Reminder - Deadline for submissions December 31 1998: CMI-99 Conference on Musical Imagery The International Society for Systematic and Comparative Musicology will arrange its sixth international conference at the University of Oslo, Section for Musicology, June 17 - 20, 1999, with musical imagery as its theme. Musical imagery can be defined as our capacity for imagining musical sound in the absence of a directly audible sound source, meaning that we can recall and re-experience or even invent new musical sound through our "inner ear". We would like to see a broad scope of approaches to this theme, as may be suggested by the following sub-topics: - Elements of auditory imagery in music (pitch, melody, harmony, timbre, dynamics, rhythm, textures, etc.) - Auditory imagery in language and other sonic events - The epistemology of musical imagery - Musical imagery and event imagery - Cross-modality and musical imagery - Performance and musical imagery - Mental practice and musical imagery - Oral traditions and musical imagery - Theories of consciousness and musical imagery - Neurological aspects of musical imagery - Schema theory and musical imagery - Musical analysis and musical imagery - Musical imagery and representations of musical sound in mind and machine - Musical imagery and conceptual spaces - Guided visual imagery Researchers are invited to submit extended abstracts (min. 400, max. 800 words) by no later than December 31, 1998. Submissions by e-mail are encouraged, but submissions may be made either by paper copy or by e-mail to the following address: CMI-99 Section for Musicology University of Oslo P.
