We are pleased to announce the Third International Symposium on Music
and Sonic Art: Practices and Theories (MuSA), an interdisciplinary two-
day event to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The principal aim of MuSA 2012 is to advance interdisciplinary
investigations between music, sonic arts and other disciplines such as
dance, theatre, digital media, visual arts and architecture. There
will be three distinct (though related) themes to MuSA 2012:

First, we welcome presentations in ‘traditional’ subject areas such
as historical/critical musicology, performance studies, aesthetics,
analysis and ethnomusicology. Second, as the symposium’s title
suggests, we hope to encourage the submission of papers investigating
relationships (and possible tensions) between music and sonic/sound
art. Third, presentations are also invited from scholars who are
researching the connections between music/sonic art and disciplines
such as architecture, painting, theatre and literature. Papers dealing
with any subject area that is within the broad remit of the symposium
will also be welcomed.

Please submit an abstract of approximately 300 words as an e-mail
attachment to Prof. Dr. Mine Doğantan-Dack (m.dack@mdx.ac.uk). As
contributions will be ‘blind’ peer-reviewed, please do not include
information that might facilitate identification from this abstract.
In addition, please include separately the name(s) of the author(s),
institutional affiliation (if any) and short biography (approximately
150 words). Deadline for receipt of abstracts is 15 April.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by 30 April.

The symposium fees are: €100 for delegates, €80 for presenters and
€50 for students and others who qualify for concessions. Details for
payment can be found on the symposium web site: http://web.me.com/johngeorgedack/MuSA_2012
