================================================================== Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message. ================================================================== 2nd CALL FOR ABSTRACTS : NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE : February 17th, 2008 Prosody and expressivity in speech and music Satellite Event around Speech Prosody 2008 / First EMUS Conference - Expressivity in MUsic and Speech http://www.sp2008.org/events.php / http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/analyse-synthese/EMUS Campinas, Brazil, May 5th, 2008 [Abstract submission deadline: February 17th, 2008] Keywords: emotion, expressivity, prosody, music, acquisition, perception, production, interpretation, cognitive sciences, neurosciences, acoustic analysis. DESCRIPTION: Speech and music conceal a treasure of “expressive potential” for they can activate sequences of varied emotional experiences in the listener. Beyond their semiotic differences, speech and music share acoustic features such as duration, intensity, and pitch, and have their own internal organization, with their own rhythms, colors, timbres and tones. The aim of this workshop is to question the connections between various forms of expressivity, and the prosodic and gestural dimensions in the spheres of music and speech. We will first tackle the links between speech and music through enaction and embodied cognition. We will then work on computer modelling for speech and music synthesis. The third part will focus on musicological and aesthetic perspectives. We will end the workshop with a round table in order to create a dialogue between the various angles used to apprehend prosody and expressivity in both speech and music. FRAMEWORK: This workshop will be the starting point of a string of events on the relations between language and music: 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 25th and 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. SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: The workshop will host about ten posters. Authors should submit an extended abstract to: beller@xxxxxxxx in pdf format by January 30, 2008. We will send an email confirming the reception of the submission. The suggested abstract length is maximum 1 page, formatted in standard style. The authors of the accepted abstracts will be allocated as poster highlights. Time will be allocated in the programme for poster presentations and discussions. Before the workshop, the extended abstracts (maximum 4 pages) will be made available to a broader audience on the workshop web site. We also plan to maintain the web page after the workshop and encourage the authors to submit slides and posters with relevant links to their personal web pages.
