MP 2014: Final Keynote Speaker: Dr Jane Alden and performers Vocal Constructivists

All proposals are in, and the reading panel is currently looking at the abstracts but we still have further announcements to make!

Our final keynote speaker will be Dr Jane Alden of Wesleyan University. Dr Jane Alden has reserach interests that span from mediaeval music to graphic notation, and she is the director of the group Vocal Constructivists who have performed works by composers including Mark Applebaum, Michael Parsons, Paula Matthusen, Pauline Oliveros, Christian Wolff, Lauren Redhead, and have given the first all voices performance of the entire manuscript of Treatise by Cornelius Cardew.

In addition to Dr Alden’s keynote talk, members of Vocal Constructivists will perform some highlights from their repertoire in a special second keynote concert.


Full details of the programme including the keynote speakers and concerts will be announced shortly, along with details of how to register for the conference.
