Organised by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies, and held at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Coimbra, Música Analítica 2023 approaches musical time in its multiple meanings and relations to phenomena, its diversity in history and culture, and its many experiential modes.
Since the 1980s there has been a remarkable efflorescence of research on musical time in a variety of research fields in the humanities as well as in the behavioral and biological sciences. Forty years later, there are few venues for dissemination of music-temporal research across disciplinary and discursive boundaries. This conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Musical Time is inspired by the conviction that cross-disciplinary sharing of results and perspectives strengthens both fundamental and applied research. This conference will provide a platform for scholars across the disciplines to share results and methods, to envision together a more unified intellectual community, and to stimulate forums for collaboration.
The time and temporality in/of music present complex problems that benefit from a plurality of methods, theories and subjectivities. Música Analítica 2023 approaches musical time in its multiple meanings and relations to phenomena, its diversity in history and culture, and its many experiential modes.
