INTIME 2015

Landscapes and Environments: Experimentation and Transformation in Sound and Music

The annual INTIME Symposium is a two-day symposium of papers and performances hosted by the INTIME music research group at Coventry (UK) University. The symposium seeks to discuss and theorise on current practice in experimental music. It aims to deepen our understanding of existing and emerging repertoires and practices.



Keynote Speaker: Ray Lee

Ray Lee is fascinated with what happens when sound moves. He creates spinning, whirling and pendulous sound installations/performances that explore 'circles of ether', the invisible forces that surround us. His large scale works have been toured to more than twenty different countries across three continents, and has won numerous awards including at Ars Electronica and the British Composer Awards, Sonic Arts Category.

 

 


Keynote Speaker: John Young

John Young is a composer whose output includes multi-channel acousmatic pieces, large-scale radiophonic work, and music combining instruments and electroacoustic sounds. His music focuses on the use computer technology to transform, disassemble and reassemble sounds in innovative ways to create sonic drama and musical development. This involves fusion of sounds recorded in natural environments with more abstract sounds developed through electroacoustic processes, drawing on the capacity of ‘real-world’ sound to evoke novel imagery and natural points of reference for listeners. Some of his recent work has used oral history and archival recordings in a narrative-based approach to electroacoustic music.


Call for Papers and Performances/Sound Installations

We invite researchers and practitioners in fields such as (but not limited to) music composition, music performance, musicology, music history, music analysis and theory, ethnomusicology, music psychology, philosophy of music, and music education, to submit abstracts for papers directly connected to works that would be performed in the INTIME concerts. We are particularly interested in submissions related to this year’s theme. This is an open call regardless of nationality, age, or career stage.

Types of Submission

We welcome the following types of papers/lecture-demonstrations:

  • Twenty minutes (plus five minutes of Q&A)
  • Seven minutes (plus three minutes of Q&A)

Each composer's piece will be presented on the INTIME concerts. If live performers are involved, these will be the responsibility of the composer. Programmed compositions/performances would typically be under 12 minutes in duration (although longer works may be considered) and we encourage performer(s)/creator(s) to give a seven (or twenty) minute paper on the work.

Deadline for abstracts and proposals; Sunday, 12th July 2015
