Call for Papers: International Online Conference on Renewable Music

Deadline: 31 January 2024 00:00

The Polish Composers' Union invites composers, musicians, musicologists, music theorists, representatives of musical organisations and institutions, environmentalists, ecologists and other experts interested in the subject to participate in an online international scientific conference devoted to the idea of renewability in music. The abstract submission deadline is 31 January 2024.

The term ‘renewable music’ was coined in reference to ‘renewable resources’, aiming at focusing attention on the global sustainability crisis in the contemporary music community. This conference intends to open an international dialog on music’s renewability on the level of production, performance and consumption as well as delve deeper in the search for different meanings of this multidimensional metaphor. Full thematic scope of the conference is available HERE.

Please submit abstracts (no longer than 250 words) of your proposed contribution, together with a short biographical note via the Submission Form. The total duration of your presentation should not exceed 30 minutes (about 20 minutes for your talk and about 10 minutes for Q&A).

The conference will be held fully online on 15-17 October 2024. No fees will be charged for registration. The conference language is English. The proceedings will be published in open access.
