Growing into music in Mali - Da Kali: the pledge to the art of the griots

Music SIG Seminar - all welcome!

Growing into music in Mali - Da Kali: the pledge to the art of the griots

Dr. Lucy Durán, School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS), Music
Department, University of London

Thursday 6th June

1.00 - 2.00

Room: 944

Further details from Lucy Green,

All are welcome

This paper will present some key findings about childhood music
learning from her film Da kali, the pledge to the art of the griot,
filmed on location in Mali between 2009-12, illustrating her talk with
a selection of excerpts featuring children in four celebrated griot
families learning song, dance, kora and jembe.
With the high international profile of Malian musicians, it is
tempting to think that griots (hereditary musical artisans, or jelis
as they call themselves) and their music are thriving. By exploring
how, what, and when young children of jeli families learn to perform
the music and dance of their heritage, the film Da Kali constitutes
unprecedented research on how children in Mali 'grow into music', and
suggests a more nuanced view of the current state of play with Malian
music (just before events in 2012). Despite the commitment of elder
jelis to the transmission of their art to the new generation, the
reality is that they are competing with many other factors, such as
globalised youth culture, the media, old social prejudices about the
artisans, and the lack of institutional support for their music,
threatening the future of this ancient art form.
The film is officially being launched as part of the AHRC Beyond Text
Growing into Music project on June 7, 2013, at SOAS.

Lucy Durán is a university lecturer specialising in West African
music, and is based in the Music Department of the School of Oriental
and African Studies, University of London. She has published widely on
Mali's star women singers, and on the kora. She is also a broadcaster
(she has been the regular presenter of BBC Radio 3's leading world
music programme World Routes since it began in 2000).
Durán has a long professional involvement with the music
industry, and has been at the forefront of the promotion and
dissemination of Malian music for the past 20 years. She is also a
music producer, and has produced many Malian artists including Grammy
award-winning kora player Toumani Diabate, and the highly acclaimed
Malian ngoni player Bassekou Kouyate.
Having devoted much of her professional life to balancing her
broadcasting, recording, and academic work, Durán argues for the need
to forge better links and understanding between the media and
academia. She is committed to the promotion, production and
dissemination of Malian music, and to finding ways of creating a
contemporary voice for Malian artists working within their own
traditions. Her work as Principal Investigator of the AHRC funded
project Growing into Music <> has sparked
off a special interest in oral transmission of music across

PhD Scholarships at London College of Music

PhD Scholarships in Performance in the Studio and the Psychoacoustics of Mixing and Record Production
London College of Music / University of West London Graduate Scholarships    
The University is appointing a number of Graduate Scholars and applications are invited by the London College of Music in either of the following two areas of specialism:

1. Performance in the Studio

Research Context

This project reflects the London College of Music's (LCM) international reputation in the emerging research field of record production and the perception of recorded music. LCM combines cutting edge research with enormous experience of professional practice in this area and is also working in conjunction with the School of Computing and Technology on using case-based reasoning in the field of applied audio engineering.

Dr. Simon Zagorski-Thomas was recently awarded a visiting fellowship at Cambridge University and was principal investigator on an AHRC funded research network on Performance in the Studio. He is currently working with a team of international researchers on the outputs from those projects and on a proposal for follow-on funding to develop the research further and to organise further impact events.

This project would sit, along with other research into recorded music, plus two AHRC bids in development and the proposed networking event on mixing recorded music, within the remit of the new Institute for Creative Industries when it is launched.

Research Goal

The research activity will explore the concept of distributed creativity through a particular focus on Actor-Network Theory, the Social Construction of Technology and the systems approach to creativity. It will include the analysis of detailed case studies of recording sessions.

Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate should have an MA / MSc or equivalent degree in a relevant area of music performance or production. The candidate will combine experience of organising recording sessions (either as a performer or technician) with theoretical knowledge of performance studies and/or the social construction of technology.

The candidate would engage in the analysis of one or more recording sessions in the studios of LCM or elsewhere. This would involve, organising, filming and otherwise fully documenting these recording sessions and undertaking a structured analysis of both the interactions in the sessions themselves and any subsequent interviews and commentaries.

Knowledge / experience of qualitative questionnaire techniques and the statistical analysis of results would be a useful, though not essential skill.


2. The Psychoacoustics of Mixing and Record Production

Research Context

This project reflects the London College of Music's (LCM) international reputation in the emerging research field of record production and the perception of recorded music. LCM combines cutting edge research with enormous experience of professional practice in this area and is also working in conjunction with the School of Computing and Technology on using case-based reasoning in the field of applied audio engineering.

