Early Recordings: Past Performing Practices in Contemporary Research
Pushkin House, London, 22nd June 2019

Call for papers

The last few years have seen groundbreaking developments in the study of
early recordings (acoustic, piano roll, and electric) as documents of
performance practice; these include, among others, the introduction of
quantitative research methods, the digitization of neglected sound
collections and a broadening of the range of repertoires under
consideration. This one-day conference will provide a forum for the
discussion of these recent developments, addressing the use of early
recordings in both musicological research and creative practice, while
seeking to connect researchers and performers through critical and
reflective debate.

Early Recordings: Past Performing Practices in Contemporary Research shall
take place on 22nd June 2019 at the Pushkin House in London. We invite
scholars and performers interested in any aspect of early recordings
(pre-1945) as documents of performance practice to submit abstracts
250-word abstracts for 20-minute papers and 45-minute lecture-recitals by
Friday 21st December 2018 to both Dr Inja Stanovic (i.stanovic -at-
huddersfield.ac.uk) and Dr Eva Moreda Rodríguez (Eva.MoredaRodriguez -at-
glasgow.ac.uk). Standard audio-visual equipment and a grand piano will be
