Fwd: CFP: songwriting special issue of JPME

the Journal of Popular Music Education invite papers for a special issue on songwriting, guest edited by Andrew West.

Songwriting has received increasing scholarly attention in recent years, commensurate with growth of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and expansion of songwriting provision in schools. Songwriting practices have evolved to encompass domains formerly the preserve of producers, engineers, composers, and arrangers. Songwriting can be found at the heart of work in music therapy, community projects, and big business. The realm of the genius, the muse, the pop culture icon, and the person on the street, songwriting to many people is at the core of what it means to be human.

We invite submissions reporting on empirical research and diverse disciplinary perspectives on topics including but not limited to songwriting issues in contexts of curriculum design, teaching and learning, assessment, history, music theory, collaboration and entrepreneurship, ideology, diversity, creativities, therapy, gender, improvisation, combined arts, disability, STEM, performance and performativity, spirituality, copyright, leisure perspectives, polemic, and politics.

In this songwriting special issue of the Journal of Popular Music Education, the editors continue to seek to define, delimit, debunk, disseminate, and disrupt practice and discourse in and around popular music education.

Please refer to JPME submission guidelines and Intellect style guide when preparing an submissions. 

Articles should be emailed to jpmesongwritingspecialissue@gmail.com by 1 June 2018.

Christmas concert, UCL Chamber Music Club

Hi everyone,

Preparation for the CMC Christmas concert in the evening of Thurs 7th
December is under way and we are now recruiting musicians of all
instruments/voices who are interested in performing in this event. The
Christmas concert is a tradition that both new and old members always
enjoy for its festive atmosphere and the mince pies and wine
afterwards!

This year we have also decided to tailor the programme to your
interests and instruments, and so along with carols (which of course
the Christmas concert can't do without!), we could be looking at
cantatas, anthems and concertos. And of course, if you have a
particular piece in mind you wish to perform, do get in touch as well!

Rehearsals are usually Thursday evenings, to begin next Thursday, 9th
of November. Tentatively singers will rehearse 5-7pm and
instrumentalists 7-9pm, but that will be confirmed later and again
depends on the interests we receive. And of course, if you intend to
perform in a small ensemble (duo, piano trio etc), you are free to set
your own rehearsal schedule; we might be able to offer rehearsal
space.

So do get in touch if you want to be a part of this festive tradition
and perform with us!

Best regards,

Jason Chan, UCL committee member and concert organiser jason.lockyn@gmail.com

Fwd: Sound Talking - 3 November at the London Science Museum - final schedule

** This list is managed by Dr Evangelos Himonides (UCL), on behalf of
the Society for Education and Music Psychology Research (sempre), and
aims to serve as a discussion forum for researchers working at the
shared boundaries of science and music. This list was previously
managed by the Institute of Musical Research. ** MESSAGE FOLLOWS:
Please find the updated programme below.
For catering purposes we kindly request that you book before the end
of the week.

SOUND TALKING
an interdisciplinary workshop on 'language describing sound / sound
emulating language'

Friday 3 November 2017, London Science Museum

Info and registration: bit.ly/SoundTalking

Sound Talking is a one-day event at the London Science Museum that
seeks to explore the complex relationships between language and sound,
both historically and in the present day. It aims to identify the
perspectives and methodologies of current research in the
ever-widening field of sound studies, and to locate productive
interactions between disciplines.

Bringing together audio engineers, psychiatrists, linguists,
musicologists, and historians of literature and medicine, we will be
asking questions about sound as a point of linguistic engagement. We
will consider the terminology used to discuss sound, the invention of
words that capture sonic experience, and the use and manipulation of
sound to emulate linguistic descriptions. Talks will address singing
voice research, improving film accessibility through audio, new music
production tools, auditory neuroscience, sounds in literature, and the
sounds of the insane asylum.

Updated programme
- Maria Chait (UCL Ear Institute) - The auditory system as the brain's
early warning system
- Jonathan Andrews (Newcastle University) - Bedlam as soundscape:
Noise at early modern Bethlem
COFFEE BREAK
- Melissa Dickson (University of Oxford) - Sounding out the body: The
nineteenth-century stethoscope and the language of the heart
- Mariana Lopez (University of York) - The language of sound: Creating
accessible film experiences for visually impaired audiences
LUNCH BUFFET
HISTORIC ARTEFACT DISPLAY (Aleks Kolkowski) - make your own wax
cylinder recording, and more!
- David Howard (Royal Holloway University of London) - The sound of
voice and voice of sound
- Brecht De Man (Queen Mary University of London) - "A bit more
ooomph": The language of music production
COFFEE BREAK
- Mandy Parnell (Black Saloon Studios) - Artistic direction: The
various languages
- Trevor Cox (Salford University) - Categories for quotidian sounds
WINE RECEPTION

The £30 fee covers lunch, breaks, and the wine reception.

For more information, visit bit.ly/SoundTalking or contact the workshop chairs:

platform that provides a good opportunity to meet various colleagues
and researchers working on related ideas. Persons pursuing higher
levels of research/studies are also welcome to submit a proposal.
Presentations should take place in English.
