Very excited to be sharing my research, “Dissensus, Refusal and Participatory Music: Negation and Rupture in Crowd in C,” at CIM’22. The conference’s theme this year is “participation” (very apt for my work!). I’ll be presenting on panel 5A, on Thursday, June 9th. You can find out more information at the conference website here:
I’ll be presenting research on participation, political theory, and music technology that I have been working on for the past several years at both the Music and Democracy Study Days: Rethinking Participatory Processes Through Music, and the British Forum for Ethnomusicology and Royal Musical Association Research Students’ Conference in January. The title of the paper is “Dissensus, Refusal and Participatory Music: Negation and Rupture in Crowd in C,” which I have been developing for an invited chapter in a volume on post-politics and the aesthetic imagination. I am really excited for some fruitful talks that develop my thinking on topics that my music is explicitly engaging with.

Melody Chua, Eric Larrieux, Sascha Jösler and I will join forces for an evening of continuous, experimental music at Kunstraum Walcheturm. The set will be a 45-minutes of continuous electroacoustic music based on compositions by each of us. Interleaving the compositions will be improvised segments that connect each piece to one another. The performance is supported by the Internationale Gesellschaft für Neue Musik, Zürich, Pro Helvetia, and Fondation Nicati-de Luze. Hope to see you there!
