CfP: Frames of Listening: Popular Music and Visual Culture (University of Ottawa)

International Association for the Study of Popular Music – Canada (IASPM-Canada):
“32nd Annual Conference: Frames of Listening: Popular Music and Visual Culture”
May 27/28 – 30, 2015 – University of Ottawa, Carleton University
Deadline: 15 Oct 2014

“Frames of Listening: Popular Music and Visual Culture” aims at exploring the intersections of sound and images across a range of popular music genres and cultural forms. With the advent of YouTube in 2005 and the proliferation of handheld technologies and social networking sites, musical-visual culture in a variety of forms has become readily accessible to millions worldwide. Even before the digital revolution, musical artists collaborated with visual artists to develop iconic images that had the power to shape identities, to communicate social messages, to strengthen genre affiliations, and to sell records. How do we receive and interpret the intersections of music and moving images in popular music? How do these multi-sensorial artistic expressions do cultural work and shape the world?

While proposals on any topic relating to popular music are welcome, the conference organizers especially invite proposals for individual presentations, panels, workshops or performances on topics related to the theme of the conference, including (but not restricted to) the following:

  • music / image aesthetics, theory, and analysis
  • uses of popular music in screen media: theory, history, and practice
  • audio-visual production and reception
  • technologies of new media and popular music
  • mediation of and in popular music genres
  • audio-visual representations of gender, sexuality, race, class, age, and ability
  • popular music iconography; art; graffiti; artist portraits
  • mediated branding and product placement
  • musician-visual artist collaborations
  • performance art and the moving/sounding image
