The biennial Baltic musicological conference
MUSIC AND VISUAL CULTURE: SCORE, STAGE & SCREEN
October 6–8, 2022, Vilnius, LITHUANIA
The theme of the conference – “Music and Visual Culture: Score, Stage & Screen” – is aimed to advance interdisciplinary investigations in and between music and visual arts. We intend to tackle both new and longstanding debates around these topics and to encompass a wide range of subjects relating to how the intersections between music and visual arts are evoked and reimagined in score, on stage and screen. We are interested in contributions that approach the issues from diverse perspectives by exploring the historical and theoretical connections between these areas. The program committee encourages submissions within the following areas, although other topics are welcome:
- Music in the Expanded Field: New Approaches to Interdisciplinarity
- Visualizing Music and Identity on Stage and Screen
- Scoring Music: From Augenmusik to Musical Graphics
- Iconography of Musical Instruments in Sociocultural Context
- Sound & Sight of Place and Space
- Music, Visual Culture and Gender Constructions
- Seeing Unseeable: Cross-disciplinary Perspectives
- Music Performance in Traditional and New Media
- Composing and Listening to Audio/visual
Hybrid conference. The conference language is English.
