A bilingual conference and concert series
co-hosted by McGill University, Université de Montréal, and CIRMMT
Montreal, 16–19 November 2018
The International Conference on Mixed Music Pedagogy 2018 (ICOMMP-2018) will be the first event of its kind: a four-day research-creation conference on the pedagogy of mixed music (music combining acoustic and electronic sound sources). Led by artist-researchers and scholars at McGill University and the Université de Montréal, the conference will include public workshops, research colloquia, and concerts featuring guest artists and lecturers from Canada, the United States, France, and Portugal.
ICOMMP-2018 will feature four days of presentations in French and English by international guests and presenters chosen from an open call for papers. Confirmed speakers include composers (Miguel Azguime, Bertrand Dubedout, Bruno Gabirro, Philippe Leroux, Pierre Michaud, Nina C. Young), musicologists (Guillaume Boutard, Jonathan Goldman, Robert Hasegawa), performers (Guillaume Bourgogne, Jean-Michaël Lavoie, Lorraine Vaillancourt), and technology experts (Mikhail Malt, Gilbert Nouno). Three associated concerts will feature Portugal’s Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble plus student performers from McGill and Université de Montréal, including a rare North American performance of Pierre Boulez’s …explosante-fixe… and new works by Miguel Azguime, Bertrand Dubedout, Pierre-Luc Lecours, Pierre Michaud, and Nina C. Young.
ICOMMP-2018 is made possible by the generous support of the Schulich School of Music of McGill University, CIRMMT (Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and Subito Music Corporation.
