[ecrea] CFP | 2015 Art of Record Production Conference
Thu Apr 02 01:49:33 GMT 2015
CFP 2015 ARP Conference
The 10th Art of Record Production Conference:
November 6-8, 2015
Philadelphia, PA, USA
Our conference committee is pleased to invite proposals
for papers dealing with the following broad thematic areas:
A Agency: Content Creators in Record Production
This stream aims to explore the creative agency within record
production. Who or what is in charge (officially or tacitly)? Is sound
recording inherently collaborative? What are the correlations or
disunions associated with the creative process? Who are the future
agents in record production? What agency does/will the consumer hold?
What is DIY in sound production and how has it changed over time? How
does DIY and technology intersect? How will iOS music makers alter the
future of music production? How does media representation influence
record production and vise versa?
B. Multi-Polarities: Contextualizing the Art of Record Production
How does the study of record production and recorded music sit in the
wider context of academic study? This stream seeks contributions from
scholars utilizing some broader perspective. How do researchers in music
studies, ethnomusicology, performance studies, communication and media
studies, cultural studies, historical musicology, the history of
technology, ergonomics, acoustics and psychoacoustics, music theory,
music cognition, music technology, and the philosophies of mediation and
rationalization approach this subject? Can work from areas such as film
studies, the digital humanities, literary theory, and the visual and
plastic arts shed light on our subject area?
C. Education: Connecting Research to Practical Education
With music technology replacing musical instrument proficiency and the
continued blurred lines between artist/producer/engineer, how do
educators of record production tie the theoretical explorations of our
research with the often sought practical skills knowledge of industry
preparation? Are these two separate agendas? What would it mean to
educate students through a socio-technical curriculum? What trusted
methods of education should be continued/abandoned? Should music
proficiency be a priority, or is that an old model? How do we educate
D. Ten Years On: The Art of Record Production
This 10^th Art of Record Production Conference allows for both the
reflection of the discipline and the projection of the discipline’s
future. This stream asks the simple questions, “What do we research, how
do we research, and where will the study of record production be at the
15^th Conference?” Additionally, what is the future of music
production, consumption, fan engagement, music distribution,
music careers, and recording studios, and what methodologies will we use
to explore these questions? How does the history of record production
bridge to the present and future?
In addition to the above themes and topics, we also welcome proposals
for presentations and posters exploring aspects of music production,
performances and practical demonstrations on other topics related to the
Art of Record Production.
Please include a note on methodology where appropriate, and an
indication of the theme (A, B, C or D) your work is intending
to address. In addition to this we would also like a short indication of
your institutional affiliation.
Papers or demonstrations that require recording / studio / 5.1 playback
facilities are also encouraged but selection will be subject to a
feasibility study by the conference committee at Drexel University.
Proposals for individual papers and poster presentations should be in
abstract form and not exceed 300 words.
