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 (see details below). Confirmed speakers include composers (Miguel Azguime, Bertrand Dubedout, 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). Four 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. 

Call for Papers


  • Proposals in French or English are invited for talks on all aspects of mixed music pedagogy, from the perspective of the composer, performer, technician/RIM, or musicologist.
  • Each presenter will be allotted a total of 20 minutes for their talk, to be followed by a 10-minute Q&A period.
