Betreff: [cec-c] Convergence Conference – Call for Contributions

Further to the announcement last week, information on the Convergence Conference/Festival of Music, Technology and Ideas at De Montfort University, Leicester UK, is now online at:

Submissions can be made via the site – please feel free to pass on/link to the URL!
Deadline is 31 March.

The theme in 2019 is Complexity and Simplicity and a wide range of paper and music submissions is encouraged.

Convergence aims to bring together many of the diverse strands of music made with new technologies and to celebrate these alongside some traditional practices. In 2019 we will also be working with the Darbar Fringe Festival to bring high quality traditional and experimental Indian music projects to the conference.

We are delighted that Curtis Roads will be our guest composer – thanks to the support of the US Embassy in London and the British Association of American Studies.

Hope to see you in Leicester!

Best wishes,
