Faculty of Music, University of Oxford
Improvisation is arguably the most widely distributed form of musical practice - and yet remains the least studied or understood. Indeed, even the boundaries of what is or is not regarded as improvisation remain unclear. This conference will address the many faces of improvisation from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives - historical, psychological, ethnomusicological, analytical, technological, sociological, organological, and pedagogical. Over the course of four days, the conference will include papers, practical sessions, and poster presentations.
The conference is affiliated to the AHRC-funded Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice (CMPCP) and enjoys the support of SEMPRE, IMR, BFE, and SMA.
"Our vision for Musica Antiqua is very clear: with both of the founders being active professional early musicians, we feel we have a direct line to those performers and musicologists who are currently at the forefront of early music. Our aim is to provide articles written by the performers and musiciologists themselves. We intend also to bring a unique and creative design and layout to the articles in the magazine. Musica Antiqua will concentrate on music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, and on bringing you all the latest news and developments from around the world." (Claire Bracher, Editor)

CALL FOR PAPERS (CFP)
The period from 1750 to 1850 witnessed unprecedented growth in the musical marketplace. This was an age in which the proliferation of print technologies, the widening distribution of instruments for domestic use, and the gradual establishment of public music institutions across England and the Continent altered the patterns of circulation for music in its printed and sounding form.
