Air Composes Music For 'A Trip To The Moon'
The French duo Air has written music for films before — its compositions appear in Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation, The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette — but never before had it composed music for anything as classic and internationally treasured as French filmmaker Georges Méliès' groundbreaking 1902 film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon).

Psychoacoustic Foundations of Contextual Harmonic Stability in Jazz Piano Voicings
The Miles Davis Nonet Manuscripts Lost and Found: From Manuscript to Publication
Computer Music Journal
Volume 35, Number 3, Fall 2011
This issue’s theme is “Emulative Algorithms and Creative Algorithms.” All but one of the issue’s articles discuss algorithms that either simulate traditional, non-computer-based musical techniques or else explore original, creative approaches. In these pages, the dichotomy of imitative versus original creation, of standard versus nonstandard musical practice, shows up in three areas: sound synthesis, musical composition, and musical performance. For each of these areas, they present an emulative approach first, followed by a non-emulative one.more

Call For Papers
"Sowjetische Musik und Musiker im Ausland, 1917-1991"
Zu diesem Thema findet ein internationales Symposium vom 24. bis 26. Mai 2013 in der Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover in Kooperation mit der IMS Study Group "Shostakovich and His Epoch" statt.

Xenakis' Electroacoustic Music
Université Paris 8, May 23-25, 2012
Xenakis' electroacoustic works are relatively few in his whole production, but they are very important. Indeed, most of them punctuate the history of electroacoustic music as masterpieces full of originality and innovation. Besides, Xenakis worked both on musique concrète and with electronic music techniques, covering both fields of what is called electroacoustic music. Moreover, his polytopes, where technology plays a major role, are pioneer realizations in the history of multimedia art.
This symposium wishes to gather researchers from all around the world – well-known specialists of Xenakis' music or young researchers – to analyze his electroacoustic music. Proposals of papers should include an abstract of 600 to 1000 words (additional to a bibliography) and a short CV. They should be sent before the 1th of January 2012 to Makis.Solomos at univ-paris8.fr .
Conlon Nancarrow: Life and Music
International Symposium Online, September 27 - October 27 2012
The Symposium, held in honor of the centennial of Nancarrow's birth, will include three main types of material: academic papers, performances and media, and biographical material such as interviews, reviews, and photographs. Keynote presentations feature Kyle Gann, author of The Music of Conlon Nancarrow, and the Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo.
The Symposium will be an online gathering, harnessing network resources to bring Nancarrow enthusiasts from a wide range of geographical areas and time zones into communication with one another. We hope that the three types of materials listed above will stimulate a vibrant online exchange.
Material from the Symposium will remain online for research and public information purposes, and may be submitted as part of a special issue to Music Theory Online. Some of the possible technologies of the MTO site include sound files, color graphics, animation, video, non-linear presentations, interactive elements, and the use of live hyperlinks to reference online sources.
Important Dates Submission of proposals: January 15, 2012 Notification: March 15, 2012 Final versions: August 1, 2012 Symposium Dates: September 27 - October 27, 2012 Info
Pierre Boulez – avant-garde figurehead since the 1940s, musical giant on the world stage and author of some of the key progressive works in musical modernism – is celebrated over one weekend.
As well as hearing the composer himself conducting a special performance of his masterpiece Pli selon pli, with the esteemed Ensemble InterContemporain – which he founded in the 1970s – there is an opportunity to hear almost all his piano works played during one day by Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich. Hear pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, composer Nico Muhly and Gillian Moore, Southbank Centre's Head of Contemporary Culture, discuss Exquisite Labyrinth in following podcast .
Though 27 year-old Marissa Nadler has a background in visual arts at the Rhode Island School of Design, she has since made a career as a musician. It's not surprising to find Nadler crafts music with melodies and lyrics steeped in rich imagery and beautiful textures. With a sound somewhere between the hazy melodies of Mazzy Star and the folk sensibilities of Vashti Bunyan, Nadler pieces together beautiful, dreamy folk music.
Nadler's music may contain less 'freak' folk or experimental elements than much of the music evolving from the folk scene today, but it is no less relevant or intriguing. Ranging from ghosts, angels, and dead flowers to running away to join the circus, the topics on 'Little Hells' are just as eerily beautiful as the music.Website
THE ARTWORK OF EMORY DOUGLAS at The Outsiders - London
Emory Douglas is a pivotal figure in the development of political graphic art. Appointed ‘Minister for Culture’ for the Black Panthers in 1967, he became in-house illustrator for the quasi-revolutionary civil rights movement’s eponymous newspaper. Douglas’ instantly recognisable graphics filled the incendiary journal and would form its back page, a ‘cut out and paste up’ propaganda poster.
A cornerstone of the Black Panthers until their dissolution in the early 1980s, Douglas was one of the first agitants to use the visual language of the right wing to express the ideas of the left. His powerful pieces swapped hand-wringing for aggression and victim status for insurgency. Using a strong but consistent, simple yet brutal visual style Douglas’ artwork defined the Black Panther’s pride, resourcefulness and charisma. The illustrations’ accompanying battle cries, including ‘all power to the people’, ‘in revolution one wins and one dies’ and ‘seize the times’, entered the lexicon of a generation.
