CALL FOR PAPERS: ends 20th October. | The wide capacity for inventing sound tools and music has been a constant human evolution factor, from regional environments to the application of leading-edge technology. Modernity does not imply a merging homogeneous reality, nor entails a comprehensive Western permeation. Musical instruments reflect individuals and their societies, traditions and quests for novelty, as well as links and differences between cultures. We believe this meeting to be a good opportunity for bringing to light different spectra on the importance of musical instruments, sound and music making in human history, making a special bridge between Science and Art. Following the natural crossroads in Organology, this year’s main theme is «Creativity in musical instruments, sound and music making». The theme is the ‘leitmotif’ of the conference and it is not exclusive; participants are welcome to explore the interdisciplinary essence of Organology and sound studies, on all topics and techniques relevant to our field, namely Acoustics.
