[TENOR] TENOR 2018 – Fourth International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation. Montréal – May 22-27, 2018.

The first three TENOR conferences (2015 Paris, 2016 Cambridge, 2017 A Coruña) have established the growing relevance of emergent technologies of notation and representation for a wide range of musical practices: composers, performers, theoreticians, performance researchers, historians, ethnomusicologists, archivists etc. The fourth TENOR conference in Montréal will continue to offer a lively forum for current research into situative scores, softwares, hardware, performance practices and theories of notation and representation in musicking, but we also intend to expand the scope of the conference by calling for papers on:

  • critical, aesthetic and sociological examinations of the interactions between new notation technologies and performance
  • notation technologies for non-eurological and/or non-art music (incl. never-before-notated music)
  • notation/representation technologies for time-based arts beyond music (dance, performance art, theatre, circus arts, animation, film etc.)
  • notations for space, gesture, movement etc.
  • non-visual notation systems (tactile, aural, olfactory, etc.)
  • digital games as notation (music as a game)
  • notation and neurocognition (how does notation work? which interactions/relationships can exist between specific notation technologies and neurocognition).

In addition to papers, TENOR 2018 also calls for musical works using animated, reactive, interactive or other situative and technology-based scores, to be read or workshopped during the conference. Several Montréal ensembles and soloists have expressed their interest in reading and workshopping such scores during the conference. In addition, TENOR 2018 will comprise a performers’ workshop from May 22-26 where participants will study and learn selected situative scores and perform them at an outcome concert.
