“Music and the Moving Image”
May 29, 2015 – May 31, 2015 – NYU Steinhardt, NYC
Deadline for submission: Dec. 15, 2014.
The annual conference, Music and the Moving Image, encourages submissions from scholars and practitioners that explore the relationship between music, sound, and the entire universe of moving images (film, television, video games, mobile devices, internet, and interactive performance) through paper presentations.
This year’s conference will include a keynote speech by Siu-Lan Tan (The Psychology of Music in Multimedia), Prof. of Psychology, Kalamazoo College. We invite abstracts that focus on the role and function of psychology of perception in music for the moving image. The Program Committee includes Danijela Kulezic-Wilson (The Musicality of Narrative Film – forthcoming in Palgrave Macmillan), Mark Evans (Series Editor: Genre, Music & Sound for Equinox Publishing), Miguel Mera (author of European Film Music, Mychael Danna’s The Ice Storm: A Film Score Guide?; composer of Little Ashes), and coeditors of Music and the Moving Image, Gillian B. Anderson (Haexan; Pandora’s Box; Composing for the Cinema, Music for Silent Film 1892-1929: A Guide); and NYU faculty, Ron Sadoff (The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation; Chuck Jones: Memories of Childhood). The conference will run a few days before the NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Memory of Buddy Baker (June 3 – 12, 2015).
