This week: MTI² hosts EMS21 conference!

This week MTI² is very proud to be hosting the 2021 EMS conference!

Music, Technology and Innovation – Institute for Sonic Creativity (MTI2)

De Montfort University, Leicester UK
Wed. 10 – Sat. 13 November 2021

EMS21 Conference Theme: Future Directions of Electroacoustic Music Studies

Celebrating 20 years of Music, Technology & Innovation at De Montfort University, and 25 years of the ‘Organised Sound’ journal, 2021 is an opportune moment to investigate the state of our field and, perhaps more importantly, look to the future. As sonic creativity continues to develop rapidly, its field of study is arguably still in search of itself. Are we suffering from the old adage that music cannot be studied until it has existed for a long time? Or perhaps from our field being too interdisciplinary in nature?

EMS21 seeks to present, alongside up-to-date research results, a number of papers investigating how today’s and tomorrow’s specialists expect this important field to evolve. Will it settle in as a contemporary sub-area of musicology? Or will it find its own foci of scholarly endeavour thanks to the fact that it incorporates all sounds as well as many forms of technology?

Keynote Speakers:
Georgina Born (Oxford University)
Simon Emmerson (De Montfort University)
