The Music Ecosystems Conference will be held on 24-25 April 2020 (F-Sa) at Auckland, New Zealand, as part of the ISCM 2020 World New Music Days.

The organisers invite proposals for papers/presentations that reflect on our changing music ecosystems, and may coincide with one or more of the following themes:

  • musical villages
  • music and the environment
  • the musical globe
  • sustainability
  • dislocated musics
  • internationalism and music
  • musical (r)evolutions

Papers on topics outside these areas, but falling within the scope of the general theme, are also invited.

Deadline: Proposals should be submitted via the festival website (link below) by 7 Feb 2020 (F).

All abstracts will be peer reviewed by two members of an assessment panel convened by ISCM President, Assoc Prof Glenda Keam. Submitters will be advised whether their proposal has been accepted by 28 Feb 2020 (F). Note that both formal and informal presentation styles are welcome. Presentations will be limited to 20 min, with a further 10-min discussion.

Please note: Select conference papers/presentations will be invited for publication in the new online platform Naxos Musicology International (accessible via the Naxos Music Library). Contributions may of course be edited and revised by authors for the purposes of publication.
