Symposium on Archiving and Re-Performing Electroacoustic Music AREM2020
Dresden/via Zoom, 23-24.10.2020

AREM2020’s theme is ARCHIVING.

Archiving cultural objects of contemporary history plays an increasing role
in current research. This includes also a constant reflection of the
handling of archives, their structures, and their accessibility.

Archiving music that involves digital technologies causes additional
challenges for institutions, libraries and archives, ranging from providing
server facilities and maintaining hard- and software to questions of
systematizing the now divers, partly digital sources. How can and should
these new sources be preserved and archived? Who selects the sources that
are maintained? Who takes care about maintaining the accessibility of the
archived sources? How is archiving digital media influenced by legal
issues? How do other research fields such as media studies, film studies or
game studies deal with those questions? And how is archiving music related
to the new developments in digital music editions?

AREM2020 brings together international researchers from different fields
and backgrounds to discuss questions concerning archiving and re-performing
electro-acoustic music, computer music and digitized music, as well as
share approaches and knowledge on preserving digital media.

In response to COVID-19, this year’s second edition of AREM was transformed
into a hybrid format, taking place simultaneously in Dresden and online on
Zoom. For participating: please register to get the access link.
Registration is free of charge.
