A Study Day co-hosted by IASPM Norden & Nordic Sounds
All are invited to the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM Norden) Study Day at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo on September 14 2017.
The theme of the day is the study of popular music in the Nordic countries. Professor Stan Hawkins will introduce the event, which is co- hosted by our department’s Nordic Sounds: Critical Music Research Group.
The next Nordic Sounds meeting will be an informal workshop where research group participants can come together to discuss critical themes and issues related to ongoing research on music in the Nordic countries.
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled. We will meet again in September.
Constitutionally protected freedom of expression and the development of a free and open public sphere during the 19th century are important historical preconditions for the open Nordic societies of today, consistently ranked at the top of the World Press Freedom Index.
The project aims to explore the gradual, uneven development within these fields in the Nordic region, through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.
Today, digitally informed music has reached a point where it has become feasible to detect emotion content in the musical audio stream (sound). When this is applied in real-time to aspects of its response, a new context for the creation, performance and listening to music has been established where man and machine can interact in much more meaningful ways than previously. This will provide for new and more engaged expressions, giving new horizons for musical artwork. The purpose of the SUM project is to develop tools by building on existing work by internationally outstanding scholars in the Nordic countries in digital signal processing, music cognition, emotion expression, and interaction software development.
The Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics (NNIMIPA) was organized in 2007 with funding from NordPlus and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). NNIMAPA aims at shedding new light upon these questions by viewing music in terms of information and communication, aided by the tools under rapid development within information technology, practice-based research and the newperspectives arising within aesthetics as a result of new technologies for studying and producing music.
