Music & Body


Music and the Body
9–11 March 2012
The University of Hong Kong

Deadline for submission of abstract: 1 November 2011

Department of Music and the Centre for the Humanities and Medicine
The University of Hong Kong

What is the relationship between music and the body? Almost everything
concerning music is quintessentially related to the body, yet the answers to
this question are multifaceted. The relationship is multimodal involving the
auditory, kinaesthetic, and visual, and is observed at diverse levels of
experience across sensation, perception, creation/production,
interpretation, and communication. The notion of "body" itself is
multivalent, and thus the connection can be subject to various
interpretations from different perspectives, such as anatomical, medical,
cognitive, aesthetic, cultural, social, and historical. Reckoning the
clashes between these perspectives, this conference proposes to investigate
the multidimensional relationship between music and the body in a setting
that promotes a genuine intellectual exchange of ideas.

The conference is particularly interested in questions and approaches that
cut across traditional disciplines. For example, how the humanistic
interpretation of corporeality could be linked to the scientific studies of
the theme? Conversely, what are the implications of recent medical and
neuroscientific investigations to the historical and cultural
contextualisation of music and the body? How has music been used to control
the body? And in light of the expanded notion of the musical mind and brain,
how is the duality between the body and the mind viewed in today's discourse
on music perception? Other interpretations of the theme are equally welcome.

The conference will feature a keynote address by Sander Gilman (Emory
University/The University of Hong Kong), with invited presentations by Eric
Clarke (University of Oxford), Lawrence Zbikowski (University of Chicago),
and Marina Gilman (Emory Voice Center). Other invited speakers will be
announced in due course.
