New Takes on Recorded Music: Performance, Creativity, Technology

A Performance Studies Network Research Forum

CfP deadline: 30 March 2019

Dates: 5 – 6 September 2019, University of Surrey

Programme Committee:

Amanda Bayley (Bath Spa University, UK),

Daniel Barolsky (Beloit College, US),

Amy Blier-Carruthers (King’s College and Royal Academy of Music, UK),

This Performance Studies Network Research Forum seeks to renew and nurture
dialogue among a range of different disciplines and artistic fields within
which practitioners and scholars continue to explore the identity, role,
and function of recorded music. This event aims to stimulate critical
discussion on existing and new trends in research, especially the
intersection between creative practice and technology, as well as artistic
and scientific inquiry. We welcome proposals which seek to explore,
challenge, or rehabilitate traditionally assumed binaries in the face of
technological mediation, such as ‘text vs. performance’, ‘product vs.
process’, ‘creation vs. reproduction’, ‘recorded vs. live’, ‘material vs.
virtual’, or ‘embodied vs. disembodied performance’.
