The AEC European Platform for Artistic Research in Music (EPARM) Conference 2020 that was supposed to take place at the Royal Academy of Music in London on 16th - 18th April 2020 has been postponed to 18-20 March 2021 and will happen online.

The EPARM preparatory Working group is in charge of organizing the AEC Annual EPARM meeting .  The Working Group is formed by active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the group, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions.

Working Group Members:
Stephen Broad (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow) - Chairman
Kevin Voets (Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool Antwerpen - Royal Conservatoire)
Henrik Frisk (Royal College of Music Stockholm)
Leonella Grasso Caprioli (Conservatorio "A. Pedrollo" di Vicenza)
Lina Navickaitė-Martinelli (Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, Vilnius)
Matthias Hermann (Musikhochschule Stuttgart)
Wei-Ya Lin (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna)

 

The AEC European Platform for Artistic Research in Music
 
EPARM Online Conference 2021
 
18th – 20th March

 
 
The European Platform for Artistic Research in Music (EPARM) is an initiative of the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC), acting as a resource for artistic research in the specific context of Higher Music Education: sharing knowledge, insights and outputs; promoting and developing the discourse around artistic research; incubating new ideas and developments; and offering support and inspiration to AEC members.  
 
The eighth EPARM conference welcomes music researchers, educators, performers and composers to a three-day exploration of artistic research in music. This edition was supposed to take place last year at the Royal Academy of Music in London, but it was postponed to 2021 during the pandemic. Unfortunately, the plans had to change again due to the resurgence of the pandemic in late 2020 and the programme arranged for the 8thedition of the EPARM Conference has been adapted to an online setting. Hopefully, our next physical gathering will take place in London in Spring 2022 with a brand new programme.
 
EPARM recognises that there is no one way to pursue artistic research in music. Nonetheless, at the core of all such research is the artistic practice itself, which functions not only as an object of study, but as a source of significant questions and a means of pursuing original insights. Presentations at EPARM will include performance or the presentation of original work.
 
The Eighth EPARM conference is presented in collaboration with the AEC’s Strengthening Music in Society project, co-funded by Creative Europe to recognise and support the role of Higher Music Education Institutions to safeguard, develop and promote European cultural heritage and diversity, to facilitate access to cultural offerings and cultural education for all, and to contribute to economic growth through the creation of new jobs and new business models in the creative sector.  A special panel session, convened to consider the issue of artistic research in society, will include contributors from different disciplinary perspectives, including fine arts and architecture. These contributors, which represent some of the signatories of the Vienna Declaration on Artistic Research, will address the role of artistic research in society. This theme will also be addressed by the invited keynote speaker Sandeep Bhagwati from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Concordia University in Montreal and board member of the German Society for Artistic Research, and by the representatives of the working group Music in Society of the SMS project.
 
To reflect the centrality of performance in artistic research, in addition to one keynote speech and nineteen presentations selected from the Call for Proposals, the event will feature a special evening programme of online performance and discussion. The short performances presented are themselves the outcomes of artistic research. Seven such performances have been selected for an evening programme called L8nite Performances, with performers contributing to a moderated audience discussion following immediately on the performances.
