A seminar exploring the relationship between Composer and Musicologist takes place in NUI Maynooth on 3 May

Sonic Symbiosis PosterThe one-day seminar, Sonic Symbiosis, is hosted by the Department of Music, NUI Maynooth in association with the Society for Musicology in Ireland. The seminar organisers write about the day:

Sonic Symbiosis: the relationship between Composer and Musicologist reflects on the role of both parties in the other’s musical life, examining this amalgam from both perspectives and explicitly contextualising it within the wider milieu of contemporary culture. It aims to examine the need for both additional intellectual discourse and firm creative practice in order to establish a professional relationship which acknowledges the goal of obtaining a shared understanding of the creative object by all external parties (performer, listener, visual artist, student, scholar, etc.). Participants will contemplate not only the potential benefits of this amalgam, but also the possible pitfalls.

The day will include dual-presentation sessions by leading Irish musicologists and composers, including Irish composers Seóirse Bodley, Gráinne Mulvey, John Buckley, Benjamin Dywer Garrett Sholdice, and Martin O’Leary.

The seminar takes place in the Bewerunge Room, Department of Music, NUI Maynooth Friday 3 May, 2013. Further information is available from the NUIM Music Department web site or by contacting the organiser Dr. Barbara Dignam, Barbara.Dignam@nuim.ie.
