ESCOM Winter School on Musical Ability (Register before 16 Dec)

ESCOM is organising a winter school that explores multidisciplinary perspectives on ‘Musical Ability’. Participation is free, but pre-registration is required. The school takes place online from 1-5 February (between 2 to 4 hours per day). 
The school features presentations from invited speakers and school organisers, and workshops in which participants will work in groups on partially pre-defined research projects. Topics of presentations and group projects will relate to: variations in understanding and beliefs about musical ability (depending on cultural and educational contexts), measurement and observation of musical ability in research and education, and musical ability as embodied, affective and multisensory. 
Details can be found on the website, as well as a link to register your interest to participate

“Re-envisaging Music: Listening in the Visual Age” (1-12 dicembre 2020, Chigiana 2020, Convegno, online)

1-12 December 2020 (pre-recorded papers online)
10-12 December 2020 (live sessions, UTC+1)

Music and images, seeing and hearing have always been inextricably linked. Even when more autonomous concepts of music developed at various times through the centuries, they arguably served to keep at bay the ever-present visual dimensions of the act of listening. When we listen to music, do we just listen? When we see a painting, or anything else, do we just watch?

Convegno “I suoni del documentario italiano: 1945-1975” (Fondazione Giorgio Cini, 5-7 Novembre, online)

Il convegno, coordinato da Marco Cosci, si propone di approfondire la componente sonora dei documentari italiani realizzati tra la fine degli anni Quaranta e gli anni Settanta, coinvolgendo studiosi provenienti da diversi ambiti disciplinari.

Negli ultimi decenni gli studi musicologici si sono indirizzati perlopiù verso la dimensione sonora del cinema di finzione, tralasciando quasi del tutto il campo d’indagine offerto dal film documentario. La produzione documentaristica presenta infatti condizioni variabili e peculiari che la distinguono da quella maggiormente standardizzata del lungometraggio.

L’obiettivo del convegno è quello di ricostruire gli aspetti del sistema produttivo e le strategie creative tramite cui i prodotti audiovisivi mettono a fuoco, anche grazie alla colonna sonora, temi cruciali del secondo dopoguerra: la valorizzazione del patrimonio artistico, il processo di modernizzazione della società e la ricodificazione del paesaggio sonoro in relazione alle indagini etnografiche. Particolare attenzione verrà prestata ai documentari che si occupano esplicitamente di eventi musicali: da un lato si studieranno le modalità di rappresentazione delle performance, dall’altro si analizzerà la crescente attenzione verso le potenzialità del mezzo audiovisivo come strumento di ricerca e documentazione.

Relatori: Marco Bertozzi, Giorgio Biancorosso, Alessandro Bratus, Roberto Calabretto, Angela Carone, Alessandro Cecchi, Giuliano Danieli, Marco Lutzu, Ilario Meandri, Ivelise Perniola, Antonella Sisto, Gaia Varon, Francesco Verona.

Sarà possibile partecipare al convegno tramite la piattaforma Zoom, fino a esaurimento posti, richiedendo il link a coordinamentomusica@cini.it

Gli interventi potranno essere seguiti anche in diretta streaming sulla pagina Facebook della Fondazione Giorgio Cini.

Archivi musicali del Novecento e nuove tecnologie: custodire il passato, formare al futuro (Tavola rotonda, 25 Settembre, Meeting di Pedagogia e Didattica della musica del SagGEM)

Tavola rotonda: Archivi musicali del Novecento e nuove tecnologie: custodire il passato, formare al futuro

A c. di P. Somigli; con G. Borio, R. Calabretto, M. Novati, A.C. Pellegrini, F. Sallis & J. Boyd (relatori); e G. Chiriacò, G. Gabrielli, M. Ruffini, G. Sarno, V. Vecchiarelli (respondent)

Descrizione
“La tavola rotonda punta su un interrogativo di fondo: quale impatto esercitano le nuove tecnologie sugli archivi musicali dediti in particolare alla musica del Novecento? Le tecnologie hanno profondamente inciso sull’organizzazione e il funzionamento degli archivi in genere, ma nel contempo hanno mutato la tipologia stessa degli ‘oggetti’ da archiviare: e questa evoluzione comporta un generale un ripensamento del concetto stesso di ‘archivio’. Un ulteriore aspetto giova considerare: l’influenza che le nuove tecnologie esercitano sullo sviluppo delle attività di formazione del pubblico e di terza missione”.

L’evento che si terrà il 25 settembre su Zoom, ore 15-19, nel quadro del Meeting di Pedagogia e Didattica della musica del SagGEM.

Music and Power in the Long Nineteenth Century (Siena – Accademia Musicale Chigiana, 2-4 Dicembre 2021)

The use of the arts, including music, as an instrument of representation and exercise of power, is widely debated within the context of the society of the ancien régime and the twentieth century, with frequent emphasis on absolutism and dictatorships. This conference aims to investigate this issue in the “long nineteenth century” (c. 1789-1914): the age of the Industrial Revolution, liberalism and social conflicts, nationalism and colonialism.

The geographical scope considered is the Western world (Europe and the Americas), including those extra-European territories subject to or influenced by colonial rule. The entire field of musical experience will be considered, without limitations on genre, from sacred to instrumental music, from musical theater to song and beyond.

“Power” is understood not only in a strictly political sense, such as state power, or as the domination of one nation or ethnic group over others; instead, in light of contemporary and emerging historiographical and philosophical debates, the scope of the concept extends broadly to all aspects of social life in which relations of dominion/submission are significant. By way of example, the following types of relationships might be considered: those between social classes, between economic powers, between religious affiliations, between genders, within the family, and others, in all possible combinations and permutations.

Proposals to further broaden the field of investigation are welcome; preference will be given to those that combine a breadth of conceptual horizons with a rigorous presentation of unpublished sources.

Possible topics for consideration include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Musicians and power
  • Musical practices as instruments of power and organizations of consent
  • The language of power in musical material
  • The use of music and entertainment in celebration
  • Symbolic representations of power relationships in opera
  • Sacred music as an expression of power
  • Song and choral music as a means of exercising and negotiating power
  • Folk, popular, and dance music within an increasingly powerful music industry
  • Negotiations of power in discourses about music
  • Domain relationships in musical education

The official languages of the conference are English and Italian. A selection of the conference papers will be published in the 2022 volume of Chigiana. Journal of Musicological Studies (https://journal.chigiana.org/).

Please send proposal to chigiana.journal@chigiana.org by 30 November 2020. Proposals should include:

– Title of paper

– Name of speaker(s)

– A proposal of c. 300 words

The papers should not exceed 30 minutes in duration.

We are aware that the current scenario presents many uncertainties; we are constantly monitoring the situation and the measures that the Italian and other governments have put in place and we hope that by December 2021 it will be possible to travel, so that the conference may go ahead as planned and we can meet in Siena. However, if necessary, we will be running the conference online.
