Call for papers




Centro Superior de Investigación y Promoción de la Música y
Departamento Interfacultativo de Música

2-4 March 2016


            The technical developments connected with electronic and concrete music, along with the interest shown by avant-garde in music of the XX century for exploring new musical dimensions (Varèse, Stockhausen, Xenakis, Berio, Nono…) can find in spatial dimension a fertile place of expressive development. Traditionally the scope of music can be placed in an abstract approach to scores (pitch, melody, movement), or in a merely evocative one (landscapes, nature, structures, cities…) with the Futurist movement, urban noises begin to be considered part of music, being integrated in it, and with the concept of Sound Landscape in the 70s at XXth century the conceptual expansion applied to music experiments a progress oriented towards sound. Space works as a sounding board for daily situations that make possible for sound to come to life and whose sonic expression enables a dynamic image of every place, in which tension and social interrelations sound- space make feasible a dynamic image of every place, in which tension and sound-space interrelations begin with a dialogue leading into a wide range of areas of knowledge. In previous occasions in which this Conference has been held, a wide and deep forum around the concept of sound landscape was put forward, sharing, therefore, the knowledge about arts of time with the one of arts of space. The interaction sound–space, the first time this conference was held and the interaction space-body in the second one, were the focus for artists and researchers.

         Following this trend, this 3rd Conference focus on the analysis of sound and sensorial experiences in urban spaces. Speaking about cities is nowadays one of the most popular topics for research and artistic action. The city, apart from being a potential receptacle of images and sensations dealing with all the senses, experiments deep social, political or technological changes (a reorganization of structures, fluctuations and populational migrations, an architecture of cultural spaces, etc.) in such a quick way that there is hardly time for a critical reflection or for creating an state of consciousness about it. We are living in a continuous mutation, social networks promote new categories and also new economies and the experience of the dwellers turn to be more and more complex, so they can inhabit a variety of places. In this context of transformations without precedent, and such as the social contexts reflected by Programa Marco Horizonte 2020 de la Unión Europea (Europe in a changing world, inclusive, innovative and reflexive societies) we must highlight the necessity to face a series of challenges that demand a common European planning, based on shared scientific knowledge among other ones that social sciences and humanities can offer.

Main topics.

*Music versus sound: electroacustic music, interaction of musical instruments with electronic sound, the treatment of space in music, space and multichannel systems, sound art, sound on stage and museums, sound landscape, urban art.

-      *The city as a place for action and reflection around sound and the multisensory perception. Sound and ubiquitous experience in the city (sound urbanism, sound Ethnography, sound nomadism, dynamics of reality-virtuality. Sound in artistic activities as a driving force for change in the city (activism, society and politics). Sound in the building of a public space (perception, analysis, representation of sound, notation).

-      *Processes of appropriation of public spaces by means of sound dialogue (sensibilization, pedagogy, creation) by means of a sensorial consciousness and the experience of the inhabitants (cultural landscapes, immaterial heritage).

-      *Other topics: an introduction to theories, methods, projects, centers and a variety of initiatives.

The conference includes scientific sessions (lectures, speeches and round tables) to be developed at Campus in UAM, and two concerts in Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS)
