Conferences 2012: (UK) Institute of Musical Research Conference: Music and Shape (12-14 jul 2012)

Contributed by Admin on May 30, 2012

Location: Institute of Musical Research and King's College London, London UK

“Musicians habitually describe music as being shaped, especially when speaking of performance. This conference aims to explore, from as many perspectives as possible, relationships between music and shape. It contributes to the AHRC-funded Research Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice and its project, based at King’s College London, on ‘Shaping Music in Performance’ (, and is organised in collaboration with the Institute of Musical Research.“ (IMR website)

“The wide-ranging programme includes keynote speaker Rolf-Inge Godøy, three lecture-recitals (voice, piano, harpsichord), and papers and posters on visualisation, metaphor, historic performance, embodiment, popular song, contemporary music, theory, structure, gesture, emotion,
and cross-domain mapping.” (From an American Musicological Society posting of 29 may 2012)