Dr. Simon Zagorski-Thomas and Dr. Andrew Bourbon are developing research in this area which would inform the theoretical framework about the perception and cognition of recorded music used in this PhD project. The outcomes of this project would also provide further theoretical input for the School of Computing and Technology's project on 'Experience-based audio mastering and mixing'. The extensive experience of mixing and recording that other members of the LCM have would also feed into these projects.

This project would sit, along with other research into recorded music, plus two AHRC bids in development and the proposed networking event on mixing recorded music, within the remit of the new Institute for Creative Industries when it is launched.

Research Goal

The research activity will aim to examine the way that specific techniques used in mixing recorded music (dynamic compression, frequency equalisation and filtering and spatial processing) affect its perception and can be used in its production.

Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate should have an MA / MSc or equivalent degree in the psychology of music, music technology or music production. The candidate will combine strong practical skills in mixing recorded music with a theoretical knowledge of music perception and cognition.

The candidate would work in conjunction with a number of staff in the music department whose research and professional practice is in the area of record production and mixing recorded music. The candidate will carry out applied research work that will involve listener and user studies to test hypotheses resulting from the proposed theoretical framework.

Knowledge / experience of qualitative questionnaire techniques and the statistical analysis of results would be a useful, though not essential skill.

Further Information

The Graduate Scholars will register as full-time MPhil/PhD students in one of the above strategic priority areas and will teach up to six hours per week (seminars, tutorials, marking and assisting in monitoring the academic progress of students).

The Scholarship will offer:

    Tax-free stipend of £7000 per annum;

    Support, subject to satisfactory performance and academic progress, for three years.

 For further information about the Graduate Scholarships, please email (copying in indicating the area in which you are interested.  You will then be sent details of the specific projects available including the entry criteria for each project and details of the application process.

 Last date for enquiries: Friday 21 June 2013

 Closing date for applications: Sunday 30 June 2013

CFP - 2nd Int'l Workshop on Musical Metacreation (MUME2013)


((( MUME 2013 )))
2nd International Workshop on Musical Metacreation

Held at the Ninth Annual AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE'13)
Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
October 14-15, 2013


Deadline for Paper and Demo Submissions:
*** July 1, 2013 ***


We are delighted to announce the 2nd International Workshop on Musical Metacreation (MUME2013) to be held October 14 and 15, 2013, in conjunction with the Ninth Annual AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE'13). MUME2013 builds on the enthusiastic response and participation we received for the inaugural workshop in 2012, which received 31 submissions, 17 of which were accepted (a 55% acceptance rate). This year the workshop has expanded to 2 days.

Thanks to continued progress in artistic and scientific research, a new possibility has emerged in our musical relationship with technology: Generative Music or Musical Metacreation, the design and use of computer music systems which are "creative on their own". Metacreation involves using tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and life sciences. Musical Metacreation suggests exciting new opportunities to enter creative music making: discovery and exploration of novel musical styles and content, collaboration between human performers and creative software "partners", and design of systems in gaming and entertainment that dynamically generate or modify music.

MUME brings together artists, practitioners and researchers interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, compose, complete, accompany, or interpret music. As such, we welcome contributions to the theory or practice of generative music systems and their applications in new media, digital art, and entertainment at large. Join us at MUME2013 and take part in this exciting, growing community!


We encourage paper and demo submissions on topics including the following:
    * Novel representations of musical information
    * Systems for autonomous or interactive music composition
    * Systems for automatic generation of expressive musical interpretation
    * Systems for learning or modelling music style and structure
    * Systems for intelligently remixing or recombining musical material
    * Advances or applications of AI, machine learning, and statistical techniques for musical purposes
    * Advances or applications of evolutionary computing or agent and multiagent-based systems for musical purposes
    * Computational models of human musical creativity
    * Techniques and systems for supporting human musical creativity
    * Online musical systems (i.e. systems with a real-time element)
    * Adaptive and generative music in video games
    * Methodologies for, and studies reporting on, evaluation of musical metacreations
    * Emerging musical styles and approaches to music production and performance involving the use of AI systems
    * Applications of musical metacreation for digital entertainment: sound design, soundtracks, interactive art, etc.

