CeReNeM Presents: Rethinking the History of Technology-Based Music
9 – 11 June 2022: Join the Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM), in their re-examining of technology-based music history.
From 9 – 11 June 2022, the University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) will host the conference: ‘Rethinking the History of Technology-based Music’.
As Modernist thinking, evident in concrete, electronic and computer music from their inception, has been challenged by the post-acousmatic, neo-modern situation today, conceptual approaches and the use of sound to point to situations and events outside of itself have become more the rule than the exception in new musical practices, providing context, identity and often intent. These factors, alongside pluralistic, ecological, feminist and de-colonization agendas that question who determined the canon, who has been listening, to what and to whom make it timely for us to question, re-evaluate and rethink the history of technology-based music.
This conference takes place on Teams and Webinar links will be shared for each day separately via email.
