Re-thinking Music of Today
7-8 April 2011
Organized by Kevin Dahan and Fabien Lelarge
Université de Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée
Postmodernism developments and diffusion accelerated differentiation,
acknowledgment and hybridization of diverse musical styles. Thanks to
the continuing expansion of „hybrid“ or „crossover“ music, specialized
literature bloomed, but thinking on these multiple trends as a whole
Analytical tools available for the contemporary music musicologist
offer an interesting angle, but are limited to their sole objects ;
methods applied to the study of popular music often lack a sufficient
distance to their objects.
We think that a new musicological approach is needed, which would take
into account both historical findings from „traditional“ musicology,
but be flexible enough as to permit openings on all of today’s musical
practices. For example, viewpoints from non-academic actors could give
insight on conditions needed to permit diffusion of „academic“
contemporary music to a wider audience.
Paper sessions will be followed, expanded and supported by concerts
(at the same location).
We would welcome papers from young and confirmed researchers alike, in
domains such as (but not limited to) popular music, music sociology,
XXth century musicology, music psychology.
Please forward this message to anyone you think would be interested.