Format and Submissions

The workshop will be a two day event including:
    * Presentations of FULL TECHNICAL PAPERS (8 pages maximum)
    * Presentations of POSITION PAPERS and TECHNICAL IN-PROGRESS WORK (5 pages maximum)
    * Presentations of DEMONSTRATIONS (3 pages maximum)
    * One or more PANEL SESSIONS (potential topics include international and networked collaborations, evaluation methodologies, industry engagement, generative music in art vs. games)

Workshop papers will be published in a Technical Report by AAAI Press and will be archived in the AAAI digital library.
Submissions should be made in AAAI, 2-column format; see instructions here:

ISMIR 2013 Call for Participation
14th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference
4th - 8th of November 2013
Curitiba, Brazil (organized by PUCPR)
The annual Conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) is the world's leading research forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data.The revolution in music distribution and storage brought about by digital technology has fueled tremendous research activities and interests in academia as well as in industry. The ISMIR Conference reflects this rapid development by providing a meeting place for the discussion of MIR-related research, developments, methods, tools and experimental results. Its main goal is to foster multidisciplinary exchange by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, as well as students and professional users.
ISMIR 2013 will feature:
*         introductory and in-depth tutorials
*         oral and poster presentations of research papers
*         invited talks reflecting the true interdisciplinary nature of MIR research
*         a late-break/demo session
*         a music programme.

Important Notice:
There will be *no extension* to the paper submission deadline (10th May). However authors of registered papers on 10th May will be allowed to upload new versions of their papers (in pdf format) until 17th May. No other changes will be possible (i.e. authors will *not* be able to change title, abstract, authors, keywords, or other metadata). No submission of new papers will be possible after 10th May.

ISMIR 2013 welcomes paper submissions for oral or poster presentation in the (non-exclusive) areas of:
*       content-based querying and retrieval
*       database systems, indexing and query
*       fingerprinting and digital rights management
*       music transcription and annotation
*       music signal processing
*       sound source separation in music signals
*       score following, audio alignment and music synchronization
*       optical music recognition
*       melody and motives
*       rhythm, beat, tempo and form
*       harmony, chords and tonality
*       timbre, instrumentation and voice
*       performance analysis
*       modification and transformation of music data
*       computational musicology
*       music perception and cognition
*       emotion and aesthetics
*       applications of MIR to the performing arts and multimedia
*       automatic classification

*       evaluation and annotation issues
*       methodological and philosophical issues
*       social, legal, ethical and business issues
*       applications to traditional/folk/ethnic music
To ensure a high quality of the contributions, all papers will go through a double-blind selection process with at least three reviewers per submission. Paper submissions must be no more than 6 pages long when formatted with the conference template, and in PDF. Accepted papers will be designated by the Program Committee to be presented either as posters or as lectures. All accepted papers have the same status, assignment as poster or lecture is not indicative of the relevance or potential impact but on the type of content and way to better reach the intended audience.
As in previous years, ISMIR 2013 will also include a special track for demos and late-breaking news, with a later deadline than the main paper/poster track. Demos consist of live, hands-on presentations of working software which incorporate MIR algorithms or are relevant to MIR research. Late-breaking news is quite the opposite: unpolished, not-quite-understood-yet puzzles and findings that may barely hold together, but are guaranteed to foster debate and discussion. Both are things better interacted with than lectured about. While recent years have seen a majority of submissions in the demo category, we will endeavor to reach a better balance of both types of submissions this year. In particular, we envision to differentiate the presentation format for demos and late-breaking news - the former, in the walk-around exhibition style that has been successful at previous ISMIRs; the latter, in a more participative, un-conference style. Details will be posted at a later date.
Both types of submissions will consist of extended abstracts of 1-2 pages, which will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind manner by members of the programme committee like the submissions for the main paper track. In the case of demo submissions, abstracts should describe what the typical user scenario will be as well as the technical requirements for the presentation. In the case of late-breaking news, abstracts should make the case of why the result is inspirational and topical for the MIR community.

Curitiba is the largest and one of the most important cities of Southern Brazil, being a cultural, political and economic center. Its population is approximately 1,8 million and its metropolitan area comprises 26 municipalities with a total population of over 3,2 million. The city is on a plateau 932 m (3107 ft) above the sea level. People from Curitiba are known as Curitibanos.
One theory about the name "Curitiba" comes from the Tupi words kurí tyba, "much pine," due to the large number of Brazilian Pine Trees? (Araucaria angustifolia), in the region prior to its foundation. Today, Curitiba is considered one of the best examples of urban planning world-wide.
The conference will take place in the Bourbon Curitiba Convention Hotel. The hotel is located in the downtown area with easy access to major sights and it is just 22km from the Afonso Pena airport. It is the most traditional hotel in Curitiba. It has been awarded 14 consecutive times as the Top of Mind and has at its restaurant the Best Feijoada of Curitiba according to some national magazines such as Veja, and Gula.
