*  *  *

Published on Friday, August 02, 2019


This Symposium will explore how digital media and new technologies have affected the ways through which musicians, producers and researchers experiment and engage with "traditional" musical forms, in Colombia and in other parts of the world. The participants are invited to share their research results and methodological experimentations in the field of applied ethnomusicology, music pedagogy, performance, digital audio production or digital humanities about the study of the impact of digital technologies about current musical practices. This Symposium will also include the presence of several local musicians and producers who will conduct workshops on "traditional" Colombian music and music from other countries of the global South.



Proposals to participate as a speaker should address a research related, but not limited, to the following topics:

  • Digital Recording
  • "Traditional" Music
  • Music Production
  • Applied Ethnomusicology
  • Co-Creation Techniques

  • Practice-Led Research
  • Music and Internationalization
  • New Methodologies in Music Research
  • Digital Humanities


The program will have a maximum of 15 oral presentations (20 min plus 10mn discussion) about ongoing or recently completed research. These presentations will be grouped into several thematic panels, which may include practical workshops and plenary discussions. The language of the Symposium is mainly Spanish, but presentations in English will also be accepted. A small number of special papers may be included. These include an inaugural lecture by Pr. Samuel Araújo, director of the Laboratorio de Ethomusicologia of the Universidade Federal de Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), on the subject of Applied Ethnomusicology and its achievements in Brazil since the last twenty years.
