Call for papers, compositions, and round table discussions
 
The conference theme is 'Sound, Music and the Moving Image', and we intend this in the broadest possible sense. Bringing together practitioners and scholars from various disciplines, the conference will provide the opportunity to reflect on and challenge prevailing approaches to the sound/music and moving image relationship, and also to propose new directions in this dynamic field.  We hope that submissions will reflect work being carried out in the widest variety of musical traditions, cultural contexts, and methodological approaches.
 
The conference will take place between Monday 10th and Wednesday 12th September 2007 at Senate House, London, United Kingdom.
 
Keynote addresses will be provided by Professor Anahid Kassabian (University of Liverpool) and Professor Richard Dyer (Kings College, London).
