Music Performance Studies Today: “The Ephemerality of Musical Hearing”

Music Performance Studies Today
lectures-symposia
Zoom

Given the ephemerality of performance, what are key issues behind the transmission of musical remembrance? How can we narrow the divide between what Diana Taylor calls the “archive” of enduring materials, such as texts, documents, and buildings, and the “more ephemeral ‘repertoire’ of embodied practice/knowledge,” such as “spoken language, dance, sports, ritual” and, we add, music performance?

Panelists
  • Nina Eidsheim (UCLA)
  • Ryan Shiotsuki (Chapman University, Cal Poly Pomona)
  • Andrea Moore (Smith College)
  • Elisabeth Le Guin (UCLA)
Co-Respondents
  • Pheaross Graham (UCLA) and Farrah O'Shea (UCLA)

This is the third event in the Music Performance Studies Today series. Considering musics from a variety of traditions, this symposium aims to bring visibility to the field of music performance studies and generate scholarly momentum in its realm at UCLA.
