This international conference addresses the performance of indeterminate and experimental musics as its central theme, and is intended as a forum for the exchange of perspectives from musicologists (in the broadest sense), performers, composers, and a wider audience. Including a performance of John Cage's Concert for Piano and Orchestra (1957-58) and the world premiere of Resistance by Christian Wolff performed by Apartment House, the conference comprises installations, papers, practice-based contributions, and musical performances.
If you have any questions or difficulty with the registration process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference is part of the research programme of the AHRC-funded project, 'John Cage and the Concert for Piano and Orchestra' and is organised by Prof. Philip Thomas and Dr Chris Melen (University of Huddersfield), Prof. Martin Iddon and Dr Emily Payne (University of Leeds).
