TENOR 2019 : International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation
Call For Papers
The fifth TENOR conference will continue to offer a lively forum for current research into technologies for notation, representation and/or visualisation of the music and sound, for purposes that may include music composition, performance, representation, transcription, analysis and pedagogy. We also intend to expand the scope of the conference by calling for papers with a focus on how notation enables performance and the performer’s relationship to the score. Submissions on the below topics are encouraged:
Alternatives to common practice notation, including microtonal and electronic music notations;
Performer perspectives on technologies around notation
Digital archiving and dissemination of notations
Composer and/or performer engagement with the technology for and representation of notation·
Interactions between new notation technologies and performance
Notations for other performing arts
psychological impacts of new technologies for notation
Critical and aesthetic engagement with technologies for notation
Notating electronic music/notation for controllers
Technological developments in notation and representation for pedagogy
Notation and gameplay
Notation and live coding
Ontology of the score
Modular/generative real-time scores based on audience and/or performer input
Web/network-based notational approaches
All submissions must be made in one of the following categories:
A. Paper presentation (20 minutes)
B. Piece and paper presentation (total of 20 minutes)
C. Panel proposal for (20 minute presentation, between 3 and 6 speakers)

E. Workshops and Laboratories. These can be for composers, performers, to learn software, new plug-ins or other ideas, up to 4 hours. Proposals should be no longer than 2 pages.
F. Poster Demos. These are posters to showcase current works in progress, software development etc. Prototype systems, initial concepts, and early research which has not yet fully matured but is of interest to the TENOR community may be submitted. Those interested should submit extended abstracts (2 pages maximum) through the submission form. Said abstracts will be submitted through a light peer-review, and those accepted must then be presented as posters throughout the conference.
G. Performer’s Lab. This is an opportunity for performers to engage with alternative notations through the workshopping, rehearsal and concert presentation of works as part of the conference.
Early Career researchers and students are particularly welcome to apply. Monash University is a gender diverse community and we encourage submissions from women and non-binary applicants.
