Reflections on music programming for conferences: The case of smc 2009

Carlos Guedes, Pedro Rebelo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The inclusion of the presentation of music in a conference dealing with technical or cultural aspects of that same music has evolved significantly. An important aspect of music presentation is the opportunity it provides for public engagement. Conferences that have a music program often follow two different approaches, or a combination of these that includes the creation of a music committee inways similar to a scientific committee, or the invitation of curators to select the program for one or more concerts in the conference. Models of new music creation have significantly expanded to include close composer-performer collaboration which in some cases results in coauthorship. The conference-plus-festival format needs to be able to expand and refine the process of submitting a work for public presentation in order to adequately exhibit the variety of approaches to music production and dissemination.
