The theme for this joint conference of the Musicological Society of Australia (MSA) and the International Conference on Music and Emotion (ICME) is the Power of Music - a broad theme which encompasses the many ways in which music is and has been powerful in human societies.
How musicologists respond to the notion that music has power will be explored in the broadest terms through performance-based, analytical, historical, cultural, social, behavioural and scientific perspectives.
The emotional power of music will be examined by analysing the ways in which emotion is encoded and mediated through musical sounds and structures, and through exploration of how musical emotion is conceptualised, modelled and measured.
Papers and presentations are invited from scholars and students representing a diverse range of disciplines, including:
