Deadline Extended to May 8, 2020

The Sound Object and Music Media
Joint Session of the AMS Music and Media and SMT Film and Multimedia
Interest Groups

By listening across sound media -- the many objects, materials, bodies, and
technologies involved in music making and listening -- serious attention is
paid to media that is not clearly musical. The aurality and materiality of
sound documents is inscribed into the ecologies of performance and the
narratives we craft about music cultures. This series of lightning talks
collectively address the objects, things, material culture, and
technologies of musical performance, circulation, consumption, and
perception. Sound documents are multimodal: audiotape, film, typed
transcripts, handwritten posters, artist books, personal diaries, radio
programs and transcripts, maps, album covers, instruments, hard drives, and
more. This roundtable asks, how musical sounds, practices, and meanings
inform and are informed by relationships between musicking people and
musicking things. This roundtable is concerned with fostering an awareness
of the materials, objects, and things used to create and experience music,
where they come from, and where they end up in the ecology of performance.
We will collectively examine the relationships among musical objects,
music, musicians, and media.

We invite abstracts of no more than 250 words for 10-minute position papers.

Please send submissions (as Word documents) to amsmediasg -at- by
May 8, 2020 (extended deadline). Accepted speakers will be notified by May
10, 2020.
