Mapping spaces, sounding places: Geographies of sound in audiovisual media

XIV. Symposium zur Filmmusikforschung

Kieler Gesellschaft für Filmmusikforschung

in collaboration with Università di Pavia - Dipartimento di Musicologia e Beni Culturali (Cremona)


Cremona, 19-22 March 2019


Sound design, film music and music editing in general exert a primary function in conveying senses of space and place in audiovisual media. Strategies for connoting space and place in film sound and music vary with cinematic practices across history and according to transnational patterns of negotiation between global and local modes of production. At the same time audiovisual communication, when rich in local connotations, allows insights into specific socio-historical contexts and the documentation of human geographies. This conference aims to bring together scholars interested in mapping geographies of music and sound practices in audiovisual media (e.g. film, television, video games, interactive art). We invite fresh perspectives on film music and sound that are willing to embrace aspects ranging from individual approaches to space and place to collective geographies, also considering industrial trends and intermedia connections. Cultural, ethnographic, historical, analytical, data-driven and aesthetic approaches are welcome, as well as research on industrial and commercial practices.

Invited speakers:

The conference will also be comprised of a roundtable aiming at gathering artistic and practice-based research projects. The roundtable will be curated by Miriam De Rosa (Senior Lecturer, School of Media and Performing Arts, Coventry University, UK) and will tackle topics such as sound art and placemaking, mapping and navigating space through sound/aural artistic practice, audiovisual media and acousmatic music, VR, AR, interactive screen and sound media.

We encourage papers addressing research questions that may include:

We invite proposals for individual papers, pre-constituted panels and poster presentations. Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words (plus a 200 words presentation for panel proposals) and a short biography (max. 250 words) to geographiesofsound2019@gmail.com
