TENOR 2019 Conference – Monash University

This five-day conference, in partnership with the Australasian Computer Music Conference, is dedicated to issues in theoretical and applied research and development in music notation and representation, with a particular focus on computer tools and applications, as well as a connection to music creation. ‘Technology’ in the conference title refers to any means that may contribute to the notation, representation and/or visualisation of music and sound, for purposes that may include (but not limited to) music composition, performance, representation, transcription, analysis and pedagogy.
The fifth TENOR conference will continue to offer a lively forum for current research into technologies for notation, representation and/or visualisation of the music and sound, for purposes that may include music composition, performance, representation, transcription, analysis and pedagogy. We also intend to expand the scope of the conference by calling for papers with a focus on how notation enables performance and the performer’s
relationship to the score. The conference will feature leading Australian ensembles with an international reputation: including ELISION, Speak Percussion, Decibel, Clocked Out and the Monash student/staff laptop ensemble, MEME. Workshops will be featured, including a Performance Lab for independent musicians wishing to expand their capability with new types of notations. Students are encouraged to apply, and are peppered throughout the sessions, rather than a separate stream. The wonderful facilities at Monash, including a new Meyer Constellation system and cabaret style jazz club will form part of the landscape for events, in addition to the facilities at the school. First nations people can attend for free.
