[Oxford University] Appel à communications (en anglais) pour la conférence Spectralisms

The first UK conference devoted entirely to the discussion of spectral music will take place in Oxford in March 2017, organised by the Faculty of Music in association with Ircam, Paris.

This conference aims to examine a broad gamut of critical issues springing from the idea of spectral music. The title ‘Spectralisms’ (in the plural) reflects the conference organisers’ wish to encourage contributions from the widest possible range of critical perspectives.

The conference keynote speaker is Tristan Murail, co-founder of Ensemble L’Itinéraire in 1973 and of the spectral movement. His key works include Mémoire/Érosion, Gondawa, Désintégrations, L’Esprit des dunes, La Barque mystique, Winter Fragments and Le Désenchantement du monde. Formerly professor at Columbia University, currently visiting professor at Shanghai Conservatory, he remains one of the world’s most influential living composers.

The conference also features a concert given by the London Sinfonietta of music by Murail, Grisey, Saariaho and others. It will take place in the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building on 15 March 2017 at 19.30. The music in the programme will be introduced by Tristan Murail.
