Background Information: International Conferences IMS Study Group MaM

MaM (Music & Media) was initiated by Emile Wennekes at the request of the Board of the International Musicological Society and launched in 2009 as an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum. MaM welcomes a broad variety of subjects, methodologies and perspectives. MaM organizes an annual conference; each edition is developed in close cooperation with local initiatives.

The IMS Study Group MaM (Music and Media) seeks to examine and explore
diverse aspects relevant to the theme of ‘mediatizing music’.

Music plays an important role in media, both in old and certainly in new media: commercials, games, films, ring tones and the like.
The other way around, media play an increasing role in music. They have changed the compositional process and characteristics of style; media severely influences performances, composing techniques, the way of recording and visualizing music.

What are the theoretical and philosophical consequences of mediatized music?

What are the economics behind these processes of mediatization?

What role does the process of ‘remediation’(Bolter & Grusin, 2000), from LP to MP3 and 4, play?

How has mediatization influenced performance practice, what was the ‘phonograph effect?’ (Katz, 1999).

What do processes of mediatizing music mean in terms of ‘liveness’ (Auslander, 1999), ‘animated liveness’ (Wennekes, 2009) and/or ‘immersion’ (Grau, 2003)?

This site will publish the Calls for Papers, Preliminary and Final Programs of the MaM conferences. See also the group established via LinkedIN.
