CONGRESSO DE ORGANOLOGIA
PORTO - PORTUGAL
6º Encontro Científico Internacional para Estudos sobre Som e Instrumentos Musicais
6th International Scientific Meeting for Sound and Musical Instrument Studies
In this special conference we welcome participation from all areas, proposing to communicate your work on scientific and cultural heritage which is thought to be relevant to sound and musical instrument research and creative output, comprising innovative technology and issues regarding sustainability (matters on preservation of rare species and forest genetic resources are among these). We strongly invite all those who care and are willing to step forward with solutions and propositions concerning the four main topics, to be discussed and summoned during the conference days.
ANIMUSIC's Organological Congresses have a limited number of accepted proposals in order to stimulate close contacts between the community and personal involvement in the supported activities, intermingling participants from all over the world. We avoid parallel sessions and promote interdisciplinary exchange, fomenting panels and open discussions. Furthermore, we propose visits to places of cultural importance which are different every year. The Organizing and Scientific Committees have included, for the program of 2017, special recitals and concerts with traditional historic and innovative instruments, namely visiting some of the over 50 historical organs of Porto, composer’s Dr Graham Hair and Scottish Voices superlative music, Ancient Music Ireland presenting the new replicas of the Irish/British Iron Age trumpets (trumpa mór) and a pair of traditional Nepalese narsingra in comparison, ‘Body Music: Japanese Bunraku revisited’ from the project KikiT VisuoSonic presented by Professor Maurice Owen and Dr Russell Richards from Southampton Solent University; exhibition/ENCONTROIM (encounter for makers and collectors of musical instruments); a Skype-presentation from one of the founders of sustainability in music, directly from the USA, Professor Jeff Titon; discussion, panels, workshops and a pioneer Maker's LABs where makers have the chance to explain in detail their original inventions and projects, showing the participants the actual practice; and also the presentation of the newest project in education which is being developed by ANIMUSIC.
