Call for Proposals until 05_01_23: European Platform for Artistic Research in Music
The ninth EPARM (European Platform for Artistic Research in Music) conference The Artistry of Artistic Research, taking place from 7-9 April at the Royal Academy of Music in London, welcomes music researchers, educators, performers and composers to a three-day exploration of artistic research in music at the Royal Academy of Music in London, UK. You can submit your proposal for either a presentation or performance until the 5th of January 2023.
The European Platform for Artistic Research in Music (EPARM) is an initiative of the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC), acting as a resource for artistic research in the specific context of Higher Music Education: sharing knowledge, insights and outputs; promoting and developing the discourse around artistic research; incubating new ideas and developments; and offering support and inspiration to AEC members.
The ninth EPARM conference welcomes music researchers, educators, performers and composers to a three-day exploration of artistic research in music at the Royal Academy of Music in London, UK.
EPARM recognises that there is no one way to pursue artistic research in music. Nonetheless, at the core of all such research is the artistic practice itself, which functions not only as an object of study, but as a source of significant questions and a means of pursuing original insights. It is an expectation that presentations at EPARM will include performance or the presentation of original work.
The ninth EPARM conference will take the title The Artistry of Artistic Research and, while presentations relating to any aspect of artistic research in music are invited, the peer review panel will particularly welcome presentations that consider:
- the special insights that flow from practice;
- relationships between craft and investigation;
- exploratory engagements with repertoire and instruments;
- and the impact of artistic practice.
To reflect the centrality of performance in artistic research, the EPARM conference will include a special evening programme of performance and discussion. Proposals are welcomed for short performances of a maximum of 30 minutes, which are themselves the outcomes of artistic research. Nine such performances will be selected for an evening programme called L8nite Performances, with performers contributing to a moderated audience discussion following immediately after the performances. Proposal for the L8nite Performances should follow the specific requirements below.
To support the development of excellent artistic research at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels, doctoral students and early career researchers may opt to participate in a facilitated session with a dedicated respondent offering feedback on the presentation and actively leading the discussion. Participants opting for these sessions will need to submit the text of their presentations, together with any relevant audio or video materials, by 5th January 2022.
For the submission it is compulsory to use the template provided via this link. You can also find there the different proposals you can submit, for a presentation or a performance.
