Perspectives on Sylvano Bussotti
International Conference on the Occasion of Sylvano Bussotti’s 90th Birthday

CFP deadline: 15 October 2020
Conference dates: 29 September – 1 October 2021
Venue: Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany

The Italian composer Sylvano Bussotti (*1931) was significantly involved in
the critical deconstruction of standardised notation with his graphic
scores of the 1950s. With the ‘mystère de chambre’ La Passion selon Sade
(1965), he presented a work that was characterised to a previously unknown
extent by an erotic physicality. And in the decades to come, within the
exceptional personal union of composer, director, actor, stage and costume
designer, he consistently explored the boundaries between different genres
(music theatre, ballet, instrumental music) and medially differentiated art
forms (e.g. between music and visual art).

The conference takes the composer’s 90th birthday as an opportunity to
bundle recent approaches and break new ground in research on Bussotti, and
to stimulate a broader debate on his oeuvre and aesthetics.

We encourage papers from a range of disciplines including musicology,
performance practice, theatre and linguistic studies, philosophy, media
aesthetics, philology or cultural studies.
