Betreff: Call for papers: Analysing mixed music / Analyser la musique
Société Française d’Analyse Musicale IRCAM



Paris, 5-6 April 2012


Mixed music (a mix of instrumental and electronic elements) has
existed for more than half a century. However, many of its aspects
remain unknown.
Musical analysis has found in it a slippery object: coexistence of two
sound worlds and two types of notations, difficulties in
interpretation, multiple technological paradigms, rapid obsolescence
of involved technical means…

How might we give an account of these pieces without reducing them
either to scores, or to sound tracks? Which analysis methods and
representation tools do we need to understand them?

Proposals of up to 700 words (or 4000 characters, spaces not
included), together with a short CV, should be sent by email to:

Deadline for submissions: 31st October 2011.

The committee will evaluate proposals then notify authors of accepted
papers in December 2011.
