The capacity to be in time together lies at the heart of all music-making and is one of the most profound of human capabilities; being in time together is implicated in social bonding, altered states, and foundational pleasures associated with music. The ways in which we play in time together, also mark out difference - between genres and between instruments (and instrumentalists), between studio and live performance, between the virtuoso and the beginner.

In this conference, we address the complexity of making time from a range of perspectives and in so doing, will bring into dialogue, social, cultural, psychological, aesthetic, critical and educational understandings of musical time and timing.

We look forward to scholars joining us from different disciplines and whose interests span very different forms of music-making.

If you have any questions or difficulty with the registration process, please email makingtime@music.ox.ac.uk.

The conference committee is: Dr Mark Doffman, Dr Jonna Vuoskoski, and Dr Toby Young (all University of Oxford) and Dr Emily Payne (University of Leeds).
