Signalling Sound

7 March 2009
University of Warwick

Convenor: Ingrid J. Sykes (Warwick)

This symposium will draw together for the first time leading international researchers from a variety of different backgrounds currently working in the areas of hearing science and musicology to explore the relationship between neurological aspects of auditory perception and historical music creativity. The purpose is to discuss how new developments in the aural cognitive sciences will lead to deeper understanding of past and present technical and aesthetic practices of music listening and production, and the way in which music history (aesthetics and theory) mirrors current thinking in the acoustical cognitive sciences.

Speakers included:
Daniel Pressnitzer (Keynote), Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France
Professor Katherine Bergeron, Brown University, USA
Professor Brian Hyer, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
Professor Reinhart Meyer-Kalkus, WIKO, Universität Potsdam, Germany
Professor Joseph Butch Rovan, Brown University, USA
