Call for Papers: Aberdeen University Music Research Group

Music and Language

University of Aberdeen
Monday 21st - Tuesday 22nd June 2004

Key-note speaker: Professor Peter Kivy

In June 2002 the Aberdeen University Music Research Group sponsored a highly successful cross disciplinary conference on 'The Intellectual Frontiers of Music'. In many of the discussions that ensued, it became clear that the relation of music to language is a recurrent theme in different disciplines. Are music and language parts of our biological nature, or are they social constructs? Does the human mind acquire musical and linguistic skills in the same way? Might the study of linguistics produce insights for the study of music and vice versa? Is music a universal language? Can we sensibly speak of distinct musical vocabularies? Is the expression 'the language of music' metaphorical, or literal?

The purpose of this follow-up conference is to explore these questions more closely, and to do so in a cross disciplinary context. The following disciplines are especially pertinent: Composition, Musicology, Music Education, Philosophy, Psychology, Socio-linguistics, Theology. However, paper proposals relevant to the theme of the conference will be welcome from all areas of inquiry. These should be of a reading time of no more than 30 minutes and will be chosen after a process of refereeing. Abstracts of one A4 page should be sent to Dr Jasmin Cameron at Hilton Campus, University of Aberdeen, ABERDEEN AB24 3UB, Scotland, UK. Alternatively they can be submitted by e-mail to Postgraduate students are especially encouraged to submit.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS Friday 30th January 2004. Decisions will be advised by Friday 20th February 2004.

Second Annual Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music

The second annual Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) will take place from June 21 through July 9 on the beautiful University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) campus. David Cope, Paul Nauert, and Peter Elsea will be among those on hand to teach and advise workshop attendees. Participants will take classes each morning and early afternoon on the basic techniques of algorithmic composition and algorithmic music analysis, learning and using the computer programming language Lisp. Participants will create three significant software projects: a Markov-based rules program, a genetic algorithm, and software modeled on the Experiments in Musical Intelligence program. Music analysis software and techniques will also be covered in depth. Many compositional approaches will be discussed in detail including rules-based techniques, data-driven models, genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, mathematical modeling, sonification, etc. Many software programs such as Common Music, Max, Open Music, and so on will also be presented and used.

Each participant will receive a free class reference manual, class software in source code, and various other associated printed and software tools and guides relevant to the workshop's goals. Access to the world class computer music facilities at UCSC will allow performances and special lectures by invited guests. Each of the three instruction weeks will include five hours of individual computer time (with an advisor close at hand) and each week will culminate in performances of participant works and presentations of analysis and composition software. By the workshop's end, each participant will have gained facility with Lisp, have written compositional and analytical software programs, and be presented with a CD of their compositions.

Prospective students must have an ability to read music and understand basic music theory as well as have at least a basic facility with computers (text editing, etc.). Students need not be active musicians nor programmers. Fee is $1750. Room and board is available on campus if desired.

2004 ARSC-SAM Conference

The 2004 ARSC-SAM Conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, from Wednesday, March 10th through Sunday, March 14th.

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) and the Society for American Music (SAM) have joined forces to produce a truly remarkable gathering, on America's "North Coast." More than 130 papers, presentations, panels, and performances will be given.

Current members of ARSC or SAM will automatically receive a twelve-page conference brochure, in the postal mail. To get a head start on your planning, you can download the entire document now, if you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your PC. To view the brochure, simply go to  and click on the PDF link. Make your travel plans now!

Please note that ARSC and SAM sessions will continue through Sunday morning, so plan your departure accordingly. If flying, allow at least two hours to get from the conference hotel to your gate at the airport. (A 4:00 p.m. or later flight should allow plenty of time.)

This first-ever joint ARSC-SAM Conference features a stellar lineup of sessions and events. Join with fellow archivists, librarians, collectors, musicians, engineers, students and scholars in celebrating our musical heritage -- past, present, and future!

Program highlights include three joint ARSC-SAM sessions: "Music Downloading and File Swapping: Differing Views"; "Recording the History of Folk and Traditional Music"; and "Collections and Archiving."  All registrants may freely attend any ARSC or SAM session, regardless of membership in one organization or the other.

ARSC's Education and Training Committee will present a pre-conference workshop "Topics in Oral History and Music Field Recordings," on March 10th, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Everyone registered for the conference is invited to a Welcome Reception in the Ambassador Ballroom of the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., Wednesday evening.

Following the Thursday sessions, we have a little treat in store. Normally, it costs $20 to tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum -- located on the shore of Lake Erie, about one mile from the Renaissance hotel. However, thanks to the kind generosity of the Rock Hall management, we will enjoy free, private, after-hours access to the landmark building and all exhibits, including an open discussion with senior curatorial and educational staff. Bus transport will be provided, at no extra charge.

On Friday afternoon, another no-charge bus excursion will take conference attendees to University Circle -- the campus of Case Western Reserve University. A special session there will focus on the Cleveland Orchestra. Those wishing to sightsee can spend the afternoon exploring such world-class cultural institutions as the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Western Reserve Historical Society and Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and the Cleveland Institute of Music. The afternoon will be capped by a reception hosted by the Case Department of Music. Buses will return to the conference hotel in time for "A Celebration of Music from Cleveland" -- a rare Friday-evening ARSC session.

The Saturday-evening joint reception and gala banquet will be memorable events, with the SAM Brass Band providing reception entertainment (ARSC folks and other musicians are invited to join in).

Please note that the cutoff date for discounted Early Registration and hotel reservations is Monday, February 9, 2004. Don't procrastinate! As an effort to reach potential new members in nearby communities, we offer a special one-day registration for non-members.
