CFP: Intertextuality in Music since 1900, Univ. de Lisboa, Mar 2015

Conference: ?Intertextuality in Music since 1900?
jointly organised by:
CESEM/FCSH, Universidade Nova de Lisboa
Institut für Musikwissenschaft, Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck
to be held at:

Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Lisbon (Portugal), 6-7 March 2015

Keynote speakers:
Nicholas Cook, University of Cambridge
Julian Johnson, University of London
Lawrence Kramer, Fordham University

Intertextuality is currently taken to refer to the idea that ?every text is the absorption and transformation of another text? (Julia Kristeva) ? an idea expanded by Gérard Genette as part of the wider concept of transtextuality. The focus on inter- and transtextuality has reflected a tendency to move away from the inherited notion of the work of art as a self-contained structure, towards a view that emphasises the relational nature of all cultural productions.

Since the 1970s, the notion of intertextuality has been appropriated by many disciplines, including musicology. In spite of the widespread use of the term, however, it would seem that the notion of intertextuality as applied to music has not yet been made the focus of sustained critical attention. This conference aims to address the theme, by focusing on the conceptual questions involved in the application of the notion of intertextuality to music studies. It also aims to provide a background for the analysis of relevant case studies, to be drawn from the widest possible range of 20th- and 21st-century repertoires.

The language of the conference will be English. A selection of papers will be considered for publication.

We invite scholars from various disciplines to contribute to this international conference. Please send abstracts (max. 300 words) for 20-minute papers (to be followed by 10 minutes? discussion), plus a short biographical note, to the conference organisers no later than 15 November 2014:

CFP: Fostering New Music and Its Audiences: The Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition 30th Anniversary Conference, Univ. of Louisville, Mar 2015

Fostering New Music and Its Audiences:
The Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition 30th Anniversary Conference
Submission deadline: November 10, 2014
Conference dates: 6-7 March 2015
University of Louisville School of Music
Conference website: http://louisville.edu/music/gnmcon

Keynote speakers: Robert Hasegawa (McGill University) and W. Anthony Sheppard (Williams College)

Since Witold Lutoslawski won the first Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition in 1985 for his Symphony No. 3, this international prize has been bestowed upon 27 other composers, including John Adams, Pierre Boulez, and Kaija Saariaho. (See http://grawemeyer.org/music/previous-winners.) Well over one hundred works are submitted each year for this award. The final panel of judges for the award consists of laypeople with a deep interest in contemporary classical music, in recognition of the founder?s commitment to music that reaches a nonspecialist audience while maintaining the highest artistic standards. The application guidelines stipulate that each entry (including a score, recording and supporting materials) becomes part of the extensive new music collection of the University of Louisville?s Dwight Anderson Music Library.

As part of the celebration marking the 30th year of the Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition, the University of Louisville School of Music is hosting a conference to promote scholarly dialogue on new music. We invite papers on concert music and opera since 1985 from musicologists, theorists, composers, and interdisciplinary scholars, with a preference for topics pertaining to the music of Grawemeyer Award-winning composers or to works contained in the Music Library?s Grawemeyer Collection. (The searchable web catalogue of the collection is found at http://grawemeyermusic.louisville.edu.) We also invite proposals for papers that explore the position of contemporary music in society and its relationship to current audiences.
