Workshop 4: Music and Shape Conference
Music and Shape conference: London, 12-14 July 2012
CMPCP’s Shaping music in performance project hosted an international conference from 12 to 14 July 2012 at the Senate House, University of London. Some 55 delegates attended the three-day event, which aimed to explore relationships between music and shape from as many perspectives as possible. Rolf Inge Godøy gave a keynote paper entitled ‘Postures, trajectories, and sonic shapes’, and there were various performances throughout the event. The full conference programme can be seen here.
Nine articles, developed out of the conference, together with seventeen responses are published as Vol. 8 (2013) of the journal Empirical Musicology Review. The volume is made up of three issues:
- Vol. 8, No. 1, ‘Pedagogy and Performance’
- Vol. 8, No. 2, ‘Motion Shapes’
- Vol. 8, Nos. 3-4, ‘Perception and Theory’.
