CfP: Tracking The Creative Process In Music (Paris)

IRCAM, IReMus (Paris-Sorbonne University and CNRS), and CTEL (Nice-Sophia Antipolis University):
“3rd Tracking The Creative Process In Music”
8th-10th October 2015 – Paris, France
Deadline: 1 December 2014

This conference brings together researchers interested in artistic creativity and the study of processes of musical and sound creation of the past and present. Researchers working on this cluster of problems from a wide variety of disciplines (history, music analysis, psychology, philosophy, cognitive science, sociology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, etc.) are invited to assess the different methodologies developed in the last thirty years in their respective areas from an interdisciplinary perspective. Each approach contributes in its own way to the advancement of our understanding of the procedures, techniques, knowledge and know-how employed by musicians involved in creative projects.

Our guest speakers in 2015 will be Georgina Born (University of Oxford), Nicholas Cook (University of Cambridge, author of “Musical Performance as Creative Practice”, Oxford U.P., 2016), Pierre-Michel Menger (Collège de France, author of “The Economics of Creativity”, Harvard U.P., 2014), and Friedemann Sallis (University of Calgary, author of “Musical Sketches”, Cambridge U.P., 2015). TCPM will also include workshops/concerts on composition and performance led by Hyacinthe Ravet (Université Paris-Sorbonne) and Jean-François Trubert (Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis). The languages of the conference are English and French. Simultaneous translation of French papers will be provided.

  • First and last name of presenter
  • Institutional Affiliation
  • Mailing Address, telephone number and email address
  • Title of proposed conference talk
  • Abstract, 800 to 1200 words in length, clearly presenting the subject, the theories and models of creative processes described in the talk, the goals, the methodology used and the results of the study
  • Selected Bibliography (3 to 8 references to the exclusion of the presenter’s own work) and main sources used (archives, experimental or ethnographic data, etc.).
