Analogous Thought and Abstract Forms in Music
In the context of the 40th anniversary of the National Center for Music Research, Documentation and Information (CENIDIM–INBA, Mexico), this Congress will focus on the relationship between music and mathematics, both applied and pure, understood as systems, techniques, technologies, theories, and creative work. International and interdisciplinary contributions are highly appreciated. The Congress will examine the essentials of analogous thought and its meaning and functioning in the broadest sense of “abstract forms in music”.
However a wider view on music and mathematics will be also considered. The venue will bring together scholars, researchers, students and artists from many disciplines, converging within the announced topics. We welcome innovative and unexpected proposals on topics that address cultural, historic, aesthetic, conceptual/experimental and/or philosophical aspects of music and mathematics.
In addtion, preparing international celebrations of Julian Carrillo’s (1875–1965) 140th aniversary, we also call for papers, panels and cultural proposals related to the birth, development and actuality of noise theory, harmony theory and microtonality, and its many practical and conceptual implications. Concerts with Carrillo’s music will be performed during the cultural program of the Congress, among other activities.
