DEGEM News – NEWS – EMS 2018 Call for papers: Extended Deadlines

Betreff: [cec-c] EMS 2018 Call for papers: Extended Deadlines

Electroacoustic Music Studies Conference 2018: Extended Deadlines!

Deadline for paper submission: FEBRUARY 1, 2018
Announcement of the results: MARCH 15, 2018

Conference website: http://www.ems-network.org/ems18/index.html

Call for Papers:

The Electroacoustic Music Studies Network 2018 will take place in Florence (Italy), 20-23 June 2018, Villa Finaly.

Main theme: Electroacoustic Music: Is it still a form of Experimental Music?

In the early years of musique concrète Schaeffer proposed that this new approach was a form of experimental music. Of course, during this period and later, others were to use this term as well, meaning something slightly different. Still, the rationale that organising sounds was an innovative form of music making was clearly a logical and just thing to say.

How true is this today? Has experimentation and innovation been overtaken by skill and technique?
Today, the term electroacoustic music now encompasses a wide variety of practices and even genres. Seventy years after the birth of concrete music, it has now become very difficult to circumscribe what electroacoustic music is or can be, because it is so diversified and has so many different styles. Clearly electroacoustic music has come a long way over the last 70 years and many will clearly state that (aspects of) their work are indeed experimental.

On the other hand, there are many who have claimed, for example, that a good deal of acousmatic music has common tendencies and some even go so far to suggest that much of it sounds similar. In the field of musicology, new impulses to research are provided by various forms of technical experimentation. New musical interfaces, bio sensors, the return of hybrid synthesis and DIY devices exemplify challenges for performance studies or creative process analysis.

Has experimentalism taken a back seat to technique and, if so, is that a bad thing? Or is technique now sufficiently mature to stimulate new forms of musical experimentation?

What new forms of experimental have arisen? To what extent do new technologies and techniques allow for experimentalism in electroacoustic music?

DEGEM News – STELLENAUSSCHREIBUNG – some hours teaching – sound arts, AV

Von: Joseph Hyde via cec conference
Datum: Mon, 15 Jan 2018
Betreff: [cec-c] some hours teaching – sound arts, AV

I’m looking for someone to cover a bit of lecturing from February to May, at Bath Spa University (UK). 2nd/3rd year undergrad and Masters. Areas include sound arts (fairly broad experimental practice across electroacoustic, site specific, gallery based work), AV, and collaborative practice. It looks as though it’s going to be bits and pieces rather than a coherent (even temporary) ‚post‘, and while the hourly rate is reasonable, the funding doesn’t really cover travel. So it would probably suit someone in the south-west of the UK. If you think you might be interested, then please email me – j.hyde@bathspa.ac.uk

Elektroakustische Musik

„Das Klangmaterial, das der in Niedersachsen ansässige Komponist Clemens
von Reusner (* 1957) seinem gut einstündigen Hörstück „Continuous Flow
Machines“ zugrunde gelegt hat, wurde im Pfleiderer-Institut für
Strömungsmaschinen der Technischen Universität in Braunschweig aufgenommen.

Strömungsmaschinen arbeiten mit rotierenden Körpern wie Rotorblättern in
Gasen und Flüssigkeiten und erzeugen akustisch meist ein gleichförmiges
Rauschen in einem breiten Frequenzbereich. Die 2011 realisierten
„Continuous Flow Machines“ machen die unscheinbaren Bewegungen hörbar,
erzeugen ein tönendes Fließ-Kontinuum.

Ohne Ziel bewegt es sich in immer neuen Klangschichtungen und
veränderter Dichte. Dabei spricht es für nichts anderes, als für sich

Simeon Nelson with Rob Godman and Nick Rothwell

Cosmoscope is a Wellcome trust funded Artichoke commission, supported by the University of Hertfordshire and Durham University

Where:
Store Street, London WC1E 7BS

When:
Thursday 18th January to 21st January 2018, 17.30hrs to 23.00hrs

Taking inspiration from the study of the universe, blood flowing through the human heart and the order and disorder of atoms and molecules, Cosmoscope explored the patterns, structures and similarities of these scientific areas.

Cosmoscope asked us to consider the very, very small scale and imagine the very, very large scale, to contemplate our own place in the universe and encouraged us to question how we perceive the world around us. This vast project was developed by a team of scientists and artists and led by Simeon Nelson, Professor of Sculpture at the University of Hertfordshire.

If you would like to learn more from the team behind Cosmoscope and the research that contributed towards the sculpture, further information can be seen on Simeon’s website.

Applicants should not have held an established academic appointment. The intention is to support the career development of those building an academic career within the UK. The Trust gives priority to applicants who show evidence of mobility during their academic careers to date. Applicants must either hold a degree from a UK higher education institution at the time of taking up the Fellowship or at the time of the application deadline must hold an academic position in the UK (e.g. fixed-term lectureship, fellowship) for which the contract duration at the time of appointment was no less than 9 months. For more information on the scheme, including full information on eligibility, see The Leverhulme Trust website:

https://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/funding/grant-schemes/early-career-fellowships.

· Fellowships are three years in duration and can start anytime from 1 September 2018 to 1 May 2019.

· The Leverhulme Trust online application deadline for the 2018 competition will be 4pm on 1 March 2018.

Expressions of interest should be sent to Professor Monty Adkins (m.adkins@hud.ac.uk) by noon on Monday 29 January 2018, consisting of one PDF document containing:

1) a one-page CV including education, publications, any awards, thesis title and examiners;

2) an up to two-page draft statement of research (which may use headings similar to those in the Leverhulme scheme’s notes of guidance);

3) an indication of any additional research expenses that may be needed for the proposed project, such as travel and subsistence (Leverhulme provide up to £6,000 per year).

A selection process internal to the School of Music, Humanities and Media will determine which proposals go forward to a full application to The Leverhulme Trust. A programme of mentoring, including support from our Research Development Manager, will be offered to applicants deemed successful in this internal process.

Greetings & Happy new 2018 !

all music composed by gintas k / computer / 2017
released by gk rec. 01 ( founded by gintas k)
cover art and design by juodo
released January 2, 2018
Total time 71:58

description:
Album title Acousma Light refers to Acousmatic music in which a sound source isn’t visible during the concert or listening session.
In 1955 a pioneer of musique concrète, French composer Pierre Schaeffer coined a term acousmatique, derived from the Greek word akousmatikoi (the hearers). The latter was used by Pythagoras to describe uninitiated disciples. According historical sources, the aspirants had to follow a vow of silence for five years while listening to the teachings of the master behind a screen (a curtain), without seeing him.
In a composition Acousma Light sound components are being grained into sonic particles – as elemental as possible. The sound of the piece may be described in such characteristics as timbre, spectrum of sound, varying and changing speed of motion.
In the first stage of composition, in which a recording of live performance takes place, a principle of sound deconstruction is being employed. Recorded material is then being organized into a structure that gradually evolves into a crystallized form.
Nine episodes are presented in the Album.
