Special Issue: New uses of music in media
Trans. Transcultural Music Review
TRANS-Transcultural Music Review 16 (2012) will  publish a special dossier on the new forms of music in  audiovisual media. The dossier will be prepared in collaboration  with the research group  “Música y medios  audiovisuales” from the  Society for Ethnomusicology-SIBE/IASPM-Spain  and will be edited  by Teresa Fraile, Eduardo Viñuela, and María Edurne Zuazu.

For this dossier, we are particularly interested in the role of music in the emergence of new genres (such as mash-ups, lip-dubs, etc.)  and in the transformation of the discursive strategies of the traditional media (film,  TV programs, music videos, video games,  etc.). The contemporary audiovisual panorama is constantly  changing. On the one hand, there is a fruitful interchange         between different genres and formats, such as the dialogue between music, video, advertising and film; an interchange in which the music  is deeply involved. This enables music to take different   functions in the discourses of these media, thus transforming  them, and at the same time, opens a new palette of expressive  resources. On the other hand, the spread and democratization of  new technologies has brought about these new musical genres that also imply new forms of consumption and point toward a different  aesthetic framework.

Music is now at the core of a boiling,  creative audiovisual production where its relationships with  image and the other sound elements  are not what they used to be, forcing us to rethink our approaches and understanding of  the  role of music in media.

We welcome contributions that approach  these new phenomena and processes,  especially those with an  interdisciplinary perspective. Some topics include but are not  limited to the following:
· Music and the blurring of media genres and formats.
· Sound art and image (sound installations, etc.).
· Music in film trailers.
· Audiovisual formats in live performance.
· New forms of consumption and technology.
· Rockumentaries or “making of” the album, band, etc.
· Production of music for and with mobile technology (cell phones, MP3 players, etc.).
· New theoretical models for media analysis.
We open the call for submission of articles on this topic. Articles may be written in English, Spanish, French, Italian or Portuguese. 

Deadline for submitting originals: October 15, 2011.
