================================================================== Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message. ================================================================== Third EMUS Conference: Expressivity in MUsic and Speech http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/analyse-synthese/EMUS Conference on Expressivity in Speech and Music IRCAM, Paris, France, June 17th-18th, 2008, during AGORA music festival http://agora2008.ircam.fr/767.html?cycle=129&L=1 KEYWORDS: emotion, expressivity, prosody, music, acquisition, perception, production, interpretation, performance, cognitive sciences, neurosciences, acoustic analysis, linguistics, phonetics. DESCRIPTION: The analysis of expressivity in speech and musical performance has created two emerging multidisciplinary scientific research fields. The parallelism between different studies on the role of prosody (verbal and/or instrumental) in expressivity has caused new questions that touch both domains to surface. This symposium brings together experts from both the artistic and the scientific worlds and focuses on two major issues. Firstly, how is the expressivity that is found in both speech and music to be defined (what semantic field, what category)? Secondly, what acoustic elements common to both speech and music are necessary for the description of these expressivities? Composers, scientists, performers, and musicologists will all contribute to the debate. The two days of discussion being held at IRCAM are a part of the Expressivity in MUsic and Speech series (EMUS) being held in Lyon, Paris, and Campinas (Brazil). FRAMEWORK: This workshop will be the third event of a string dedicated to the relations between language and music: • May 5th: Prosody and Expressivity in Speech and Music (Speech Prosody 2008, Campinas, Brazil) • May 16th: Prosody, Babbling and Music (Ecole Normale Supérieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines, Lyon) • June 17-18th: Prosody of Expressivity in Music and Speech (IRCAM, Paris) • September 25-26th: Semiotics and microgenesis of verbal and musical forms (RISC, Paris). Our aim is to make links between several fields of research and create a community interested in the relations between music and language. The project will be materialized in a final publication of the keynote papers of those four events. This colloquium takes place during the June 2008 Agora Festival. As a counterpoint to this scientific colloquium, IRCAM is organizing - in collaboration with the Conservatoire des Arts et Metiers (CNAM) - an evening event aimed towards a wider public. This event’s goal is to give an accessible overview of current musical and scientific research in the area of expressivity.
