborative process.
Please contact Ralph Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 30
September 2009 with proposals for a short paper/presentation of about 30
minutes duration (including time for questions).
